Cat S62 to be offered to millions of US subscribers
Rugged phone pioneer Bullitt Group has signed a partnership with T-Mobile USA to offer the military-spec Cat S62 phone to T-Mobile’s 103.4 million subscribers across 7,800 retail stores.
Bullitt is the global licensee for Cat phone products. The Cat S62 will be T-Mobile’s first rugged device in its portfolio.
It will also be part of T-Mobile’s Connecting Heroes program, a 10-year commitment to providing free service and 5G access to all public and non-profit state and local fire, 911, police and emergency medical services departments — saving them up to $7 billion.
The Cat S62 exceeds US military standard MIL-SPEC 810H passing high and low temperature, thermal shocks, salt mist conditions, vibration and tumble tests.
It also meets stringent safety requirements for protection even in potentially hazardous conditions, certified to Non-Incendive, Class I, Division 2, Group A-D, T4.
The 5.7-inch display is protected by a scratch and shatter-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 6 and is optimised for outdoor use with wet-finger or glove-on working technology.
A fingerprint sensor controls access for security, log in and remote payments and a dedicated programmable side button for easy push-to-talk capabilities or instant access to the camera, flashlight or a preferred app.
The battery can run for up to two days without a recharge.
Bullitt Group was set up in 2009 to design, manufacture and distribute ruggedised phones. It is the global licensee for Cat (Caterpillar Inc.) Land Rover and Motorola for mobile phones and related peripherals.
