CAT S60 (SIM Free/UK)
The CAT S60 is a smartphone like no other. It is the world’s first smartphone that has an integrated thermal camera.
Setting itself apart from other products on the market the S60 appeals to those with specific use cases.
Those use cases can include underwater use to a depth of 5 meters.
SIM Free /Unlocked UK Stock
Provided without a SIM card and no contract or tariff with the phone, the S60 is supplied factory unlocked.
This means you can use a SIM card from a network provider of your choice. The handset is branded only with the manufacturer's logos, in this case, CAT and no network branding.
The CAT S60 has 2 x nano sized SIM slots, making this a Dual SIM phone.
As such, it means you can have one or two SIMs in the phone at any one time. Use both a personal and work SIM card in the same phone or maybe a local and international SIM, the choice is yours. Or if you need only one SIM slot, leave the other empty.
Colours and memory variants
The S60 is available in one memory and colour variant only. This is the black and silver colour as shown in the images, with an internal memory of 32GB.

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.
The S60 is a smartphone that has a defined purpose and will appeal to a niche but does so in a way we have not seen of 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.
The S60 is different in that it is waterproof to a depth of 5 meters for up to 1 hour and built into this phone is a thermal imaging camera.
This is the world’s first smartphone with an integrated thermal camera and the world’s most waterproof smartphone.
FLIR is the global leader in thermal imaging technology and it is their technology that is built right into the S60.
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.
The Cat S60 is also waterproof to a depth of up to 5 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.
The MIL Spec 810G rating which involves drop tests from a height of 1.8 meters is also retained on this phone.
The stylish strengthened die cast frame helps with the strength and ensuring the S60 does not look at all bad.
Remember this is a phone, so calls, text messages are core to what the S60 can offer.
Powered by a powerful processor and coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory this comprehensive mobile device is practical in domestic and professional environments.
The operating system is Google’s Android platform and the S60 runs version 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box.
Further refining an already capable and powerful OS, one of the key features of Android 6 is ‘Doze’ that intelligently saves battery life when the device and apps are not in use.
You will see excellent usage and screen on times, even when you take into account all the great features of this phone and the fact that it does have a 4.7” touchscreen display that is toughened with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and has wet finger and glove support.
An additional benefit includes the ability to control the permissions of applications, so you remain in the control; turn app permissions off and on when you want, rather than when the app suggests is best.
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 13-megapixel rear camera, documents created and stored on the internal memory or checking in on what is happening around the world, 4G and WiFi 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 S60 from CAT can be obtained from CAT approved retailer Clove Technology.
