Cat S60 thermal imaging smartphone, Cat will be heading to this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, to present a new smartphone that’s not only waterproof and shockproof but also comes with an onboard thermal imaging camera.

Thermal cameras form images by measuring different levels of infrared radiation emitted by sources from several meters away. The intensity of radiation is determined by the temperature of the source. This technology can be used to detect heat leaks around doors and windows, to spot patches of damp and even to see in the dark.

Until now, thermal imaging with a smartphone was only possible via an external add-on camera module. Here, Cat integrates the technology directly into a handset with an onboard camera system made by thermal imaging specialist FLIR Systems. The camera runs with a comprehensive application offering various functions (still image, panorama, video mode, etc.).

The Cat S60 is a robust handset too, offering shock-resistance and drop-resistance (from heights of up to 1.8m onto concrete) thanks to its reinforced frame and Gorilla Glass 4 screen. It’s also waterproof to five meters.

Otherwise, the Cat S60 is a 4G Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) smartphone with a 4.7-inch HD display. It uses the Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor with a 32GB internal memory and 3GB of RAM. It features a 13-Megapixel main camera with dual flash and a 5-Megapixel front-facing camera.

The Cat S60 should be due for upcoming release priced at €649 or $599.
