Caterpillar, a US based company, is all set to launch their rugged phone product CAT S60 in Pakistan. The smartphone is the first thermal imaging product of its kind.

Powered by FLIR, it is a rugged smartphone that is perfect for the people who work under harsh conditions. It not only is water resistant but is also dust, solar radiation, and shock resistant.


The CAT S60 comes with a 4.7 inches HD display with a high resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and a-Si AHVA capacitive touchscreen. Moreover, the screen of the CAT S60 is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass for protection.

In addition to this, the S60 comes with an Android 6.0 Marshmallow Operating System. Its internal memory storage is deemed to be 32 GB but can be extended up to 128 GB with the available option of a microSD card.

The smartphone has a 13 MP back and a 5 MP front camera with autofocus and dual flash capabilities that come with underwater video and picture ability.

The new Caterpillar phone supports an extended Non-removable Li-Ion 3800mAh battery. As a result, the phone is going to give 30 hours of talk time and also is going to support a 2.0 quick charge.

Expected Price

The price of this high-end smartphone on its release is expected to be around PKR 64,000. Considering the specs that this smartphone is offering, the money charged seems justified.

Universal Smartphones, the company dealing with CAT in Pakistan, is looking for distributors and plans on bringing more phones in Pakistan in the future; sooner we’ll see “Blue Phones” under their umbrella.

Distribution opportunities for CAT S60 are expected in all the major cities of Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Peshawar.
