Cat is well known for making tough smartphones and Cat S30 is another addition to their line-up.
Design and display
The device has a dimension of 141.9 x 72.74 x 13.25mm. It has squared corners with a degree of curvature to them to make it feel less brick-like in the hand and pocket. The sharper edges serve as an edge for a drop onto concrete from a height. Additional additions of a toughened grey colour rubber/plastic compound absorb these knocks and allow the handset to meet Military Spec 810G rating. The Cat S30 is IP68 certified water and dust resistant mobile phone. Along with that, it is also shock resistant and immune to rain, humidity, and thermal shocks. The Cat S30 features a 4.5-inch multitouch display with 480 x 854 resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
