Lenovo has teased the launch of its new series which seems to take on the new Redmi Note 9 smartphones that Xiaomi launches in China on November 26. The Chinese company posted a teaser image on Weibo that aims to dig into Redmi. Lenovo is supposed to bring its Lemon series back to the market. The new line of affordable phones could compete with the new Redmi Note 9 models arriving in China next week.
The teaser posted on Weibo does not provide any specific details about the new Lenovo smartphone series. Nonetheless, he points to three phones with thin bezels and says “6 to come”. The company also included a tagline which, according to Google Translate, reads: “Three Swords Together”.
Interestingly, Lenovo presented its teaser just hours after Redmi released the Redmi Note 9 series invite on Weibo on Friday. The teaser is also designed in a way that it looks like a reverse Redmi invite.
Lenovo has yet to provide details on its new smartphone launch plans. However, the timing of the new teaser suggests that the company is planning to wage a fierce fight against Xiaomi’s Redmi with its new series.
It is assumed that the new phones belong to Lenovo’s Lemon series and are affordable options to attract the masses. The company was selling Lemon-branded phones in China a few years ago, although it dropped the series altogether in the recent past.
If we look at some of the recent reports, Lenovo could bring the Moto G9 Power with a rebranding under its new series of smartphones. The phone was spotted on the US FCC with model numbers XT2091-3 and XT2091-8, where the latter is believed to be the Lenovo phone.
Another Moto G9 Power variant surfaced on China’s TENAA certification website recently with a model number XT2091-7. The online listing suggests that it could come with a 6.78-inch screen and include a 5,640mAh battery. The Moto G9 Power, however, comes with a 6.8-inch display and a 6,000mAh battery. This hints at some differences between the two phones.
