A new smartphone is on the market that claims to offer premium battery life and superior rugged credentials. It’s being branded as the Cat S48c Smartphone – Cat being the world-renowned maker of bulldozers, diesel engines and other very rugged things.

So, is this the bulldozer of smartphones?

Sprint, who is the first U.S. wireless carrier to launch the Cat S48c, said the phone is designed to keep working even in tough environments, offering exceptional performance when needed most.

The Cat S48c is capable of withstanding drops, dust, vibration, and even extreme temperatures.

It can be submerged in up to four feet of water for 35 minutes, while its 13 MP camera can take underwater pictures whether on site, in the great outdoors or on vacation.

Cat phones are built for individuals who work in demanding environments across a range of industries or who take part in recreational activities where their mobile phone is routinely exposed to stressful conditions.

This includes everything from construction, agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, logistics and field services, to recreational activities such as hiking, fishing, biking, climbing or rafting.

The Cat S48c’s 4000mAh battery provides up to 30 hours 3G talk time, while its heavy-duty rugged credentials including IP68 water and dust proof and MIL SPEC 810G ensure it is built to continue working no matter what it’s faced with.

Sprint said the Cat S48c is available as of Nov. 9, in all Sprint retail channels. It will cost $20 per month with Sprint Flex Lease (SRP: $480 plus tax).
