AGM X1: IP68 Certified Rugged Smartphone

As an outdoor device, AGM X1 has been pushing the limits of rugged phones by packing high-end tech. The phone is IP68 certified. Wondering what IP68 certification is all about? Here’s a brief description – IP stands for International Protection marking, a standard by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). The ‘6’ in IP68 stands for the phone’s resistance to dust, general dirt, and sand. You have probably heard of IP67 certified smartphones too. The ‘7’ in IP67 is a rating given for water resistance.
