CAT phones today announced the launch of its new flagship product, the Cat S60; the world’s first smartphone with an integrated thermal camera, and the world’s most waterproof smartphone. The device will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2016, in Barcelona.


Smartphone will feature  a 4.7” HD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, wet fingers and glove touch support, as well as a Snapdragon 617 chipset to light it up. When it comes to memory, the Cat S60 ships with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. The rear camera is 13 MP with dual LED flash, and a 5 MP selfie snapper adorns the front. All that jazz runs on Android Marshmallow, and is backed by a hefty 3800 mAh battery,

 Cat S60 includes an embedded thermal camera from FLIR, the global leader in thermal imaging technology, allowing Cat phone users to be the first in the world to use their smartphones for a multitude of use cases, including: detecting heat loss around windows and doors; spotting moisture and missing insulation; identifying over-heating electrical appliances and circuitry; and seeing in complete darkness.Cat S60 is also waterproof to depths of up to 5 meters for one hour, allowing it to be used as an underwater camera, pushing the boundaries of mobile technology, and how and where it’s used.

The thermal camera visualizes heat that is invisible to the naked eye, highlighting temperature contrasts. It can pick up heat and measure surface temperatures from a distance of up to 50 to 100 feet, and see through obscurants such as smoke, enabling a huge range of use cases for building professionals, utility workers, outdoor sports enthusiasts, and emergency first responders to name but a few.

 “To stand out from the crowd in today's smartphone market requires true innovation and we are proud to partner with FLIR to announce what is truly a world’s first,” said Peter Stephens, CEO Bullitt Group, global mobile device licensee for Caterpillar. “The Cat S60 represents a milestone for smartphones. We are excited for thermal technology to be in the hands of Cat phones customers and to discover the myriad of daily time and efficiency use cases it will present for them.”

“We are delighted to work on the latest Cat phone with Bullitt Group, to integrate our thermal camera into their proven, industrialized smartphone to create a truly innovative and groundbreaking mobile product,” said Andy Teich, President and CEO of FLIR. “The CAT S60 presents mobile users around the world with new capabilities – a ‘sixth sense’ experience that only thermal imaging can offer.”
The Cat S60 is also an extremely tough and robust, world class rugged smartphone. It exceeds military spec, is built to withstand drops onto concrete from up to 1.8 meters, and it’s dustproof as well as waterproof. Its versatile, super-bright display can be viewed in bright sunlight, and the touchscreen can be controlled with wet fingers or while wearing gloves

The Cat S60 will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress, Feb 22nd – 28th, Barcelona Stand CS80. It will be available later this year RRP €649 / $599.
