IFA – GIGASET launch the ME smartphone range

Hello from Berlin once again, and today a company which is known for producing home DECT telephones had decided to go ahead and release three new smartphones. The ME Pure, ME and ME Pro come to us from GIGASET.

All three of the ME smartphones are said to have “optimised hi-fi sound” and have “been built with the quality and design that GIGASET is renowned for”.


The three models are as follows, but all have sapphire-protected cameras with a 0.2-second autofocus. All models feature a high-resolution 8 megapixel front camera with an 81.5-degree wide-angle lens.

The GIGASET ME AND ME Pro have a two-tone flash whilst the ME Pure has a single colour flash. There’s also something called “Focus Later”, which is inspired by SLR tech. This means that a rapid-fire shot can be taken with 5 different focal lengths, with you choosing the best later.
