Manufacturer AGM specializes in building phones that can take a beating — from accessible feature phones to smartphones that pack competitive hardware, all of its devices are covered in solid, rugged guardian shells.

With the 5G era coming towards us at full speed, AGM is ready to meet it with the AGM X5 — a 6.5-inch, rugged beast with 5G connectivity. Exclusive to China on launch, but it will be available globally in 2021.

Can’t wait? Need a rugged phone now? Well, as luck would have it, AGM also has a number of promotions lined up this November. The best discounts will be available on November 11th and 12th, which is when you should swing by an online retailer of choice and look for AGM-branded phones.

Here’s an official store to get you started:

Here’s a quick guide and refresher on what AGM’s portfolio has to offer:


The AGM A9 is the most popular AGM model thanks to its massive 5,400 mAh battery and quad, JBL-tuned speakers. On the inside, it’s a midranger with a Snapdragon 450 processor, 32 GB of storage, and 4 GB of RAM. But it does offer all the essentials you need on a smartphone, including a fingerprint scanner, a 12 MP Sony sensor on the main camera, and a 16 MP selfie shooter. At a very aggressive price point at that!


An entry-level rugged smartphone with a very specific feature — a large front-facing speaker, placed there for professionals who need to communicate in a “walkie talkie” style more often than others. The A10 has a 4,400 mAh battery and an extremely energy-efficient quad-core chip, which makes sure it’ll last for quite a while. And, with these phones for professionals — that’s what’s often needed.


A feature phone with an aggressive, Batman-like look that can definitely take more than one fall. The M2’s large battery is actually removable, its large buttons are easy to press, and its front-facing LED torch can help you out when in a dark pinch. Catch it during the November promo and it’ll only cost you $30!
