randomguy, 18 Jul 2018no fingerprint.... :( old FLIR sensor :(But much better case, voc sensor and laser.
I had a nice chat with Flir and they confirmed that the phone has 80x60 resolution Lepton module, the same that CAT S60 had. The only difference is, that it is calibrated to allow for higher temperature readings.
Wulf, 10 Jul 2018The FLIR camera's resolution is 1.440 x 1.080 pixelSorry, but the FLIR sensor does not have a resolution that high.
The highest resolution sensor currently available is 640x480 which would cost you a multitude of thousands of dollars.
The Lepton sensor used in the S60 was 80x60, possibly this is the same for the S61 unless they use a Lepton 3 which has 160x120.
Since i saw the S61 supports high and low gain mode however, I can only assume they utilise the 160x120 Lepton 3 module.
Hello, your answers are just speculations or imaginations please real numbers.
especialy the resolution if the IR capability of the FLIR module..
A note for those who think they can use this to replace professional tools. DON'T
Those who need a laser measurer you should get a real laser measurer instead. A good one costs about 100euros
raskoljnjikov, 03 Jul 2018Flir lepton has 160x120 resolution i think.The FLIR camera's resolution is 1.440 x 1.080 pixel
rgloor, 27 Jun 2018Yesterday I received my pre-ordered S61. I must say, I am very pleased with the build quality... moreHas the thermal resolution been confirmed at this point? I can only find speculation as to whether it's 80×60 or 160×120, and CAT seems to be pretty quiet about it. A little concerning since I would say it is the main feature of the phone. I'm a maintenance electrician working in an industrial setting and would really need at least 160×120 to be able to troubleshoot effectively on the more complex systems.
Yesterday I received my pre-ordered S61.
I must say, I am very pleased with the build quality.
- bottons feel much better
- rubberized back gives a much better grip
- it feels much better in the hand
- despite being a bit bigger than the S60, it doesn't feel so
- the USB-port cover handles much nicer than the one from S60
Started to move over all my stuff. Will continue tonight.

If you think about it, trying to make a versatile waterproof phone that can withstand the stuff that this phone can, why ruin chance all of that quality for the sake of removing the battery, I can't think of many reasons a CatPhone owner would want to remove the battery.
Well done cat
Strange and disappointing that it doesn't have a removable battery, I would've expected otherwise for a device targeted at professionals.
Quasimodo, 28 May 2018Seems to be a really good phone, even better than the S60.
I still love my S60, but the S61 w... more@Quasimodo:
Good news for you: The CAT S61 does have dual band WLAN (2.4GHz & 5 GHz) !
Here is how to find reference to it:
Go to the catphones press release for the CAT S61 (see following link):
At the bottom of the Press Release are the "Cat S61 key features:"
The second last bullet point shows you the dual band WiFi.
You can also see it on the Spec Sheet. (I will make a new posting for the Spec Sheet. Hoping that it will be published this time.)
AnonD-733422, 22 Feb 2018Great phone,but too expensive.Price about 500$ will be more realistic.@AnonD-733422:
Well this phone is very rugged, but more over, those parts built in - like the FLIR Lepton Camera Module - are quite expensive.
With all that stuff in it, I would say it is quite a good deal, compared to other phones.
mato, 13 Mar 2018What resolution does the FLIR camera have and how far can it see, please?@mato:
Regarding distance, it is a physical issue. The further away you are, the more the heat radiation is vanished, the higher is the influence of other heat signals/sources and the less accurate is the measurement. The lower the camera resolution and sensitivity is, the higher the above factors are influencing the result.
FLIR Camera RESOLUTION:
The S60 had an early version of the FLIR Lepton module (to my knowledge, a Lepton 2.0 module), which has a thermal resolution 80 x 60 pixels and a temperature range of -20 to 120 °C.
On the official announcement of the S61, it says, that the S61 carries the Lepton module of the S60 with some software upgrades.
However, it also says, that it is now capable of providing a temperature range of -20 to 400°C. That would however indicate, that it would be a Lepton 3.x module.
And I found a source indicating, that the CAT S61 is actually having a Lepton 3.5 module. But I don't know, how reliable this source is.
But this Lepton 3.5 module would have 4 times the pixel count of the Lepton 2 module of the S60 and having a resolution of 160 x 120 pixels. That would be owesome.
Here is the link to the source:
Hope this helps.
Greetings from Switzerland,
Michael Buzz, 10 Apr 2018I own Cat S60 and it is water resistant up to 5m but S61 is resistant up to 3m? I had very hig... more@Michael Buzz:
The S60 is normaly water resistant up to 2m. Only with the two switches/doors flipped close (closing speaker and microphone, if I am right), one could go deeper to 5m.
My impression was, that due to those switches/doors speaker and mic quality was not that great.
I actually prefer the new system.
(If one really needs to dive deeper, one could put it in a cover/dive bag. Just my 2 cents.)
