With the Mobile World Congress on doors and media industry doing to Barcelona suitcases, the fact remains that continue to drop the ads smartphones early 2016 in a pre-largest exhibition of mobile telephony that is proving to be of most entertaining compared to previous years.
This year nobody wants to lose a second, and no more waiting Cat has debuted the S60, which will be his toughest to date smartphone. However, the famous brand of machinery and know them by their armored phones, so this time is another surprise, and comes in the form of thermal camera.
The Cat S60 will be the first smartphone in the world, both Android and other platforms, which includes a signed by Flir thermal camera, a manufacturer with proven experience in thermal imaging systems, night vision and infrared cameras.
CAT UPS THE ANTE OF THE TOUGHEST PHONES WITH THE FIRST CERTIFICATION, WATERPROOF UP TO 5 METERS, BUT THE BIG SURPRISE COMES WITH THE FLIR THERMAL CAMERA OF THE NEW CAT S60
Yes, and it is not so strange in the environment in which it will move the new Cat S60, is that this is a smartphone designed specifically to work in the most dangerous and demanding conditions.
What has made Cat’s house a standard Flir camera inside the chassis and housing of its new S60, with the same sensor and functionality has said chamber independently. So the Cat S60 is able, thanks to its thermal camera, producing a live thermal image, measure surface temperatures and record thermal images both still and video.
The resolution of the Flir camera is only 640 x 480 pixels, which confirms the view of the manufacturer about its use, which is intended for practical functionality and not leisure. Many professionals appreciate a phone like this that can measure temperatures or hot bodies differentiate between weeds or other objects, as rescue teams, law enforcement, electricians, farmers and even veterinarians.
ALTHOUGH CAT INDICATES A RATHER PROFESSIONAL UTILITY, SURE MANY HAVE ALREADY THOUGHT ABOUT HOW TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A THERMAL IMAGING CAMERA AT HOME, AND THAT A SMARTPHONE CAN DO SOMETHING TODAY SO DIRECTLY CONVERTED INTO A SPECIAL SMARTPHONE
Mid-range in a very industrial design
The Cat S60 does not fool anyone, it is a smartphone designed to work and fight, and that is why its design has no concessions to a very industrial look. To this, help those incorporating multiple physical buttons for ease of use in all conditions, from an emergency call button to the usual audio and navigation controls.

In the hardware section, we are not facing such a special smartphone, because a screen is integrated 4.7-inch 720p HD resolution, enough but very average with 312 pixels per inch density. Of course, it has improved the brightness to be useful outdoors and uses a highly sensitive digitizer that lets you use the device with gloves or wet fingers.
Part of the process is handled by a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with eight cores Cortex-A53 1.5 GHz, 64-bit support, GPU Adreno 405 and LTE modem X8 Category 7.
The memory is 3 GB RAM, with an internal storage expandable another 32 GB, and Cat has added a conventional 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, plus another 5-megapixel front.
The battery, meanwhile, rises to 3800-mAh capacity, which together with the configuration panel and chosen chipset assures a more than decent autonomy.
The resistance itself is above the average
The front glass is signed by Corning, although in this case the Gorilla Glass 4 has thickened to 1 millimeter from the usual 0.4 mm using other manufacturers, a necessary shielding for an armored phone.
The frame and the chassis of the device are made of aluminum, while the rear is constructed with a composite plastic-based hardened material having a fiber-like appearance carbon.

Bullit, the company that assembles these smartphones to Cat, the evidence confirms that the device is able to withstand falls on concrete from 1.8 meters up to 26 times, ensuring its strength and the full functioning of the internal components in the event of shocks.
In addition, the Cat S60 supports liquid to a depth of 2 meters for 1 hour, but not only that, but it is the first smartphone certified to withstand dives to 5 meters depth for 1 hour. To do this, though, we will need to close the yellow caps that protect the microphone, headphone and speaker device.
