Cat phones has unveiled a new flagship rugged handset which improves upon its predecessor with measures that include an enhanced thermal camera.

The Cat S61 (which follows on from the S60) boasts a built-in FLIR thermal imaging camera that has improved software to give it a greater level of image contrast, and an expanded range of temperatures covered up to 400°C.

There’s also been an upgrade from VGA resolution (as seen on the S60) to HD when it comes to the detail taken from the rear camera to be overlaid on the thermal image.

Cat has further improved the MyFlir app to allow for direct live streaming of the thermal image from your phone.

As well as the FLIR camera, the Cat S61 also incorporates an indoor air quality sensor which detects the presence of air pollutants (VOCs or volatile organic compounds), issuing a warning if any dangers are found.

Another neat feature is laser-assisted distance measurement which can be used to measure distances of up to 10 meters.
