CAT S60 Rugged Smartphone with FLIR Thermal Camera Launched in India at Rs. 64,999



The rugged CAT S60 smartphone from Caterpillar is now officially launched in India. It comes with a whopping price tag of Rs. 64,999 and will be sold online exclusively through Amazon India. It can be purchased in store through branded retail outlets across the country starting March 17th. Apart from the B2B sales, the company is also trying to sell the CAT S60 for the outdoor active segments. It can be a good alternative for those who look for a standalone thermal camera as the CAT S60 sports a built-in thermal camera sensor from FLIR.

Earlier: March 11th, 2017 – Catphones from Caterpillar are mostly known for sporting the rugged design, and at the MWC 2016, it introduced a new smartphone called CAT S60. It is the world’s first smartphone with a thermal camera attached to its back. Now, the company has mentioned bringing the same rugged device to the Indian market. Just like TCL manufacturing Blackberry smartphones, Caterpillar has made agreements with Bullitt Group to use its CAT brand for making smartphones. The CAT S60 runs on Android Marshmallow 6.0 and offers almost stock Android UI.

Talking about the specifications of the CAT S60, it sports a 4.7-inch display with HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) and a brightness of 540 nits, which is higher than most of the other smartphones. It supports wet finger and glove support and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on top. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and is comes coupled with Adreno 405 GPU. There is also 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Coming to the thermal camera, the brand embeds an FLIR camera module, who is a pioneer in a thermal imaging technology.

The use cases of this camera include detecting heat loss around the windows and doors, spotting moisture and missing insulation, as well as it would be helpful in identifying the over-heating electrical equipment. It is a 13-megapixel image sensor capable of visualizing and highlighting temperature contrasts. There is also a dual LED flash supporting the rear camera of the CAT S60. On the front is a regular 5MP selfie camera with f/2.4 aperture. Another interesting feature of this device is that it can measure the temperature from a distance of up to 50 to 100 feet.

It can be an excellent tool to see through smoke enabling emergency first responders to help. The company also claims that the CAT S60 will offer high quality audio experience, i.e. > 105 dB. It also comes with a rugged body just like other CAT smartphones; it comes with a strengthened Die Cast Frame which is said to be drop-proof up to 1.8 meters height on a concrete floor. The device is also dustproof as well as waterproof. With all these features, the device comes powered by a 3800mAh non-removable battery. It measures 147.9 x 73.4 x 12.66 mm and weighs 223 grams.

The device supports dual SIM dual standby and offers 4G LTE on both the SIM’s, but only one SIM can be connected to 4G network at any point of time. Globally, the device is priced at $599 or €649, and we don’t expect it cost cheaper in India. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the CAT S60 smartphone.
