Cat B15Q is the first truly rugged Android KitKat smartphone to be available globally
The new Cat B15Q is powered by a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor, weighs 170 grams, measures 125 x 69.5 x 14.95 mm, and sports a 4-inch WVGA Gorilla Glass 2 display with wet finger tracking. On the back, the handset has a 5MP camera with LED flash. Other features include HSDPA, aGPS, Bluetooth 4.0, a VGA front-facing camera, “Waves audio,” dual noise-cancelling microphone, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,000 mAh battery (for up to 16 hours of talk time).
The B15Q is dust-proof, water-proof, and shock-proof (IP67, MIL SPEC 810G). It can be dropped from up to 1.8m without suffering any damage, and it can operate at temperatures ranging from -13°F (-25°C) to 131°F (55 °C). Cat didn’t say how much the B15Q would cost. But we’ll find out more about the handset “this summer”, when it’s going to be launched globally. So, any takers?
