Introducing one of CAT’s latest rugged smartphones – The S40. Built with ‘survival of the fittest’ in mind, you can use the S40 in conditions where you would normally hide a flagship device away. Featuring a powerful battery, high-performance processor, water resistance, shock absorbent casing and integrated camera – the S40 is an essential smartphone for those who work in harsh conditions and need a reliable phone that performs above and beyond.


Crafted with a solid metal chassis and vulcanized rubber coating, the S40 delivers everything you would expect from a phone that describes itself as ‘rugged’. The textured rubber shell provides excellent grip that sticks to any flat or angled surface. With slightly curved edges, the phone is very comfortable when in your hand, allowing for easy one-handed use when you’re on the go. Boasting an certified rating of IP68 and military testing spec of 810G – the phone is more than capable of dealing with daily drops and the occasional swim. The S40 can survive submersion in fresh water of up to 2 meters, drops from a 2 meter height, thermal shocks and it’s complete sealed from any dust/salt particle damage.


Fitted with a 4.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen display and covered with a layer of scratch resistant Gorilla Glass. The screen puts out a resolution of 540x960 with a pixel density of 234 pixels per inch. The ultra-bright screen allows for legible reading under direct sunlight at any angle, with a dimmer feature that allows for night time browsing without putting a strain on your eyes. The highly responsive screen is quick and easy to navigate and also supports a wet finger and glove mode. Perfect if you’re in wet/cold environment and it’s imperative that you keep your hands warm.


Equipped with a rear 8-megapixel camera with in-built autofocus and LED flash. Capable of capturing images accurately and rapidly, photos have excellent levels of detail and an array of natural-looking colours. The front facing 2-megapixel camera is more than adequate for taking the occasional selfie or group shot. The in-built LED flash lets you take shots at night time with decent levels of detail, ideal for sharing with family and friends via social media.


Running Android 5.1 (Lollipop), the S40 has an user interface that’s simple and easy to use. Allowing you to navigate through the menus smoothly and without any confusion. The S40 includes a pre-installed ‘App Toolbox’, a useful function that enables you to browse through work-related applications without the distractions you may find on the playstore. Here you can browse through productivity enhancers, GPS apps, hiking maps or virtual assistants. With such a large selection of applications, you can filter by keywords or even by industry. One of best apps that works with the S40 is the lone worker/SOS app. Designed for those that work in remote places, the app can be used if you’re in distress or in an emergency, enabling you to send a GPS location and call for assistance.


Powered by a non-removable 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery. Offering an impressive 39 days of standby time and up to 18 hours of talk time, you will be hard-pressed to push the limits of this device. With such a large battery, you can stay connected with family and friends for much longer and not worry about how much battery you have left.


The CAT S40 includes a snapdragon 210 chipset, quad core cortex cpu, Adreno 304 graphics processor and 1GB RAM. This high-end hardware allows you to run the latest applications, demanding games and multiple windows at the same time. Performance is fluid and smooth, without any lagging or issues. The S40 includes 16GB of internal memory which is plenty for the OS, images, videos and a few applications. If you want should want more memory, you can add an additional 64GB via the dedicated SD card slot.
