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).
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 in the future.
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. The tablet should also get security updates for at least three years.
