A smartphone means different things to different people. For some it is a tool for business, for some a simple communication tool, and for others, it helps them embrace a social lifestyle.
With the previous S60, CAT created a phone with a defined purpose, which appealed to a niche. This was done in a way not seen before with many other products.
CAT phones have long been associated with the trades, such as builders and plumbers amongst others, but also suited to those who lead an active outdoors lifestyle.
In the CAT S61, they have refined this design and taken it to a new level.
The new improved FLIR thermal camera benefits from a greater temperature range, now, -20 to 400. Improved MSX image resolution and an enhanced app with Live Streaming of thermal images.
FLIR is the global leader in thermal imaging technology and it is their technology that is built right into the S61.
A multitude of use cases can be thought of, including but not limited to; detecting heat loss around windows and doors; spotting moisture and missing insulation; identifying over-heating electrical appliances and circuitry, and seeing in complete darkness.
The thermal camera visualises 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.
Being able to measure distance and area in an easy and convenient way is important to most trade people. Having to use a traditional tape measure for this purpose can result in inaccurate readings. So, laser-assisted measurement readers have become popular in recent years. Having one built-in to your phone, means it is always in your pocket.
The CAT S61 also features an indoor air quality sensor from Sensirion. This has the ability to alert users to high levels of indoor pollutants (Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs). So, they can be aware if their working environment is a potential risk.
The MIL Spec 810G rating which involves drop tests from a height of 1.8 meters is also retained on this phone.
The Cat S61 is also waterproof to a depth of up to 3 meters for up to one hour, allowing it to be used as an underwater camera, pushing the boundaries of mobile technology, and how and where it’s used. As, you would expect it is also dustproof, so you can use it in this type of environment.
The stylish strengthened aluminium reinforced die-cast frame helps with the strength and ensuring the S61 does not look at all bad.
Remember this is a phone, so calls, text messages are core to what the S61 can offer.
Powered by a powerful octa-core processor and coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory this comprehensive mobile device is practical in domestic and professional environments.
The operating system is Google’s Android platform and the S61 runs version 8.0 (Oreo) out of the box. With the potential to upgrade to ‘P’ in the future.
You will see excellent usage and screen on times, even when you consider all the great features of this phone and the fact that it does have a 5.2-inch touchscreen display that is toughened with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and has wet finger and glove support.
Being an Android smartphone you, of course, have access to Google's full suite of applications and Google Play for downloading more. Enjoy Gmail, Drive, Maps, Calendar, Translate and more including Google Play Games, Books, Music & Movies.
Whether you are sharing images captured on the 16-megapixel rear camera, documents created and stored on the internal memory or checking in on what is happening around the world, 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity mean that in most instances you are you can remain connected to the world around you.
A unique smartphone with some very powerful use case scenarios the S61 from CAT can be obtained from CAT approved retailer Clove Technology.
