Digital Camera World Verdict

If you're a professional working in an environment that requires a rugged phone, the CAT S62 Pro could almost be considered a perfect phone. With rugged specifications that make the phone capable of withstanding a high pressure water jet(!), you can be sure that the CAT S62 Pro will stick with you through thick and thin. The built-in thermal camera will also be a huge draw for those needing to use this technology – especially considering the significant update its had since the CAT S61.

The CAT S62 Pro is the latest flagship model from the Bullitt Group, the global licensee for CAT phones. The CAT S62 Pro is the third generation of the CAT 60 series and includes the latest in Thermal by FLIR technology to make thermal cameras even more accessible for professionals. 

There are plenty of improvements from the previous CAT S61 model's thermal camera, including 4x more thermal pixels, a 30% improvement in image sharpness and the highest resolution FLIR Lepton sensor. There are also some exciting updates to the rugged aspects of the CAT S62 Pro, with the phone achieving Military Spec 810H and an IP68 and IP69 rating (IP69 means that the phone can withstand a high pressure water jet!).
