Both the Galaxy S23 Tactical Edition and the XCover 6 Pro Tactical Edition are pre-installed with special apps such as the Android Team Awareness Kit (ATAK) and the Battlefield Assisted Trauma Distributed Observation Kit (BATDOK).

The latter uses two separate encryption layers for enhanced protection. The security feature protects data stored on-device even when the phone is powered off or has not been authenticated, and it also meets the requirements of the NSA for protecting confidential data.
The Galaxy S23 Tactical Edition is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset
The Galaxy S23 Tactical Edition is equipped with the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset while the XCover 6 Pro Tactical Edition sports a Snapdragon 778G SoC.
