UK-based Bullitt Group is a maker of military-grade smartphones and the global licensee for CAT® phones.
It recently launched the first fully antimicrobial mobile phone - the CAT S42.
Every exterior component of the entry-level Android device, including the Corning Gorilla Glass 5s screen, has been treated with Biomaster antimicrobial technology.
The technology inhibits the growth of microbes on the phone’s surface for the lifetime of the unit.
The device can also be thoroughly washed with soap and water, sanitizers and even bleach without damage.
The Bullitt Group is looking to provide additional phones with antimicrobial technology later in the year.
