CAT S50 specifications
|Dimensions||5.69 x 3.03 x 0.5 inch|
|SIM type||Micro SIM|
The weight of CAT S50 is about 6.53 oz with battery, which is average compared to most of the smartphones with same size. The dimensions of this CAT smartphone are average (5.69 x 3.03 x 0.5 inch). Smaller smartphones are more compact and easier to carry around, but they may have smaller displays that can be harder to read and interact with. A micro SIM is a smaller (15 x 12 x 0.76 mm) version of the standard SIM card used in mobile devices. The micro SIM card provides the same functionality as the standard SIM card, allowing the user to connect to a cellular network and use mobile data, voice, and messaging services.
|OS version||Android OS v4.4 (KitKat)|
|SoC||Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8926|
|CPU||Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7|
The CAT S50 comes with Android OS v4.4 (KitKat) out of the box, but it is upgradable to the next OS. Android is closely integrated with various Google services, such as Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Drive, which makes it easy for users to access and manage their data across multiple devices. The S50 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8926 CPU. This mid-range, quad-core CPU is capable of delivering fast and efficient performance for a wide range of tasks.
The S50 utilizes Adreno 305 GPU. A GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized chip that is primarily designed to handle and accelerate the processing of graphics and visual data. It is responsible for rendering images, videos, and animations on a smartphone screen. Adreno GPUs are designed to work in conjunction with Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors. The latest Adreno GPUs support advanced graphics features such as high dynamic range (HDR) rendering, virtual reality, and augmented reality applications.
|Screen size||4.7 inch|
|Resolution||720 x 1280 px|
The 4.7 inch phone comes with IPS display. The IPS display provides enhanced features, such as optimal viewing angles, color accuracy, invariable color reproduction and better power consumption. Smaller smartphones are generally more compact and easier to handle. The size of the screen is measured diagonally, from corner to corner. A larger screen typically requires more power to illuminate, which can impact battery life. The display of CAT S50 is multitouch capable. Multitouch technology enables the device's touchscreen to detect and interpret multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously.
|Internal storage||8 GB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
With 2 GB of RAM, a smartphone can run multiple apps simultaneously without experiencing any significant lag or slow performance. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. 32 GB of internal storage is generally considered to be the minimum amount of storage you would want in a smartphone. The S50 has only 8 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the S50 (8 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
|Main camera||8 MP, 3264 x 2448 px, autofocus|
The S50 offers only a single-camera setup. The single camera can still be sufficient for many smartphone users, depending on their photography needs and preferences. The main camera of the S50 is equipped with autofocus. An autofocus (or AF) optical system uses a sensor, a control system and a motor to focus on an automatically or manually selected point or area. Very few Android cameras come without autofocus. The S50 does not have optical image stabilization (OIS). OIS technology is more commonly found in higher-end smartphones and is designed to reduce camera shake and blur, resulting in sharper and clearer images and videos.
|GSM 2G bands||850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900|
|Network coverage||2G / 3G / 4G|
|Wi-Fi||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n|
|USB||microUSB 2.0, USB host|
|Headphone||3.5 mm jack|
The CAT S50 supports 4G/LTE networks. 4G stands for fourth-generation mobile networks, which are wireless networks that provide faster data transfer speeds and greater network capacity than previous 3G networks. To connect to a Wi-Fi network on the CAT S50, you simply need to go to the Wi-Fi settings on the device, select the network you want to connect to, and enter the password. With Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your S50 smartphone to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and more.
This phone has a built-in GPS. GPS is a highly accurate navigation system using signals from satellites to determine a location on the Earth's surface, irrespective of weather conditions. Most phones have a GPS unit on board. The S50 is NFC (Near Field Communication) capable. NFC stands for Near Field Communication, and it is a wireless communication technology that allows two devices to exchange information when they are brought close together.
The S50 phone has built-in FM radio receiver. FM radio allows users to tune in to local radio stations and listen to live broadcasts, news, music, and other content. The S50 has a microUSB port. MicroUSB is a type of USB connector that was commonly used on older smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. The S50 smartphone has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is a small round port, that allows you to connect wired headphones or earphones to the device.
|Type||Li-Ion 2630 mAh, non-removable|
The Li-Ion 2630 mAh, non-removable battery gives the smartphone a good battery backup. The Li-ion is a low maintenance battery which offers high energy, is lightweight and does not require periodic full discharge. The battery of S50 isn't removable without voiding the warranty.
|Sensors||accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, proximity|
|Specials||Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Water, dust and drop proof|
Smartphones today come with a wealth of sensors to facilitate a better user experience. The accelerometer provides information about the smartphone's movement in three axes: X (horizontal), Y (vertical), and Z (depth). This CAT phones come with proximity sensor. This proximity sensor detects how close the phone is to an outside object, such as your ear. The S50 phone comes with a compass sensor. A compass sensor is a device that provides accurate directions in relation to the earth's North and South magnetic poles. Gorilla Glass has a high level of scratch resistance, reducing the likelihood of everyday scratches and abrasions.
