Munich, December 1st, 2017 - This August, Gigaset presented the GS270, a new 5.2” full-HD smartphone in the mid-range price segment. The “Battery Monster”, as the press recently named the phone that is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery and an octa-core processor, has been complemented by a special edition in the color “Racing Red”.
“Racing Red” puts color into life
“We experimented with colors even when planning the GS270. One variant that we felt was especially strong and thus underscores the power of the smartphone’s interior was red,” says Andreas Merker, Head of Mobile Devices at Gigaset. “The color is also totally in vogue, not only at Christmas. A red smartphone is simply an eye-catcher and the GS270 with its slightly shimmering metallic effect lacquer imparts a special flair compared to conventional color ranges.”
Unlike other manufacturers, who also presented red models and usually offered them at higher prices than those in standard colors, Gigaset makes no distinction. The new special edition of the GS270 in “Racing Red”, combined with a particularly high-quality Gigaset logo in brilliant chrome on the rear, is now on sale at the recommended retail price of €199.
Gigaset GS270 – the budget killer is also speedy on the move
The key features of the GS270 are the 5.2” full-HD IPS display and huge 5,000 mAh lithium-ion battery, which easily permits the phone to be used normally for several days without being recharged or in standby for five weeks . Fast-charge technology recharges the battery with 5V/2A within a short time, while full charging takes less than four hours. A further expedient feature with such a powerful battery: USB On-The-Go technology. It allows USB devices such as keyboards or hard disks to be connected directly along with their power supply.
The performance of the Android 7.0 smartphone is fast and smooth thanks to the octa-core 1.5 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM. The internal 16 GB memory can be increased by up to another 128 GB with a microSD card.
The 13-megapixel camera offers a fast auto focus function and 5 lenses with an f/2.2 aperture. The front camera has a resolution of five megapixels. Relax and enjoy photos and videos at home and on the move on the 5.2” full-HD display.
Thanks to its elegant and stylish design with curved 2.5D anti-smudge glass on the front and a high-quality metallic effect finish in “Racing Red” on the back, the smartphone not only looks good but is also especially pleasant to hold.
The GS270 plus is rounded out by a raft of innovative technologies, from a dual-SIM microSD setup, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, WLAN with 2.4 and 5 Ghz, 4G LTE with CAT6, VoLTE and VoWiFi to the multifunction fingerprint sensor and various smart features.
