CAT S41

Display

The rugged CAT S41 comes with a 5-inch FHD capacitative touchscreen with 1980 by 1080 pixels of display resolution. Its screen is duly protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and like the CAT S31 it also supports auto wet finger and glove use. The Super Bright display means that it allows readability while under direct sunlight.

Design

The design is really what the CAT S41 is all about. Rugged, sturdy and enduring in almost all conditions, the smartphone is really built for use anywhere even underwater. Yes!! I said underwater because it is can last for up to an hour underwater up 2metres, it can also survive drops as high as 1.8m(6ft) without damages, dust-proof, shock-proof, vibration and pressure resistant. The S41 was built to survive.

Storage & Processor

The S41 is powered by an Octa-Core Helio P20 MT6757 processor running at a clockspeed of 2.3GHz and a Mali T880 GPU to handle its graphics. The smartphone carries 3GB of RAM with a 32GB internal memory which is expandable up to 2TB using a microSD.
