S60 with infrared camera has dustproof and waterproof function and it can be submerged for 1 hour at 5 meters depth. furtherMILIt is also compliant with the -810 G standard and combines the robustness that it can withstand even if dropped from 1.8 m in height onto concrete.
Display also "Gorilla glass 4There is no drop in shock wear countermeasures, such as protecting with ". Even if you use gloves, even though your hands are wet, you can operate it, and ingenuity has been applied that can be used at construction sites.
