RUGGED TO THE CORE
WHAT'S UNDER THE HOOD?
There are no short-cuts to building a truly rugged phone. Built from 10 years of research and experience in rugged design and materials science, all Cat phones have been engineered to be tough from the inside out.
Our phones are packed full of high-grade, waterproof components that are protected by impact-resistant casing and and dirt-proof seals, meaning that they are as rugged on the inside as they are on the outside.
Drop-proof, dust proof and shockproof, Cat phones are tough from the inside out.
IP68 & IP69
Each and every Cat phone is fully sealed. The casing is sealed with a unique pressure-sensitive adhesive – significantly tougher and more durable than glues used in mass market smartphones – that secures all openings against liquid or solid ingress.
Even the speaker and microphone ports are protected by a double-layered acoustic mesh to keep out dust and harmful particles, and the aperture is offset to prevent the mesh from being inadvertently punctured by a foreign object.
Big batteries, resistant to degradation.
When access to power is scarce or unreliable, it is important that Cat phones customers can rely on a long battery life between charges. Every Cat phone boasts a large battery, intelligently optimised in software and at the operating system level, to deliver power for longer.
These batteries are also tested in high and low-temperature conditions, and are physically protected by a puncture-resistant metal shield and surrounding shock absorption. While the device design allows for normal expansion and venting, the battery is also held firmly in place to prevent phone drops from causing unexpected movement that could damage other components or the battery itself.
CORNING® GORILLA® GLASS SCREENS
Cat phones’ displays are protected by toughened Corning® Gorilla® Glass, specifically engineered to be both highly scratch-resistant and able to withstand being dropped multiple times without cracking.
As well as being super strong, Gorilla® Glass has a flex tolerance, and Cat phones employ a unique, pressure-sensitive adhesive that moves and flexes with the screen as needed, reducing the risk of cracks and breaks.
survive splashes and spills, soakings and full submersions
All Cat phones are waterproof. They can be fully submerged in water, and even washed and cleaned with soaps, disinfectants, alcohol or bleach-based cleaners.
Today, many mass-market handset manufacturers claim their devices are waterproof, but very often accompanying small print will make clear that this protection is only assured when the device is fresh from the box – that waterproofing will degrade over time and can be compromised through general wear and tear. This is not the case with Cat phones.
