A tough phone for hard-working professions, the S42 32GB Smartphone from CAT features an array of environmental protections, such as an IP68 rating that makes it both dust and waterproof. It has also earned the MIL SPEC 810H certification, ensuring the S42 can withstand drops of up to 6' and is thermally protected for extreme temperatures. The rugged construction even allows the S42 to be repeatedly submerged and scrubbed with hot water and soap. It's an ideal smartphone for the healthcare professional, construction worker, or first responder.

Even though the CAT S42 is a rugged work phone, it still provides you with a high-quality mobile experience. The 5.5" IPS LCD HD+ screen is ultra-bright, making your content readable even in direct sunlight. Fitting the durable style of the phone, it sports Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for scratch resistance. When it comes to mobile photos and video, you get a rear 13MP camera and front-facing 5MP camera for selfies. Both cameras support video capture up to 1080p resolution at 30 fps.
