CAT S50c rugged Android smartphone hits Verizon Wireless
CAT S50c
This handset is an improved version of the two-year old S50, offering pretty weak specs, but having been IP67-certified for protection from the elements and drops.

Next to construction vehicles, CAT has been always known for its rugged phones. Although the CAT S50c is an update of the CAT S50, a handset that has been released back in late 2014, its performance is still far behind today's flagships. However, the CAT S50c is not a handset aimed at customers who value performance and looks before anything else, targeting professionals in need of a reliable device that can withstand drops, shocks, dust, and water.

CAT S50c has the following technical specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 64 GB
  • Display: 4.7-inch TFT multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 8 MP back with autofocus
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with A-GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Battery: 2630 mAh

This handset can easily handle drops from up to more than 4 feet, dust, water, and extreme temperatures. CAT S50c is compliant with IP67 and MIL-SPEC 810G standards. Those interested can only get it in silver finish from Verizon Wireless, its price being $399.99 USD.
