We loved the sturdy ones AGM Glory Pro (Opens in a new tab) Smartphones with 4.5 stars in our reviews-it’s very distinctive in our guide The best rugged phone,and Best thermal image camera, that too. So it’s nice to see AGM release this rugged smartphone update in the form of the Glory G1S. It comes with a more affordable $ 699.99 price tag.
The AGM Glory G1S is touted as a rugged smartphone that can be carried anywhere, with high-resolution thermal images, night-vision technology, and military standard-certified MIL-STD-810H for use in rugged terrain and extreme conditions. And obviously it’s up to the job.
However, let’s make it clear that this is an AGM Glory Pro update, not a direct upgrade. AGM will knock out $ 200 from RRP and offer new services to a much larger audience that may expand from search and rescue, construction. For adventurers and extreme sports enthusiasts such as workers, plumbers and firefighters.
AGM Glory G1S: Specifications
The G1S replaces the heavy and inconvenient thermal imaging equipment with advanced 5G smartphones with advanced thermal imaging technology. Equipped with 40,000 sensors, cinema-quality 25FPS and 20MPIR night-vision capabilities deliver faster, crisper, thermal 256×192 high-resolution images.
The IR night vision camera is courtesy of the Sony IMX 350 with 20MP resolution with one infrared LED, and the thermal camera has a resolution of 256×192 at a rate of 25fps.
As for cameras, there is a 48MP Sony main camera and a 2MP secondary camera with a 16MP front facer. It has the same 6.53-inch LTPSTFT LCD screen found on the AGMGlory Pro.
Equipped with the same Snapdragon 480 chip as Glory Pro, the Glory G1S is also MIL-STD-810H certified for water, dust and shock protection. It also has an IP68 / IP69K rating and is 100% waterproof. According to AGM, it can be submerged to less than 1.5 meters for more than 30 minutes.

AGMGlory G1S and AGMGlory Pro
So how do these specifications differ from those of AGM Glory Pro? The main difference other than the price cut is that the Glory G1S is 1.15% lighter. This is probably due to the lack of a 5500mAh battery and wireless charging compared to Glory Pro’s huge 6200mAh battery. You can also see storage downgrades as the Glory Pro is 256GB and the Glory G1S is 128GB. The Glory G1S corner comes with a strap eyelet that appeals to the target consumer group, something Glory Pro didn’t have.

AGM Glory G1S is available immediately from the company itself or via Amazon. Priced at $ 699.99, we recommend compatibility with T-Mobile services in the United States.
