We have a new brand in the smartphone to look at – Gigaset. For those unaware, Gigaset Communications is a brand from Germany, and it’s the former division of Siemens. Now, it has a set of mid-range and rugged smartphones. Gigaset is trying to push its name forward in the international market. Today, the company is launching a new product dubbed Gigaset GS5. It’s a new mid-range smartphone with a curved design and flush rear cameras. One of the device’s biggest highlights is a removable 4,500 mAh battery.
If removable batteries were a standard a few years ago, nowadays, they are almost gone. Sometimes, one brand comes with this concept all of a sudden. Today, it’s Gigaset GS5 that is bringing this technology back, and the size is very good. Removable batteries are very easy to replace if one becomes defective, and you can also swap batteries if necessary or if you have one charged. Unfortunately, nowadays, smartphone brands have chosen to leave this behind for unibody designs.
Gigaset GS5 specifications
Getting back to the point, the Gigaset GS5 comes with mid-range specifications. It has a 6.3-inch LCD screen with a Waterdrop notch and a Full HD+ resolution. The cutout serves as a home for the 16 MP selfie camera. Under the hood, we have the MediaTek Helio G85 SoC. The Helio G85 SoC carries two ARM Cortex-A75 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8 GHz. It is paired with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Internal Storage. If you need more storage, you can use a micro SD to expand it.
The device comes with a dual-camera setup. However, it’s quite useful with a 48 MP main camera and an 8 MP ultrawide snapper, and LED flash. The device also has a capacitive fingerprint scanner. The device runs Android 11 out of the box. However, Gigaset is ensuring that users will receive an upgrade to Android 12 down to the line. The phone also has a triple-slot for two and a micro SD card, NFC, and a headphone jack.
The Gigaset GS5 comes with Dark Titanium Grey and Light Purple Colors. The device comes with €299. Details about availability are yet to be revealed. We know that the device will be available in Germany. Time will tell if the brand will push the Gigaset brand forward as it did in the days of Siemens.
