PTCL has launched a new Charji EVO LTE Tablet in Pakistan and offers quite a lot of free goodies that make it good value for money. The tablet is capable of utilising the current PTCL CharJi network and achieve theoretical speeds of up to 36Mbps.
The CharJi Evo LTE Tab comes with a 7-inch HD screen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The tablet’s design is quite similar to the Galaxy S3 and not like the previous 3G Evo tab which used to have huge bezels.
It’s powered by a Snapdragon quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM. The built-in storage comes at 16GB which is expandable via microSD card of up to 64GB. The tablet comes with Dual-SIM capability where one of the sims is dedicated to PTCL CharJi while the second sim can be used for normal GSM networks. There’s no mention of whether the second SIM supports 3G or 4G GSM networks. The tablet can work as a normal mobile phone and make calls and send text messages.
The tablet comes with a duo of cameras. The front camera is a 2-megapixel unit while the rear camera comes at 8 megapixels. The tablet supports GPS car navigation as well. The tablet is powered by a 3,300 mAh battery under the hood.
