New /e/-GS290 - Made in Germany!

Welcome to the Gigaset GS290

We are pleased to announce that we have completed porting /e/OS to the Gigaset GS290!

If you don’t know Gigaset, this company has been manufacturing communication products since 1941 and is most likely one of the last European brand producing its phones in their own facility, located in Bocholt, Germany.

We believe that the “Made in Germany” quality seal along with /e/OS will be a winning combination.

The GS290 boasts an extra-large display: 6.3″, 19.5:9 FHD + V-notch display, a powerful octa-core processor with 4G LTE, a high-resolution 16-MP + 2-MP dual camera and a long-lasting 4700-mAh lithium polymer battery with fast charging.

If you are interested in buying an /e/-GS290, let us know, we might have something coming up for you…


Sounds interesting, in spite of the lack of a replaceable battery… I’ll try to compare in detail with Fairphone for Christmas :slight_smile:

Yes it will be available on eShop.


Will it work on the GX290, too?

there is Mediatek inside.
I strictly avoid devices containing Mediatek due to the lack of support for custom roms

The build we are porting is specifically for the GS290. May not work on other models. Most probably will brick other versions.
