High transfer rates thanks to 5G and Wi-Fi 6
The Galaxy S20 + 5G EE is the first Samsung business smartphone in Germany to support the fifth generation of the wireless standard. (1) The new technology allows data to be transferred at extremely high speeds. This opens up new possibilities for mobile work: Large files can be shared and downloaded at lightning speed, and video conferences can also take place outside of the office without any problems. Both the Galaxy S20 + 5G EE and the Galaxy S20 EE also support Wi-Fi 6. This enables a fast internet connection and high security, even with access points. Whether in the office or in heavily frequented public areas such as airports, Wi-Fi 6 ensures a stable connection with low latency.
In no time at all to the mobile workplace
The devices of the Samsung Galaxy S20 EE series are not just smart on the go, but also in the office or at home: With the integrated Samsung DeX function and a Samsung multiport adapter or a USB-C to HDMI cable, the smartphones can be used pair with a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. In addition, many apps such as Microsoft Office, Google Chrome or Adobe Photoshop are optimized for use on a large display, so that the smartphones create a fully-fledged workspace. OneDrive, Outlook and Office Mobile apps from Microsoft are already integrated in the Galaxy S20 series. In addition, “Link to Windows” in the quick settings bar ensures a seamless connection to Windows systems. This means that data can be called up quickly and incoming calls can be received from the computer.
For customers with the highest security requirements
The more sensitive data and applications are on mobile devices, the more important it is to protect them against unauthorized access. From email access and online payments to digital replacement of keys and ID controls, smart devices are offering more and more applications that are subject to strict security standards. Samsung stores confidential and cryptographic data separately from ordinary mobile storage media, in an embedded secure element (eSE). For example, pin numbers, passwords and cryptocurrency access are stored in a safe that is specially protected against manipulation. The solution, certified with CC EAL (Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level) (2) 5+, the highest level for mobile devices, combines a new security chip (S3K250AF) with optimized software. This chipset is used for the first time in devices of the Galaxy S20 series. The security platform Samsung Knox also provides the usual protection. This is integrated in terms of both hardware and software and offers active protection on several levels from the first switch on. This way, information can be securely shared with colleagues and customers – in the office or on the go. With Quick Share it works even without a network connection with up to five colleagues nearby.
