We’ve all seen those ludicrously expensive gold plated smartphones, but having gold bling needn’t mean a silly price tag.
Back in the early days of the humble mobile if you wanted a handset with all the bling you would probably go for a Vertu phone. It wouldn’t necessarily be any better than a phone for 1/1000th of the cost, but it would be made of luxury materials including leather, titanium and even gold.
These days things are a little more advanced and it’s not too uncommon to see gold plated iPhones, and even some manufacturers (Huawei for example) even offer special edition premium versions of flagship handsets to tempt luxury goods shoppers.
If you’ve ever looked at all that gold and fancied being part of the jet set, but haven’t had the cash to do it then this limited edition AGM X1 is the phone for you.
AGM has taken it’s successful X1 rugged Android smartphone and given it an 18K makeover, plating certain parts of the phone with the fancy material.
The gold highlights really do contrast against the rugged black body of the phone, and in our view the overall aesthetic is rather good.
What’s very interesting about the AGM X1 is that this rugged phone isn’t just about the gold bling, the handset is also the first IP68 rugged phone with dual rear camera, plus it packs a powerful performance package made up of a Snapdragon 617 and 4GB RAM.
AGM will be offering the X1 limited edition from today until 17th May and if you act fast you’ll save $30 bring the price of the 18K gold phone down to only $269.99. Visit Aliexpress or Coolicool to order one today.
