Cat S60 Boasts a Thermal Camera
Cat Phones today announced the S60 smartphone, a fully rugged handset that is the first to include a thermal camera. The thermal camera allows the S60 to see and take pictures of heat signatures at a range of 50 to 100 feet. Cat says the camera can be used to view heat loss around windows/doors, see over-heating electrical appliance, and see in the dark. The S60 is also more waterproof than most other rugged handsets. It can sit in five meters of water for up to an hour. The S60 has a 4.7-inch HD screen with Gorilla Glass 4, wet finger tracking, and glove support. The phone has a large 3800mAh battery and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The Cat S60 has a 13-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front camera, and an extra loud speaker. The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Cat expects to ship the S60 later this year for $599.
