A business smartphone for the harshest conditions
The new Gigaset GX290 PRO professional version is especially suitable for professions which require it to withstand adverse conditions. With its customisable, almost indestructible rugged casing—including IP68 certification and a 6.1-inch HD+ display with Gorilla® glass—it is the ideal companion on construction sites, in workshops or when performing installation work. The high power 6200-mAh battery, which supports fast wireless charging via the Qi standard, has a long battery life that easily lasts the entire working day. The GX290 PRO features ample working memory and device memory and comes with the Android Enterprise™ operating system, including zero-touch enrolment capability. Companies can also place custom GX290 PRO purchase orders via the Gigaset Business Support service.
Optimised technology for professional use
Device management with Android Enterprise™ is significantly easier with the GX290 PRO. Thanks to the addition of SOTI certification for simpler administration, and access management, zero-touch and Team Viewer compatibility, IT teams can deploy the GX290 PRO with minimal effort. The 4-GB memory ensures that performance-intensive applications running in parallel can be used without performance issues. With 64 GB of storage, there is enough space to easily accommodate all required apps and files , meaning no important data needs to be deleted. The subtle colour palette in Titanium Grey with silver accent lines blends discreetly into a professional context.
Durable exterior for tough applications
In order to withstand environmental stresses, the Gigaset GX290 PRO has a two-component TPU injection-moulded casing that is additionally reinforced by a sturdy metal frame. Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 is used for the durable display. This combination of protective glass and casing ensures that the IP68-certified GX290 PRO, which has been tested to Military Standard 810G, withstands impacts and drops onto hard surfaces with significantly less damage than conventional smartphones. What's more, it is waterproof and dustproof. Suitable for professions in which the smartphone is exposed to challenging conditions.
Business-ready performance and features
The GX290 PRO is suitable for use in an everyday professional life. The adaptive 6.1" HD+ V-notch display has a resolution of 1.560 × 720 pixels, a brightness of 580 cd/m² and a contrast ratio of 1000:1 - for the best screen visibility, even in bright sunlight. The GX290 PRO comes with Android Enterprise™ as standard, offering companies and their employees an impressive array of benefits in terms of administration and everyday professional use. The operating system runs on the MediaTek Helio P23 octa-core MT6763 - this processor has a clock rate of 2.0 GHz and supports 4G LTE at up to 150 Mbps with VoLTE and VoWiFi. This allows calls to be made directly over a high-speed internet connection with optimum sound quality - even in noisy environments.
Useful features for long hours
The lithium polymer battery has a capacity of 6.200 mAh. That's enough for a standby time of 550 hours with two SIM cards and an airtime of up to 24 hours on the 3G/4G network. The battery supports fast wireless charging with up to 15 watts and is fully charged in around three hours. In addition, the USB-C port supports quick charging via PE+ technology. As standard, the battery is charged up to just 90 percent. In doing so, the GX290 PRO stands for sustainability as part of the Gigaset Battery Save Initiative: extensive tests have shown that a smartphone's battery lifetime can be prolonged many times over if it is not fully charged on a regular basis. This feature can be deactivated at any time in the device settings if so desired.
Even more useful features on the go
USB On-The-Go turns the device into a power bank, enabling external devices to be charged or external USB devices such as a mouse, keyboard or mass storage devices to be attached to it. The back of the smartphone features a fingerprint sensor for added practicality. For example, this enables the user to scroll through screen pages with one hand, while still maintaining a secure grip of the device. The face detection function provides an additional, easy means of unlocking the smartphone. In addition, the GX290 PRO is NFC-enabled, enabling contactless payments or data transmission. Lastly, satellite navigation combining GLONASS and GPS provides reliable location data at all times.
Powerful camera as an important tool
A high-quality camera is indispensable in a working context - whether it is for documenting construction progress or for taking photos of defects that need to be corrected. The dual main camera features a 13-MP SONY sensor that is supported by a 2-MP sensor. Photos are further optimised thanks to software from the imaging technology specialist ArcSoft®, which also provides many functions familiar from professional photography such as HDR, Ultra-HD and night mode. One particular highlight is the camera's ability to recognise QR codes directly without the need for additional software.
Numerous personalisation options for companies
Different companies have different needs. Gigaset recognises and accommodates this: the GX290 PRO can be customised for corporate orders. This is made possible thanks to Gigaset's production and manufacturing facilities in Germany. Even in relatively small quantities, company logos, IMEI numbers, department names or other personalised information can be engraved on the back of the device, which can make the identification of employees with the company more visible, as well as prevent theft. In addition, the software installed can also be specified in advance if so desired. This ranges from the home screen featuring the company logo, to the selection of apps or details regarding device management, right through to the range of background images and ringtones selected (for example, the company jingle can be made an option). Companies thus have limitless flexibility when configuring the GX290 PRO. Accessories, including a screen protector, headphones and personalised packaging, can also be assembled as required.
