Photo Announcement. Cat S53 - a simple, secure, expensive smartphone

The Bullitt Group, which produces smartphones under the Cat (Caterpillar) brand, has not been particularly active lately. And Cat S53 is just their first smartphone this year.

Cat S53 belongs to the classic armored smartphones. In the best traditions of Chinese smartphones, the specification contains a full set of magic abbreviations - IP68, IP69K, MIL-STD-810H. Like, they drowned in water for 30 minutes, dropped it on steel from a height of 1.8 m - he didn’t care about anything. However, no explanation is given. Which side is IP69K? Which MIL-STD-810H Compliance TestsCaught? For what purpose are you interested?

Among the interesting and not quite smartphone features, one can note a very loud speaker (107 dB) and, it seems, an extremely bright flashlight (whether it is there separately at the end, or it is not clear whether they had so much fun with the camera flash).< /p>

As a smartphone, the Cat S53 is nothing particularly interesting. Everything is fine, but boring.

The chipset is Qualcomm Snapdragon 480, so we expect about 300 thousand points in AnTuTu. Well, there is support for 5G networks.

Memory is fine. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. There is aSupport for memory cards, but the tray is hybrid.

The battery is capacious, 5500 mAh. Charging is slightly accelerated - 18 watts. There is also wireless charging (speed not specified).

The set of cameras is simple. The front has a resolution of 16 MP. Rear - two pieces, 48 ​​+ 2 MP. Basic, yes macro. The main camera uses a popular, but far from the latest sensor Sony IMX582.

Other. There is an NFC module, Type-C, dual-band Wi-Fi. A fingerprint scanner is also available, located on the back.

The price is only for Foggy Albion. £449 (₽32600, $541). How-toh not very cheap.
