AGM X1: First Dual Lens IP68 Certified Rugged Smartphone Released

AGM X1 is a high-end rugged smartphone launched in China on July 22, 2016. It’s more famously known as the “outdoor smartphone” and has become the best-selling outdoor smartphone in China. After the success of the device in China, the international version of AGM X1 is about to be launched in other countries soon.

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.

IP68 Certification And Impressive Hardware

That said, IP68 certification for AGM X1 means that the device is dust-resistant and water-resistant. The phone comes with 5.5-inch 1920×1080 Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass protection. The phone sports impressive hardware – Snapdragon Octa-core MSM8952 CPU, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and a staggering 5400mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. When it comes to camera, the phone features a decent 13MP primary camera and a 5MP rear camera. The camera makes a decent judgement about how far away the object is, picks the subject and artificially blurs the background. AGM X1 supports 4G bands: B1/B3/B7/B20.

    Can you compare with Samsung S7? I think this device is incredible and better the S7

      I Think so! I really hope that Curved display is just a transient trend … i really dont find it confortable nor durable 🙁 I prefer regular ruggeds… Why dont you try to do a really affordable and durable product, Samsung ? :S

        The amazing is that promises strength and performance as a “regular competitive smartphone” … to launch the first rugged dual camera and resistance to everything … they are really defying their style 🙂

    ITs quite impressive! Chinese products have such a stigma! Interesting at least: those Agm ruggeds of 160 euros were a lucky strike and i ll follow AGM to death xD … im feeling like i might want to invest on a X1 soon 🙂
