After a long gap of about a year, Lenovo India has finally launched two new smartphones named Lenovo K9 and Lenovo A5 in the country. Both these phones were unveiled at an event held yesterday and are aimed at buyers with a tight budget. To be specific, both phones are priced under the Rs. 10,000 mark and offer features and specifications in line with the current trend except for the notch.
Starting with the Lenovo K9, it is the latest offering in one of the company's best-selling K-series. It sports a 5.7-inch HD+ FullView Display which basically means a bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it has an octa-core MediaTek P22 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It offers 32GB of internal storage with support for microSD card expansion.
The biggest highlight of the smartphone is the presence of a total of four cameras. It has a 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel dual rear camera setup and a similar dual camera setup on the front. Both these camera setups are accompanied by an LED flash which should be helpful when surrounding lights are running low.
The whole package is powered by a 3000mAh battery with a USB Type-C port and it runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. It has been released in Black and Blue color variants for a pricing of Rs. 8,999. It is available for purchase exclusively via Flipkart.
On another hand, the Lenovo A5 is strictly an entry-level smartphone with nothing fancy going on. It has a 5.45-inch HD+ display with 80.9% screen-to-body ratio. There is a MediaTek MT6739 processor coupled with 2GB or 3GB of RAM along with 16GB or 32GB internal storage. Lenovo has offered a dedicated microSD card slot for expansion so that users don't have to sacrifice the benefits of dual-SIM functionality.
In the camera department, there is a 13-megapixel camera on the back and an 8-megapixel camera on the front. There is a 4000mAh battery to keep the lights on and it is also running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The Lenovo A5 has been priced at Rs. 5,999 for the 2GB/16GB variant and Rs. 6,999 for the 3GB/32GB variant. It is also a Flipkart exclusive offering.
