CAT S31 rugged smartphone finally available in the US

CAT S31 rugged smartphone now available in the US

The 4.7-inch CAT S31 is now available in the US via Amazon for around US$330 and, although its specs do not match this price range, the IP68-rated water resistance and its compliance with the MIL-SPEC 810G standard for ruggedness make it a worthy choice for those who face tough environments frequently.

The CAT S31 has been around for a while, but it seems that its arrival to the US was delayed for unknown reasons. Introduced back in October, this handset comes with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed, but all the other specs and features are far below today's mid-rangers. However, this is more than just another smartphone, since it can be easily considered a brick with a touchscreen display due to its ruggedness.

The 4.7-inch 720p TFT capacitive touchscreen display of the CAT S31 can be used with wet or gloved fingers and is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer. Its solid build allows this handset to withstand drops from up to 5.9 feet. Fully compliant with the MIL-SPEC 810G military standard, the CAT S31 is also waterproof according to the IP68 specification (it can spend up to 35 minutes in water down to about 3.94 feet).

Other than the above, we should mention the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage (microSD support up to 64 GB), 2 MP (front) and 8 MP (back) cameras, as well as the generous 4,000 mAh battery. Combined with the low-power chipset, this power pack should provide a generous autonomy, but it can also be used to charge other devices thanks to CAT's Battery Share feature.

Those interested in grabbing this long distance runner for their outdoor adventures and the time spent in hazardous environments at work can find it on Amazon and other retailers for US$329.99 (maybe more or less depending on the discounts and promotions that might be active at a given time).

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
