For your money you get a rough, tough smartphone with a Deca Core 2 CPU, Android Nougat (with an update to O coming) and a 5″ TFT FHD (1920×1080) screen which is optimised for outdoor use. This has sunlight readability plus wet finger and gloved finger tracking. There’s 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, a 16 megapixel rear shooter, 8 megapixel selfie, 3.5mm audio jack and all the usual geeky bits you’d expect, but it can also cope with being dropped from 6 feet too.
It’s resistant to thermal shock (and works in temperatures from -30°C to 65°C, vibration, humidity and salt.
It’s also got GPS, 4GB RAM, 64GB of on-board storage, a microSD slot and a 4,000mAh battery.
There’s a range of additional packs available, which include external GPS antennas, additional batteries, straps and bike mounts plus much more.
Now, the news today is that Vodafone will be taking this phone on, so you’ll be able to buy it soon on contracts. That’s a big thing for the Bullitt Group, who are the people behind this and the CAT phones.
