Lenovo has officially announced the newest member of their entry-level K-series — the Lenovo K9.
At its price point of INR 8,999 (~Php6,600), the Lenovo K9 is set to compete with the likes of the Realme 2 and Xiaomi Redmi 6.
Even though it’s from the low-end segment, the Lenovo was still able to squeeze in a dual-camera configuration in the front and back. Both setups have 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors, which are capable of delivering bokeh pictures thanks to AI.
Lenovo K9 has a decently-sized 5.7-inch IPS 18:9 aspect ratio screen with 720p resolution. Powering the device is a MediaTek Helio P22 SoC together with 3GB of RAM and IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. For security, the company has equipped it with both a fingerprint reader and face unlock feature.

Its not competing with the Xiaomi Redmi 6A since that has a helio A22, this is competing with the Redmi 6, which has the same soc, dual cameras. The soc is energy efficient, as I have been using my Redmi 6 for a couple of weeks now, based on 12nm architecture.
Thanks for pointing that out. Updated the article. :-)
Lenovo K9 looks like a good phone. The configuration looks decent enough with 3 GB ram and 32 GB internal memory. However I think the battery could have been on the higher side. 3000 mAh is a bit low for today’s kind of usage we do with our phones.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day.
