Cat announces the B35 - a rugged 4G feature phone

Ro, 20 September 2018

Cat briefly showcased the B35 rugged featurephone during this year's IFA and now the company is ready to reveal its complete details along with a launch time frame.

It is IP68 water and dust protected meaning it can go up to 1.2 m under water for 35 minutes. The chassis is also shock-proof and Cat has says it can survive 1.8m drops on concrete. Additionally, the handset is MIL-810G compliant so it can handle extreme cold, heat, salt mist, humidity and vibration.

The internals are hardly impressive, but then you wouldn't expect that from a featurephone anyway. You get a Snapdragon 205 driving a 2.4-inch QVGA display. Memory is just 512MB while storage is 4GB but can be expanded via microSD card. A 2,300 mAh battery helps the B35 run KaiOS 2.5 feature OS with Google Assistant, Google Maps, Google Search and YouTube all pre-installed apps.

Cat says the B35 is hitting the shelves in early October, which is not that far away now. Pricing is yet to be confirmed though.
