Lenovo seemingly tries to push Xiaomi off its ”king of the budget smartphones in India” pedestal. The company has just released two new budget phones, K9 and A5, as pretty much a direct competition to Xiaomi Redmi 6 and 6A. Lenovo K9 offers a bit better specs than Redmi 6, but for the price of being slightly, well, pricier, while Lenovo A5 has slightly worse CPU than 6A but instead sports a fingerprint scanner that Redmi does not. Both phones have 18:9 display. Lenovo K9 costs ₹8,999 while Lenovo A5 costs either ₹5,999 or ₹6,999, depending on the memory variant. Both devices are Flipkart exclusives.
