CAT S60 is one of the most interesting devices at MWC 2016
Last week, Caterpillar presented the first phone with a built-in thermal camera CAT S60, which will be released on the market this summer. At the Mobile World Congress, the company is represented by a relatively small place, which hides one of the most interesting devices of the event.
CAT S60 arrives with a standard smartphone hardware of mid-range, which includes Snapdragon 617 chip-set, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The display is 4.7-inch and has HD resolution, these features make it capable smartphone for standard use.
Typically the CAT smartphone models can withstand very extreme situation, in fact it is one of the most durable smartphones in general. And Cat S60 is not exception it can withstand a fall on a cement of about 2 m. and to operate below 5 m. water for an hour.
Its thermal camera is not really just a toy for fun use. Its purpose is to help construction workers, electricians and plumbers, for example. Another interesting use much more mass is demand for warm objects in the dark. So if at night you lost your dog in the backyard and want to see where it is, you will not need to use a flashlight.
The main camera on the CAT S60 is a 13-megapixel while on the front is 5-megapixel. Interestingly, the thermal camera can take pictures, video and time-lapse videos. Temperature data from the objects are available not only in real time, but also when viewing photos later. Also you can use different color schemes for visualization, which can give different information.
If you need to point out a problem of CAT S60 it is its price, which is $599. It is important to clarify, however, that this smartphone is designed for professionals and not the general public. Therefore this problem is not so important, but even if it was, CAT S60 would remain one of the most interesting devices at Mobile World Congress this year.http://gizbrain.com/2016/02/24/cat-s60-is-one-of-the-most-interesting-devices-at-mwc-2016/https://i1.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/cat-s60-thermal-1.jpg?fit=800%2C450https://i1.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/cat-s60-thermal-1.jpg?fit=190%2C150TECH NEWSAndroid,CAT S60,Caterpillar,MWC,MWC 2016,smartphoneLast week, Caterpillar presented the first phone with a built-in thermal camera CAT S60, which will be released on the market this summer.
