CAT S60’s sensor can identify and make you aware of the faulty equipment in a room filled with smoke. This feature will be immensely useful for the people working in the fire department as they won’t have to spend a lot of time in identifying the source of fire for preventing further damages. Thus, S60 is an excellent alternative to smoke detectors.
The above-mentioned feature will work only in a 100 feet radius. CAT has labelled the S60 as the world’s first waterproof phone. S60 will be functional even if the phone is immersed in water at a depth of 16 to 17 feet. When dropped in water, S60 should be removed within 60 minutes or else it will get bricked and become non-functional.
The CAT S60 is a rugged phone as its frame and cover have been built under the die casting process. It is MIL 810G certified device. Thus, it can withstand damages when dropped from a typical height of 1.8 meters.
CAT S60 comes with latest software and hardware. It has Snapdragon 617 SoC, 3GB RAM, and a large 3800 mAh battery. This phone offers top class audio experience, and it supports sound frequencies of up to 105 dB. It features Android 5.1 OS, CG4, and 4.7 inch IPS 720 pixels resolution display.
