The Lenovo Tab M9 is an affordable Android tablet with a 9 inch HD+ display, a MediaTek Helio G80 processor, and up to 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (although entry-level models have less of each).
Coming in the second quarter of 2023 for $140 and up, it’s the latest addition to Lenovo’s ever-growing line of budget and mid-range Android tablets.
On paper, the tablet looks like it offers decent bang for the buck. Its cameras are nothing to write home about and it lacks some advanced features like a fingerprint reader, NFC, or WiFi 6. But it supports face unlock, Dolby Atmos sound, WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 support, and Lenovo says some models will be available with 4G LTE.
The Lenovo Tab M9 will ship with Android 12 software, but the company says it will make an Android 13 update available in the future.
