The Cat S62 Pro’s Standout Feature
The Cat S62 Pro’s pièce de résistance is its built-in FLIR Lepton 3.5 sensor that gives this device professional-grade thermal imaging capabilities. This sensor delivers the highest resolution in the consumer smartphone market, showcasing a 4x increase in thermal pixels compared to previous iterations. This sensor’s thermal imagery can be overlayed with images from the device’s 12MP dual-pixel Sony camera or used with FLIR’s MSX technology for enhanced detail.
The thermal imaging system, however, replaces the laser-assisted distance measurement feature available in Cat S61. Despite this, the thermal imager is far from a gimmick. It provides enough detail to accurately locate objects on the screen, be it a leak, hotspot, electrical short, or elevated temperature, making it a valuable tool for professionals.
Unmatched Durability and Ruggedness
The Cat S62 Pro comprises a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) back and an aluminum frame. This has been built to ensure that the smartphone endures the harshest conditions. On the front, the phone has a 5.7-inch FHD+ display shielded by Gorilla Glass 6, complete with a pre-installed protective film. It also has IP68 and IP69 certifications and a MIL-STD-810H durability rating. All this guarantees the smartphone resists will dust, water, drops, and extreme climates.
Powerful Battery and Storage
The Cat S62 Pro comes with a 4,000mAh battery lasting up to 48 hours on a single charge. Under the hood, the phone has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It ships with Android 10, but Bullitt Group, the OEM behind Cat phones, promises an Android 11 update and three years of security updates, a feature that sets it apart from many rugged phones.
Smartphone for Professionals
Supporting Android Enterprise for custom business profiles, the Cat S62 Pro comes with OfficeSuite to edit, read, and create Word, Excel, or Powerpoint documents. It also features a toolbox app with a library of productivity tools created by Cat and its partner companies, from a bubble level to a VR learning platform. This feature-rich smartphone, available only in black, can be purchased directly from Cat, Amazon, and other major retailers globally.
The Cat S62 Pro is a cut above the rest in the grand scheme of rugged smartphones. Its unique professional-grade thermal imaging capability and rugged durability make it a standout. Its shortcomings are few and are vastly outweighed by its impressive features, making it a reliable tool for professionals. The Cat S62 Pro is not just a phone; it’s an investment in durability, function, and professional-grade capabilities.
