Almost ten years have passed since Siemens Mobile disappeared leaving rivers of nostalgia in their wake, as the telephone division of the German company Siemens had been a pioneer in this field for several years and with several major mobile phones.
Not surprisingly, Siemens was behind terminals such as the SL10 -the first telephone with a sliding keyboard back in 1999-, the SL45 -the first telephone with an MMC card reader, Java applications and an mp3 player- and an SX1 that remained as its first smartphone and last great banner, and that is still in my drawer with Symbian OS and a strange design that we could describe as “modernist”, but very attractive for the time back in 2003.
Leaving the past behind and after the sale of its mobile division to BenQ, it seems that Siemens wants to return to the smartphone market, and also if all the rumors are true, he will return through the front door next week, presenting a high-performance Android smartphone at IFA 2015.
Its about Siemens Gigaset (GS55-6), a smartphone of unspecified size with an attractive, minimalist and elegant design with a touch similar to the Nubia Z9, built around a metal chassis with almost zero side frames.
On the hardware side, a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 It will act as the heart with its eight-core processor in big.LITTLE architecture -4x 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x 1.8 GHz Cortex-A57- and an Adreno 430 GPU, accompanied by 3 GB of RAM.
Its screen does not specify diagonal but it does specify resolution, which it will be FullHD 1080p, a very logical option to maximize the relationship between price and performance without the need for numerical bragging.
A 32 GB internal memory completes the platform, where a 16 megapixel main camera and another front of 8 MP. However, we do not have more details about its battery, memory expansion, etc.
The customization that Siemens will choose for Android 5.1 Lollipop, details all of them that will wait for their official presentation during the fair in Berlin. Good news without a doubt, Didn’t you miss Siemens in the Android catalog?
