It will be available via both marketplaces, offline as well as online.
The online partner of the Cat S60 is Amazon, which is confirmed and the phone goes live on sale at 17th March 2017. Looking at some more important features to consider before buying, it has a 4.7-inch a-Si AHVA (1280 x 720 pixels) HD screen powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz which is a octa-core processor.
Looking at the optics of the brand new rugged smartphone Cat S60 it has a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF (Phase detection autofocus) and a dual-LED flash with FLIR Thermal System.
For those who didn’t know yet, FLIR stands for Forward Looking Infrared which is mostly used at Military camps or Aircrafts.
Not only this the camera can used even under deep water with decent picture clarity and work also in very low-lightning conditions.
Talking about the front it has a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture for video chatting or selfie purpose, or whatever decent thing you can do with it.
Battery power of Cat S60 is 3800mAh.
For those who’re wondering how longer Cat S60 could survive in water and how deeper, that’s 5 meter in-depth and up to 60 minutes. Talking about the drop test, it can survive even dropped from a height of 1.8 meter.

Cat S60 Our Opinion
The phone is amazing on its own but if you’re a normal person you don’t ever need this type of smartphone. Even though, if you’re in a Military or an Aircraft pilot or do some good stuffs what the phone is made for, then it would be one of the best choice for you. Well, the price is bit higher but still the features will cover up all that.
The Cat S60 can see things which are not capable by human eyes (visualising the heat), even human eyes is one of the best camera ever. So, considering this smartphone is not bad anyway.
