CAT Phones Releases Thermal Imaging First Smartphone S60
The Cat S60 is the first phone with a FLIR thermal camera built-in Android police-Android News, Apps, Games, Phones, Tablets.
The FLIR one thermal camera is pretty neat, but it’s not exactly convenient to plug it into your USB port all the time. Now, Cat has announced the first phone that has FLIR’s thermal imaging technology built-in, the CAT S60.
The Specs actually look a bit more in-step with modern Android Phones that I’d expect, and it has all the usual Cat rugged features.

Thermal Imaging First Smartphone S60 : Review
CAT has posted a few images from the camera on Twitter, and the quality looks very similar to what we saw with the FLIR one.
The CAT S60 has two rear cameras, including a Lepton thermal imaging sensor and a 13-megapixel camera. The phone also comes with a 4.7-inch display and 3 GB of RAM. Once strictly an extremely expensive tool used only by law enforcement and the military, thermal cameras are now accessible to anyone with a smartphone and a $250 accessory. But starting with Caterpillar’s new rugged S60, thermal imaging sensors are starting to be build right into smartphones.
These could be useful for detecting thermal inefficiencies in your home through out the cold winter and hot summer months allowing you to fix those problems. That could easily save your over time. Being submersible is a level of toughness I’d like to have for sure.
