Lenovo has just announced its latest budget-friendly tablet, the Tab M9. It’s the successor to last year’s Tab M8 and has received some major upgrades in all the right places. So let’s get into the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Lenovo Tab M9 in Nepal. 

Lenovo Tab M9 Overview:

Design and Display

To begin with, the Lenovo Tab M9 boasts a 9-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 800 x 1340 pixels; an increase in size and resolution compared to the previous model, the Tab M8. The screen’s peak brightness has also been raised from 350 nits to 400 nits. However, the bezels around the screen are still fairly thick. The tablet will be available in Arctic Grey and Frost Blue, both with a two-tone back panel.

Performance 

Powering the tablet is a MediaTek Helio G80 SoC which is a significant improvement over the Helio A22 in Tab M8. Lenovo has also improved the memory protocol, switching from LPDDR3 to LPDDR4X from the previous model. While storage remains unchanged at eMMC 5.1. You can choose the tablet with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. 

Likewise, the device gets its juice from a 5100mAh battery that charges via a 10W USB-C adapter. Lenovo claims that the Tab M9 is good for up to thirteen hours of video playback. 

Rest of the specs

For your camera needs, the company has included an 8 MP sensor on the back which supports autofocus, by the way. And there is a 2 MP shooter on the front for video chats. 

Furthermore, because the Helio G80 is a 4G SoC, cellular connectivity is limited to LTE. Other wireless connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.1, and GPS. Thankfully, Lenovo has included a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot, both of which are essential for a low-cost tablet.
