The CAT S42 is an ultra-resistant mobile capable of withstanding abrasive agents, being able to completely sanitize it with hot water, soap and disinfectant without fear of its integrity
Since the declaration of the global pandemic by COVID-19, much has been said about how to properly clean our phones and other devices, since its continued use makes this type of devices contain more germs than we could imagine.
In any case, none of the guides that we have seen these days on hygiene in electronic devices recommend cleaning them using abrasives, something only within the reach of the toughest smartphones on the market like the ones Bullitt Group builds under the popular CAT brand, a classic in industrial environments that has long had a very interesting Android catalog starting from the affordable CAT S32 to terminals with FLIR thermal cameras and functions of walkie-talkie.
And this morning he was proud the last of the CAT catalog members, a newly assembled device by Bullitt that will seek to offer maximum confidence, durability and reliability under the name of CAT S42, and oriented to risky jobs, complicated environments and adventure activities.
Their hardware possibilities are medium or basic cut, but in its case it democratizes maximum resistance at a price of only 249 euros, and even offering the possibility of wash and disinfect it completely with hot soapy water without having to suffer for it.
This is the CAT S42, the new affordable and off-road smartphone built by Bullitt Group, which will eliminate worries in harsh environments and even allow you to disinfect it with hot soapy water

Affordable, reliable and essential in harsh environments
Entering into the matter of the capabilities offered by this new CAT S42, the truth is that the terminal shows again a very attractive industrial design built with ultra-resistant and high-quality materials, starting with its Gorilla Glass 5 of Corning origin.
Its use is job-oriented and more hostile environments for a mobile device, and also for adventure activities or places with extreme temperatures, since it is able to keep operating in a much wider temperature range than the other smartphones available on the market.
His endurance credentials are extensive, starting with his IP68 certification against liquids and dust and finally ensuring its durability against shocks, with certification of MIL-SPEC-810H military grade that tests its operation after repeated falls from 1.8 meters on concrete.
