Gigaset has introduced the GS195, a new Android smartphone for the middle class, which is manufactured like the GS185 in Germany at Bocholt. It is the first Gigaset smartphone with glass back, which can be personalized with a personal engraving. Also new are the GS110 for beginners and the GS190 of the middle class.
Just like the production of Gigaset in Bocholt, ComputerBase looked at the launch of the GS185, Gigaset's last smartphone made in Germany, almost exactly one year ago. When manufacturing in Germany, customers have the option to engrave the glass back of the smartphone on request for 5 euros extra charge. The suggested retail price of the GS195 is 199 Euro.
LED flash for selfies
The smartphone comes with broad Notch in the style of Apple's iPhone and brings in the next to the speaker to phone a selfie camera with 8 megapixels including LED flash under. The Notch surrounds a 6.18 inch display with Full HD Plus resolution, which terminates at the bottom with a short “chin”. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back, where vertically a dual camera with 13 and 5 megapixels is installed, which can be used for bokeh effects.
The SoC uses the 28 nm Spreadtrum SC9863A, which features two differently-clocked Cortex-A55 clusters. With 32 GB of memory and microSD option, the GS195 offers the largest memory of the three new models. The RAM is 2 GB. The smartphone supports VoLTE and VoWiFi and should offer a particularly high voice quality.
SoC from 12 nm production
A class under the GS195 plays the GS190, which calls Gigaset as a price-performance professional, whereby the price is with 169 euro. The design of the smartphone is very similar to the GS195, but the wide Notch with LED flash is missing, replaced by a small drop notch. The resolution of the almost equal size display is lower, and the SoC only has four cores. But the MediaTek Helio A22 comes from the much more modern 12 nm production.
Beginners for 119 euros
At 119 euros, the GS110 comes as a new entry-level smartphone family from Gigaset. Here, the SoC changes back to the Spreadtrum SC9863A of the GS195, but RAM and memory are smaller. The resolution of the display has been reduced again, also was saved in direct comparison with camera and battery. Even with the USB connection must be accepted with the waiver of type C an older standard.
Android 9.0 Pie without adjustments
All three new smartphones are running with an unchanged version of Android 9.0 Pie, which only adds Gigaset to its own wallpapers. GS195 and GS110 can already be found in the online shop of Gigaset, the GS190 will follow shortly.
