Have you heard of CAT S60 smartphone, which is one of the most rugged phones in the world? Probably not. Caterpillar Inc manufactures some of the most rugged phones in the world. Great emphasis is laid on durability and utility. And S60 is one of such phone which was launched in 2016. So let’s see what makes this phone so unique and robust:
CAT S60 is the world’s first phone with Thermal Imaging (What?!). It has an embedded FLIR camera, AND can measure temperatures ranging -20°C to 120°C, AND it can do so from up to 30m distance. Pretty awesome, isn’t it?
AND if that wasn’t enough, it’s reinforced with a strengthened die cast frame, which makes it drop proof to 1.8m (6ft). That exceeds even military specifications!
Oh, and it’s waterproof to 5m for up to 60 minutes. It is IP68 certified. And even when it’s wet it recognizes your touch.
I don’t remember the last time I saw a phone with a 5000mAh battery. Yes, you read that right! This phone is capable of providing a talk time of up to 30 hours and a standby time of up to 43 days. As compared to probably any other phone available in the market, this is way too high.
Screen and Processor
CAT S60 has an HD screen with is 4.7″. The display is made of Corning Gorilla Glass 4. It comes with Snapdragon 617 processor and runs Android 6.0.1, has 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage, which is decent for a regular user.
The rear camera is 13MP + FLIR thermal camera. And the front camera is 5MP.
Final words : CAT S60
This phone, although awesome, is not for the regular user. If you want a speedy phone that can run all the apps in the world, this phone isn’t for you. If you work under such conditions that require you to have a super rugged phone, then you have found your true love. And for $629.99, it won’t burn a huge hole in your pockets, as compared to some other latest flagships.
If you can wait, they’ll soon be launching an even more rugged phone CAT S61 which will be superior to S60 in every way.
