Samsung Galaxy S23 and Galaxy XCover 6 Pro Tactical Edition released in the US

Published

on


In addition to the flagship Galaxy S23, Samsung America is introducing tactical features to the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro for the very first time to serve the distinct requirements of various activities and conditions. Both tactical editions are now available in the US. Starting on September 20, 2023, a few IT channel partners will be selling the Galaxy S23 and XCover 6 Pro Tactical Edition. Both systems make use of the capabilities of the firm’s commercially available mobile devices with highly customized software.

This marks the business’ long-standing partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense and is now in use by all U.S. military services. It also turns out great for those who depend on FirstNet, the only national communications network established for public safety and constructed by AT&T.

Connectivity features:

  • 5G LTE, CBRS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi 6E all come as commonly used cellular technologies for both versions, the first ever tactical editions that are FirstNet Ready.
  • Covert Lock, which offers stealth mode and deactivates baseband communications and GPS, can be activated for higher security missions and produces an RF signature that enables both stealth mode and covert lock.
  • Configuration of connections that are only to approved 5G networks using a new 5G band-locking mode
  • Compatible with mission-ready applications like the Battlefield Assisted Trauma Distributed Observation Kit (BATDOK) and the Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK),
  • The first devices to ship with both Samsung’s Tactical Settings App and the TE-Enabler app from PAR Government pre-installed
  • The auto-rotating lock screen allows usage in a flip-down chest mount, while the night vision mode offers night vision optic equipment.
  • The new Adjustable Screen Timeout function allows users to prolong the lock screen timeout length beyond 30 seconds, one minute, or five minutes.

Security features:

  • Samsung Knox security embedded into Samsung mobile devices, from the chipset up to keep data safe and locked down, is a layer of protection for both.
  • It complies with the NSA’s commercial technologies for classified (CSfC) components list, enabling safe access to active-duty and civilian military employees.
  • Knox Dual Data at Rest (DualDAR) uses two levels of encryption to secure classified data up to the top secret that is kept on the devices.
  • A new Hypervisor Device Manager (HDM), which is in depth to thwart all sorts of hacking, is one of the new solutions for enhanced security.
  • Both versions will receive software support through January 2027 as a result of an extended four-year software maintenance cycle.
  • The solutions may be managed and deployed on-premises or in a hosted environment; all credit goes to Knox Enterprise Firmware Over-the-Air (E-FOTA).

Mission-ready through its versatility:

  • Military personnel may minimize their burdens and reallocate weight for mission-critical items like ammunition, medical supplies, food, or water because of its lightweight and compact design.
  • XCover 6 Pro Tactical Edition is MIL-STD-810H compliant for surviving severe altitudes, temperatures, vibration, and humidity and can sustain a fall of up to 1.5 meters.
  • Long-lasting removable battery, MicroSD card slot, Glove Mode, and the ability to store and retrieve up to 1TB of map data
  • The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and dynamic AMOLED 120Hz display of the Galaxy S23 offer tactical computing and detailed reading of map data.
  • The toughness of the S23 tactical edition has been improved with the collaboration of the firm with Juggernaut Case and Kagwerks to create tough, military-grade cases.

Moreover, Blass further added that despite the aforementioned colorways, Samsung could exclusively offer the Galaxy Z Fold6 in white and crafted black colors, while the Z Flip6 could feature white, crafted black, and an additional peach color. Also, these colors could only be exclusive to Samsung’s online stores in certain regions.

No New OS Update for Samsung Galaxy A52, A52 5G, and A52s 5G

Published

By


Samsung Galaxy A52 is a family of three members, including the Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A52s. It lost its software support after receiving the latest Android 14-based One UI 6.1 update. 

Recently, Samsung has delivered the One UI 6.1 update to the Galaxy A52 lineup, and that will be its final major OS update. The brand debuted all three Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G, and Galaxy A52s back in 2021, when it followed the policy to offer three years of major Android upgrades and four years of security patches for specific devices. According to this policy, Samsung promised to offer three years of major OS updates to the Galaxy A52 lineup. 

Finally, Galaxy A52 models have received all the allotted OS updates. They arrived with Android 11-based One UI 3 out of the box, and until the current Android 14-based One UI 6.1 update, they have received their three major OS and One UI updates. Since they have received three major OS updates, they are only eligible to receive security updates. Those security updates will come every three months for the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A52 5G, at least until 2025, and monthly for the Galaxy A52s. It will be interesting to see whether or not security updates will be available after that. 

On the other hand, the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A51 5G received security patches for four years, but it seems that the A52 lineup could get a fifth year of security updates before Samsung discontinues support. As far as Android and One UI updates that bring new features are concerned.

Samsung always relies on providing the best possible experience to its Galaxy smartphone users. The current example is Samsung’s premium flagship series, the Galaxy S24 lineup, which has garnered significant attention from the audience due to the incorporation of innovative AI features dubbed Galaxy AI. This significantly increased the sales of the S24 series, making them Samsung’s best-selling high-end models. In light of this, Samsung has begun developing the upcoming Galaxy S25 smartphone series, recently revealing the Galaxy S25 Ultra in an IMEI database.

After the success of the current flagship models, the Galaxy S24 series, Samsung has been working on its next premium device, the Galaxy S25 series, behind closed doors, with several leaks and rumors already floating around. Meanwhile, the latest evidence strongly suggests that Samsung is officially developing its next premium flagship Galaxy S25 series, as the Galaxy S25 Ultra has already surfaced in an IMEI database.

Samsung Galaxy S25 Ultra fleshed out on IMEI listings:

According to the information exclusively shared by Android Headlines, the Korean tech company is officially manufacturing the upcoming Galaxy S25 series. The source further stated that a device has been fleshed out in their IMEI listings with the model number SM-S938U, which is considered to be the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra. While the U in the model number is synonymous with the US, the Galaxy S25 Ultra will hit international markets and will not be limited to the US market for sure.

However, the IMEI listings could only provide hints through the model number that significantly suggest that the device is the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra, while there’s no other detail regarding the key specifications of the Galaxy S25 Ultra yet. Meanwhile, according to several other rumors fleshed out in the recent past, Samsung could bring the Galaxy S25 Ultra with some upgraded specifications and features, including the fact that the fact that the device could probably be powered by Qualcomm’s next-gen powerhouse, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset, in the US, while other regions will receive the S25 Ultra with the Exynos 2500 chipset.

In addition, other leaks of the Galaxy S25 Ultra could probably include a quad-camera setup with a 200 MP main camera, a 50 MP ultrawide angle, a 50 MP telephoto with 3x optical zoom support, and a 50 MP super telephoto with up to 5x optical zoom support. As no other details could be gathered regarding the Galaxy S25 Ultra for now, it’s expected that Samsung will infuse some of the of the best and most admirable features and upgrades into its next flagship Galaxy models.
