A larger surface area means an impressive display: V-notch display for optimum viewing experience
Gigaset GS290 - the smartphone that brings you unlimited freedom. With a diagonal screen measurement of 16 cm, the 6.3" FHD+ V-notch display gives you all the space you need. Browse through your photo albums and relive your best moments. Or kill time on your commute with movies and TV series in Full HD quality with a resolution of 2340 x 1080p. The V-notch provides an almost unrestricted display, letting you keep track of everything - even when you're using multiple apps at the same time. Plus the scratch-resistant and dirt-repellent 2.5D glass protects your screen, making sure you always get the best view.
Optimum performance without compromise: the Helio P23 processor
Multitasking? No problem! The Helio P23 processor with octa-core architecture ensures a top performance and smooth operation while saving power. Run multiple applications simultaneously and easily store large amounts of data with 4-GB RAM and 64-GB ROM (expandable to 256 GB). The intelligent processor is also great when making calls: Enjoy faster connections for "Voice over WiFi" (VoWiFi)* and "Voice over LTE" (VoLTE)* calls, plus outstanding voice quality.
One camera, numerous features: Capture unforgettable moments in amazing quality
A 16 + 2-MP dual main camera and a 16-MP front camera will already give you great-looking photos, but the Gigaset GS290 does even more. Advanced ArcSoft® image fusion algorithms improve the image quality of your photos and videos, while additional optional features add a unique touch to each photo. Use the bokeh effect for variable background focus to get impressive portraits. In different lighting conditions, the HDR mode adjusts the brightness of the shadowy areas, so your photos come out great even when taken against harsh backlight. Night mode reduces noise and optimises lighting for captivating night-time scenes. Use Professional mode to capture photos that rival the most experienced of photographers: Adjust brightness, focus or colour balance to achieve unique results.
Charge less, use for longer: Long-lasting battery with power-saving technology
As efficient as it is convenient - with a long-lasting 4700-mAh battery, your Gigaset GS290 is in it for the long haul. What does that mean for you? 34 hours of music playback or 8 hours of video playback. Plus 8 hours of talk time. All this is possible thanks to the advanced power-saving system: When the battery detects low capacity, it immediately enters low power mode. This energy-efficient battery management means you can use your smartphone for hours without constantly thinking about charging.
Two options for a perfect charge: MediaTek PE+ technology and wireless charging
Charge your Gigaset GS290 at lightning speeds with the standard charging cable thanks to MediaTek Pump Express+ technology (PE+), or simply use an inductive charging station for wireless charging. Stop wasting time searching for the right cable and simply place your smartphone on the corresponding charging point. This means you can stay mobile wherever you go, for as long as you like. Plus, you can use the same built-in technology - called NFC (Near Field Communication) - to make payments using your smartphone, even when you travel. Perfect when you're on the go: USB On-The-Go (OTG) technology turns your GS290 into a power bank, so you can charge external devices using your smartphone.
Easy to use, double the security: unlock using face recognition and fingerprint scanning
Whether you've got private family photos or personal information from online banking and travel documents, your data will always be safe from prying eyes. You can choose to protect your GS290 with smart face recognition or with the fingerprint sensor. Plus, you can use your fingerprint for many other functions, such as taking pictures or answering calls. With five different fingerprint profiles, you can put the power in your fingertips. No matter how you choose to unlock your phone, it is guaranteed to be safe, fast and convenient.
Two phone numbers, one device: dual SIM for more flexibility in everyday life
Those who travel a lot love the convenience of being able to manage two phone numbers simultaneously. And Gigaset GS290 makes it simple! The dual card slot allows you to easily use your private and local SIM cards in the same device, for instance while travelling - ideal for an uncomplicated and active lifestyle. Or, you can use the second slot in the dual SIM tray for an additional memory card. This will give you plenty of space to store even more photos, music or videos.
Even smarter, even faster: Android™ 10
With Android™ 10, Google is introducing a system-wide dark mode that is pleasant for the eyes and also saves power in the smartphone battery. The gesture control now gets by completely without buttons. Wiping movements from the left or right edge of the screen replace the back button. Face recognition has also been improved. Furthermore, about 50 new security functions have been implemented, which can be found prominently in a separate privacy section in the settings. A completely new setting option regulates location access: access to an app can be limited to a certain period of use, and when the app is not in use, it cannot query the location in the background. Another exciting feature is the Family Link, which helps parents to better monitor their children's smartphone usage.
Two colours, one stylish phone: a stylish look for your Gigaset GS290
Available in Pearl White or Titanium Grey, choose from two stylish colours to make your Gigaset GS290 stand out from the crowd. Which colour suits you best? The striking combination of classic white and softly shimmering rainbow effect gives the sparkling pearl white model a special touch. Or if you prefer classic and understated, the elegant gloss effect of the Titanium Grey is perfect for you. For even more individuality, personalise your Gigaset smartphone with a name engraving** - in Gigaset's exclusive font, with a maximum of 26 characters and for an extra charge of EUR 5.00, you can add a personal touch to your device.
The new GS290 - "Made in Germany"
Gigaset is the only company in the world that produces smartphones in Germany. This is significant, and only logical given that we have now been producing modern telecommunication solutions at our production site in Bocholt for seven decades. Digitalisation has made people more mobile - at Gigaset we offer the right end devices for how we communicate today, and we will continue to offer the right end devices for however we communicate tomorrow. As true communications technology professionals, we draw on our core competencies to create great smartphones with advanced features, high quality standards and superior design. The proof? The new GS290, one of many Gigaset smartphones manufactured in Germany.
The environment is important to us
At Gigaset, we deal extensively with the issue of sustainability - starting with the recycling of production materials and extending to technological innovations and logistical processes. The Gigaset GS290, for example, is delivered in packaging made of recyclable and compostable grass fibres. This raw material regrows rapidly and is obtained from local sources. It produces significantly lower CO2 emissions while also using much less water and energy during production. Furthermore, aside from the adhesive film for protecting the display, we have completely eliminated plastic from the inner packaging. This is only the first step on a long road towards more sustainable production. That's why every day we work on sustainable concepts for our common future.
