Editor: Margrit Lingner
With the GX290 Plus and the GX290 Pro, Gigaset is launching two new, hard-wearing smartphones. The tough mobile phones are IP68 certified and should allow talk times of up to 24 hours thanks to the 6,200 mAh battery.
Companies on the topic
The manufacturer has given both mobile phones performance. While the GX290 Plus is also intended to appeal to outdoor athletes, the Pro version is designed for professional use and offers an extended support period for security updates and administration options for several mobile device management systems.
The two indestructible smartphones are powered by a MediaTek Helio P23 Octa-Core MT6763 processor. It clocks at 2 GHz, masters 4G LTE with up to 150 Mbit / s and supports the connection standards VoLTE and VoWiFi.
Is further installed a dual main camera with a 13-MP sensor from Sony, which is supported by a 2-MP sensor. Photo functions such as HDR, Ultra HD and night mode are also on board.
The GX290 Plus is supposed to offer more sustainability. After all, tests have shown that the life of a smartphone battery can be extended many times over if it is not fully charged on a regular basis. If desired, the feature can be deactivated at any time in the device settings.
In order to make the robust mobile phones even more secure, Gigaset has raised the surrounding display frame slightly. An optionally applied screen protector should provide better protection against falls.
