Cat S42 H+ - Overview

Cat phones have a long history of producing rugged phones. The CAT S42 H+ continues this legacy, combining all the benefits of modern technology, including Android 10, with a design that includes IP68 and IP69 water/dust resistance and compliance with MIL-SPEC 810H. This makes it perfect for taking with you onto work sites, or when you are outdoors having fun. Added to this is the Hygiene Plus, which protects you and your loved ones by making the phone fully washable without damaging the components.

It also benefits from a Mediatek Heli A20 MT processor, 13MP rear camera with PDAF and 32GB of internal storage. With a 4,200 mAh battery that supports fast charging, ensuring you have usage between charges. On top of this, Android have a fully curated app and content catalogue, so you have access to anything extra you may need to get you through your day.

The Super Bright 5.5” HD+ IPS display has a 720 x 1440 resolution with an 18:9 aspect ratio, giving you a screen that offers plenty of space to work, without making the phone too large to put in your pocket. As indicated, it is unusually bright for viewing in any environment, including direct sunlight.

It also benefits from having a wet finger/glove mode, which allows you to keep using your phone while keeping your hands protected.

The primary 13 MP f/2.0 camera supports PDAF to quickly capture your images. Without any loss of detail in your photos, which have vivid and vibrant colours.

A 5MP front-facing camera with a wide-angle lens is perfect for taking selfies.

Like all CAT phones, it is beyond rugged and tough, tested in extreme conditions. This includes being IP68 and IP69 certified, meaning it is sand, dust, dirt and waterproof to a depth of 1.2 metres for up to 35 minutes. It also adheres to MIL-Spec 810H and can deal with repeated drops from 1.8 metres to concrete or steel.

A hard-wearing and non-slip rubberized TPU back is easy to hold and does not allow the phone to slide when you put it down on most surfaces.

Hygiene Plus
For the first time, the S42 H+’s external components have all been blended with a silver ion-based antimicrobial additive to keep you and those around you safe. Feel free to wash this phone with soap, water, alcohol or bleach, and it will come out the other side working as perfectly as ever.
