Cat S62 released exclusively on T-Mobile
Below is a cut and paste press release. I have not played with this phone, but have generally liked the Cat phones I’ve reviewed even if I didn’t get to test them to death. I have thrown a couple of images from the press kit in that were not there to break up the text wall of stats, but other than that and removing excessive LFs this is a cut and paste.
The new Cat® S62 is a rugged smartphone with muscle, designed to be put to the test all day long
NEW YORK CITY – Bullitt Group, the global licensee for Cat® phones, today announced its Cat S62 rugged smartphone. It is available first at T-Mobile for customers across the US looking to benefit from premium Cat rugged credentials for resilience, safety and hygiene to create the ultimate work phone.
Bullitt Group developed this smartphone primarily to excel in any work environment, from industry to America’s rural heartland. The Cat S62 exceeds US military standard MIL- SPEC 810H passing high and low temperature, thermal shocks, salt mist conditions, vibration and tumble tests. It also meets stringent safety requirements for protection even in potentially hazardous conditions, certified to Non-Incendive, Class I, Division 2, Group A-D, T4. In addition, its superbright, 5.7″ display is protected by scratch and shatter-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 and is optimized for outdoor use with wet-finger or glove-on working technology.
The Cat S62 includes a fingerprint sensor for security, login and remote payments and a dedicated programmable side button for easy push-to-talk capabilities or instant access to the camera, flashlight or a preferred app. It has a large battery for up to two days in the field without needing to recharge. When you do need to recharge, the device supports Qi Wireless Charging, Quick Charge 4.0 and Pogo pins for quick power when and where you need it.
For many first responders, construction workers, logistics, agriculture, field workers and more, reliable equipment is essential. The Cat S62 is deliberately built for dependability, drawing from more than a decade of experience and combining the ultimate military-grade technology with lessons learned from those in the field.
“A rugged Cat device offers exceptional value particularly for business and enterprise customers who employ individuals in rugged conditions or who do remote field work, by reducing additional repair costs and extending the useful life of the phone,” said Steve Morgan, Head of Channel Marketing at Bullitt Group. “Bringing the Cat S62 to T-Mobile customers combines Military Spec hardware built for the job with a reliable network for the ultimate work phone combination.”
*Battery times (talk time, standby time, and more) are based on 3G and are subject to network and phone usage.
