Onyx Boox C67ML with Carta Screen and 2x Storage Released

onyx boox c67ml

The Onyx Boox C67ML is a 6-inch ebook reader that runs Android 4.2.2. It first launched back in November 2014.

Now a newer version of the C67ML has just launched, and it comes with an upgraded higher contrast E Ink Carta display and twice the internal storage space, 8GB instead of 4GB.

The processor has been boosted up from 1.0GHz to 1.2GHz as well, according to the spec sheet.

The new model is available on Banggood.com, a Chinese wholesale website, for $146 with free shipping.

That’s $23 more than the original Boox C67ML with the Pearl screen and 4G of storage space, which is still available as well.

Aside from the upgraded screen, the increase in processor speed, and added storage space, all the specs and features are the same between the two models.

Back in January I reviewed the AfterGlow 2, which is a rebranded Boox C67ML. I experienced some software issues but most other reviews are positive and don’t mention the same problems.

The Boox C67ML has a lot of features going for it, including an open Android operating system that can install a bunch of reading apps. This model doesn’t come with Google Play preinstalled, but you can root the device to add it or just use alternate appstores or sideload apps.

The physical page buttons are a nice bonus feature to have too, along with the frontlight, the microSD card slot, and support for text-to-speech and audio.

Check out my AfterGlow 2 review and video walkthrough to get an idea of the advantages and disadvantages of the Boox C67ML. I wouldn’t be surprised if the AfterGlow gets re-released with the same upgrades soon, especially since it’s been unavailable for the past couple months.

  1. Is there any advantage having a dual-core processor in these devices? Are you experienced any improvement with this feature?

    • No, not really. The decrease in battery life seems to stand out more than the performance enhancement. The old school Nook Touch with a single core 800 MHz processor is just as fast if not faster than any of these dual-core Android ereaders.

  2. Great and clear answers, thanks.

  3. Could you review onyx boox c67ml vs kobo aura,pls? Tq

  4. I tried a C67ML Carta in a store. I experienced that the touchscreen is slow to react. When I clicked on an icon the reaction time was 1-2 seconds and sometimes it didn’t react at all. What is your experience?
    How does the C67ML Carta2 screen work?

    • That’s just probably how slow the operating system is and not the touchscreen. Android is generally pretty slow on E Ink ereaders.

  5. Single reviewer on Amazon complained about fragile case. What is your estimate about ruggedness, flexing of the case, etc?
