In appearance, the Lenovo K9 is beautiful, stylish and contemporary. The body of the device is made of glass and metal, which is rare for budget models. On the front panel of the Lenovo K9, the bezels are non-small - both on the bottom and bottom. On this indicator, it is inferior to competitors. In recent times, at least a few devices with minimal bezels have appeared in a similar price range. Some of them even have a notch in the shape of a drop.

The smartphone has dimensions of 153.8 x 72.9 x 7.95 mm and weighs 155 grams. 


The lack of innovation in the appearance of the Lenovo K9 is not reason enough not to check out the rest of the features. This Lenovo model won't feel like a shovel in your hand. It is comfortable to carry in a pocket. The diagonal of its display is modest - 5.7 inches. The resolution does not exceed the classic 1440 x 720 pixels. 

The screen is good. Its size will appeal to users who want to see enough information, but have no pretensions to use the latest technological advances that are present in flagships. 


The glass Lenovo K9 has a slight drawback and it can be found in the Mediatek Helio P22 processor. The chip itself is not bad, which was proven by the Xiaomi Redmi 6. Given that the smartphone is in the budget class, you should expect a slight lag in responsiveness. This model is not recommended for people who want to use heavy apps and games. For everyday tasks, it is perfectly satisfactory. 

The graphics is assigned to the PowerVR Ge8320. The RAM is 3 GB LPDDR3, and the internal memory is 32 GB, and the manufacturer has provided an option to expand the memory using a card. 

Lenovo K9 works with 2 SIM cards (nano + micro).


The Lenovo K9 features two cameras. The main one is dual - 13 MP and 5 MP from Samsung, aperture f/2.2 + f/2.4, pixel 1.12 ¬Ķm. We also find phase autofocus, bokeh mode and the ability to record video in Full HD resolution at 30 frames per second.

The front camera is identical as a combination - 13 MP and 5 MP. It also supports shooting footage with bokeh effect. A bonus for selfie fans is the presence of a flash. 

Autonomous operation 

Lenovo K9 is equipped with a 3000 mAh battery capacity. Given the characteristics of the model, the user can count on a good level of autonomy.


Lenovo K9 is a perfect model for people who do not want to throw money to the wind. It will satisfy their basic needs. The device pleases with a gorgeous look, satisfactory autonomous operation, the ability to shoot with bokeh effect and has a compact size. 


  • Beautiful glass design;
  • USB Type-C;
  • Attractively low price.


  • Weak processor;¬†
  • Only 32 GB of storage.¬†
