Cat has launched its S60 – the world’s first smartphone with an integrated thermal camera, and the world’s “most waterproof” smartphone.
The S60 was unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2016, and features an embedded thermal camera from FLIR.
The S60 can detect heat loss around windows and doors, spotting moisture and missing insulation, and see in complete darkness.
The thermal camera visualizes heat that is invisible to the naked eye, highlighting temperature contrasts.
It can measure surface temperatures from a distance of up to 30m, and see through obscurants such as smoke.
The Cat S60 is also waterproof to depths of up to 5m for one hour.
It’s hardware features include:
- Drop-proof to 1.8m, MIL Spec 810G
- 4.7” HD touchscreen
- 3,800mAh battery
- 13MP main camera, 5MP front-facing camera
- 4G LTE capable
- Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor
- 32GB storage, 3GB RAM
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
The Cat S60 will be available later this year at a recommended retail price of $599.
