AGM, the Chinese rugged smartphone maker, has announced two new rugged smartphones today. The AGM G1 and AGM G1 Pro not only have 5G but also have a ton of features that you do not see on a regular smartphone.
AGM G1 Series Design:
The two phones in the series share a similar design but there are subtle differences that distinguish them apart. AGM says it has designed a new modular chassis for the phones which allows them to be moded.
The two phones have a waterdrop notch for the front-facing camera and a thick bottom bezel. On the back is a big round protrusion for the gigantic speaker that it has.
The cameras and LED flash are arranged around the protrusion for the gigantic speaker it packs. The cameras and LED flash are arranged around this protrusion while a fingerprint scanner is placed below.
The AGM G1 differs from the AGM G1 Pro with respect to the orange accent on the latter. This accent can be seen around the display, on the back, and on the corners of the phone.
It is noteworthy to mention that these are rugged phones with big batteries, so they are not as light. The AGM G1 weighs 360g while the Pro model is 10g heavier.
AGM G1 Series specifications:
The AGM G1 and AGM G1 Pro both have a 6.53″ FHD+ LCD display. While it does not say the type of protection available on the screens, AGM claims that it offers diamond-grade resistance.
There is also glove support and the phone will continue to work at a temperature range between -30-degree Celsius and 60-degree Celsius. It can even operate for about half an hour when the temperature drops to -40-degree Celsius.
At the helm of both the devices is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC 5G processor paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage. The devices also support storage expansion.
Coming to the cameras on the devices, there is a triple-camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor, a 20MP Night Vision camera, and a 2MP macro camera.
The phone can take clear and sharp photos in the dark thanks to the Infrared night vision camera, this camera is also useful for detecting hidden cameras.
However, only the Pro model has support for thermal imaging. Both devices feature a 16MP selfie shooter.
The AGM G1 Series has a 3.5W speaker with an amplitude of 112dB. There is also a Smart PA that ensures the sound output is clear and not distorted. Another feature both phones have is a one-key rangefinder positioned at the top for measuring the distance between two positions.
AGM says that both the phones not only have an IP68 MAX rating but also an IP69K rating which is for protection against high temperature and high-pressure water. They are also MIL-STD-810H-certified.
There is a 6,200mAh battery inside each phone and they ship with an 18W power adapter. Both the AGM G1 and AGM G1 Pro run X OS 6 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box.
AGM G1 Series Price
The AGM G1 has a price tag of Yuan 3,699 or $578(44,792 INR) while the AGM G1 Pro is priced at Yuan 4,999 or $782(58,477 INR). The two phones are available for pre-order on JD.com and will be available for purchase on October 31.
