Stealth Mode disables LTE and e-911, ensuring secure, off-grid communication. Samsung Knox provides hardware-level encryption, and Dual Data at Rest (DualDAR) offers added security. Serverless license activation allows versatile deployment. Running Android 13-based One UI 5.1, both phones come with the Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) for situational awareness and the Battlefield Assisted Trauma Distributed Observation Kit (BATDOK) for real-time patient encounter information. Support for Samsung DeX and dual VPN chaining enhances security.

The cost of these smartphones remains undisclosed as they are exclusively intended for military operators and not accessible to the general consumer market.
