Smartphone nowadays offers a lot of features and high end hardware but the one thing that they don’t offer is durability because almost all of them are fragile and might break upon a drop from a substantial height. This is where the new CAT S50 comes in as it’s the most durable smartphone you will get running Android on it. In terms of design the device is much thicker than a normal smartphone but the extra bulk is there for a reason as the smartphone is water, dust, vibration and extreme temperatures resistant as well as shatter proof. CAT S50 also has a textured back which would give it a good grip.

In terms of specs the CAT S50 is not all that great but it offers minimal specs and is equipped with a 4.7 inch display that supports a resolution of 720P but has a high level of brightness, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 8GB of onboard storage with SD card slot and also supports 4G. The rugged smartphone also has an 8MP camera on its back that shoots HD videos and a front facing camera as well and will be running stock Android kitkat 4.4 out of the box.

CAT has once again build a rugged smartphone but with improved specs, sure the smartphone does not offer high ends specs available on the market but that is not the goal of the CAT S50 as its designed to be rugged and durable and that’s what it does best. CAT S50 is going to retail for $500 in the US unlocked which is a lot to ask for a smartphone with low specs but it’s made by CAT after all.

What do you think about the new S50 from CAT will you go for one?
