Now in the Tablet segment the company has introduced two low cost 4G enabled Tablets – Celkon Diamond 4G Tab 7 and Celkon Diamond 4G Tab 8. Before we take a closer look at Celkon’s 4G strategy let’s go through the specifications on these 2 Tablets.
Specifications – Celkon Diamond 4G Tab 7
The Celkon Diamond 4G tab 7 has a capacitive 7 inch display with a screen resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. The Tablet comes with the 1.3 GHz Quad Core Cortex A53 processor with a 1 GB RAM to boot. The Tablet has an internal storage of 8 GB which is expandable up to 32 GB via a microSD card slot.
The primary camera on the Diamond 4G Tab 7 is a 3.2 megapixel unit with LED flash, while the secondary camera is a 1.3 megapixel unit. The 4G enabled Tablet also has Hotspot and OTG as connectivity options. The battery capacity on the Celkon Diamond 4G Tab 7 is 3000 mAh and despite its form factor the Tablet weighs a mere 270 grams.
The Tablet is powered by Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and the gravity sensor famously known as the G-sensor.
Celkon Diamond 4G Tab 8
While a majority of specifications on the Diamond 4G Tab 8 will match those on the Diamond 4G Tab 7 there are a few enhancements worth taking note of.

The obvious and important one is the display of this Tablet. The Diamond 4G Tab 8 has an 8 inch IPS display with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The IPS display is certainly an improvement over its smaller cousin. The Diamond 4G Tab 8 gets a little bulkier and weighs 380 grams. The only other noticeable enhancement in this Tablet over its smaller variant is the battery capacity.
The Diamond 4G Tab 8 comes with a 4000 mAh battery which means it will allow you to surf the internet using its 4G connectivity a lot longer than the Diamond 4G Tab 7 can.
Celkon has woken up to the challenge of 4G connectivity
Indian smartphone brands such as Micromax and Intex have already expressed an open desire to pursue the 4G strategy. These brands have launched a plethora of 4G enabled devices and it seems Celkon has taken a cue from its more fancied rivals and is now slowly but surely moving towards a product portfolio that will have 4G at its core.

While it is not new for smartphone brands worldwide to offer 4G phones in markets like Indian and Brazil the 4G wave has only just begun to take off. One can argue that on a global scale brands and consumers are gearing up to welcome 5G into their homes and businesses but the fact remains that this proliferation of fast internet accessibility depends largely on a region’s economic well-being.
For emerging markets like India 4G will be the key tech to adopt for smartphone brands and consumers while the market continues to mature in 2016.
