Cat® S62 Pro vs Cat® S61

The next generation in thermal imaging

Just as tough.

The Cat S62 Pro is a super tough product, just like its predecessor. The certifications have changed a little, but the product remains just as tough.

Modern design.

The Cat S62 Pro is designed to be more comfortable in the hand, more pocket-friendly, yet still as tough as ever. It’s thinner, a little lighter, and boasts a larger display despite its smaller overall size.

A huge jump in thermal.

The Cat S62 Pro has the best thermal camera in a smartphone. The sensor is the professional grade FLIR® Lepton 3.5 (versus the Lepton 2.5 in the Cat S61).
Combined with some impressive software upgrades, this delivers a dramatic improvement in the quality, clarity, and versatility of the thermal images captured on the S62 Pro.

Versus the Cat S61, the Cat S62 Pro boasts

4x more thermal pixels (from 4,800 to 19,200)
30% improvement in image sharpness due to smaller pixel sizes
10% wider field of view (on a 10% larger display)
VividIR advanced image processing
MSX with user variable intensity settings
Alpha-blending with user variable fusing between the visual and thermal images, providing unparalleled context and clarity of the scene

The new MyFLIR Pro app

Isotherms and custom alarms
‘hottest’ and ‘coldest’ markers
Image annotation
Scalable and movable square and circular regions of interest
Settings checkpoints
In-app PDF report generation.

Superior Camera.

The Cat S62 Pro includes a high-quality dual pixel sensor from Sony. While it appears to have a lower megapixel count than the Cat S61 – 12MP rather than 16MP – in fact, the S62 Pro sensor actually has 24MP, but they’re configured to take advantage of dual pixel technology for fast focusing. Importantly, a camera’s megapixel number does not directly determine image quality. Sensor and lens quality, tuning, focus, and software enhancements all have a substantial impact, and we’ve invested and made big improvements in each of these areas.

The image quality and performance on the Cat S62 Pro is dramatically enhanced.
It boasts fast-focusing thanks to its dual pixel Sony sensor, and its bright f/1.8 aperture and large 1.4µm pixel size delivers great low-light performance.

Long life battery.

The Cat S62 Pro has a smaller battery than the Cat S61, but the performance is comparably impressive. You’ll get more than a day of battery life with even heavy usage.

We’ve achieved this through battery optimisation work with component providers, and by taking advantage of battery efficiencies in more recent versions of Android

Upgraded smartphone specs

The Cat S62 Pro has an improved smartphone spec across the board, with a better processor, more memory, a larger display, better cameras, and the updated software.

While the Snapdragon 660 is not the newest processor, it is Qualcomm’s long life platform, allowing us to assure customers of support over the three year life of the product, and potentially beyond. We’ve worked closely with Qualcomm to ensure the processor is appropriately powerful for the S62 Pro’s broad range of use cases.

Cat S62 Pro offers a significantly improved performance.
