Cat S60 is a rugged smartphone with a camera unlike any you have ever seen on other devices. The robustly waterproof device packs an innovative thermal imaging camera, octa-core processing power and latest Android software.
Design and Display
For a device having construction workers and other artisans as its main targets, the Cat S60 should not catch someone unawares by its design.
This one is not built to appeal to you with aesthetics and ergonomics; it is more like a war or military material. It features a strengthened die-cast frame and will most likely come out unscathed from a fall of almost six feet.
If your job involves working under water, the Cat S60 is also ready to go with you, being able to survive at 5-meter depth for up to an hour. But you will need to activate a pair of shutters for it to be fully submersible.
The S60 sports a brilliant 4.7-inch HD capacitive touchscreen that responds to both wet fingers and gloves. The screen is protected by tough, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 4.
The main selling point of the Cat S60, however, is its 13-megapixel rear camera with dual flash. The FLIR thermal imaging shooter is capable of infrared heat mapping.
Cat S60 is able to detect temperature levels whose existence you can easily miss. This rugged smartphone is the world’s first with integrated thermal camera.
The awesome snapper has many use cases, including seeing in the dark, pinpointing overheating appliances in the home, and spotting heat loss around doors and windows. It can also see through smoke. The camera, which can be used underwater, is supposedly able to detect heat from up to 100 feet away.
Buyers also get a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The FLIR camera app allows users to combine images from the two snappers.
Hardware and Software
As for the other innards, the Cat S60 is driven by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor. With ample 3 GB of RAM provided, this powerful CPU is given enough muscles to deliver awesome performance and impressive multitasking.
Onboard storage is also generous at 32 GB, with this being expandable with a microSD card as well. The phone boots latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system for the best of user experience.
The 4G LTE-enabled Cat S60 has power supplied to it by an impressive 3,800mAh battery.
Pricing and Availability
Cat S60 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Cat S60 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N120,000 to N160,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
