AGM is a relatively unknown manufacturer, they mainly deal with rugged phones. At this year’s exhibition, the G2 Guardian was presented, which is the current top model of the company, and therefore it has some special extras, especially the thermal camera on the back deserves attention, which offers orders of magnitude more compared to other similar phones, because it can determine the temperature from 500 meters away.
The official of the manufacturer did not reveal what kind of sensor is used for this, but we get a camera with a much narrower viewing angle, which can be used to measure the temperature of objects that are much further away. Of course, it would be worthwhile to try this in practice, but at the AGM stand there were also previous models that use roughly the same technology that we also know from CAT and Ulefone mobile phones.

AGM says that they put a thermal camera developed for hunting purposes in the phone, which is reflected in the device’s price of $929. The size of the device is also impressive, a 6.58-inch, Full HD resolution, 120 Hz IPS panel delivers the visual information, the battery is 7000 mAh, but the charging speed is only 18 watts. The top of the phone has a flashlight, and the back has a 108-megapixel main camera. The heart of the system is a Qualcomm QCM6490 chipset, which is approximately at the level of the Snapdragon 820, is manufactured at a bandwidth of 14 nm, contains eight Kyro 670 cores and an Adreno 643 GPU, has 5G and WiFi 6 also a modem.
Another interesting feature of the design is the large, 109-decibel speaker according to the manufacturer, as well as the front-facing flashlight on the top of the phone. Durability that meets IP69K and MIL-STD 810H standards is expected in this segment, the minimum 8 GB of RAM is correct, the Android 12 system is not the latest and they did not dare to promise updates in this regard, but you will receive the security packages for two years the device. We asked for a test of the phone, which will be released on March 22, and we hope that a copy will reach us.
