Announcing the Cat S60 - the world’s most waterproof smartphone comes with an integrated thermal camera.
The new CAT S60 from Cat Phones is the world's first smartphone with a built-in thermal imaging camera from FLIR.
Cat Phones have also announced that the new handset is waterproof up to depths of 5 meters for one hour making this the world's most waterproof smartphone.
The device is as rugged as it is smart thanks to it's strengthened die cast frame and MIL-STD 810G certification. On the front you'll find a 4.7" touchscreen display that's protected by Gorilla Glass 4 while on the rear you'll find a 13MP camera and the FLIR thermal imaging camera - there's also a 5MP front-facing camera.
Powering the CAT S60 is an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor backed with 3GB RAM and running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There's 4G connectivity and a 3800 mAh battery too.
The device is IP68 certified so is waterproof at depths of up to 2 meters as standard, however if you close the two yellow tabs you'll see on the front of the device near the speakers/mouthpiece you can then submerge the handset up to 5 meters for one hour.
Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 protects the front of the device and is 1mm thick, more than double the usual thickness you'll find on other mobile devices (around 0.4mm). the display itself is 720p in resolution and can reach a maximum brightness of around 500 nits.
The device is due to be released around the end of May this year with pricing to be confirmed.
