Lenovo is no longer a popular player in the smartphone market. Ever since the company acquired Motorola, it has been focussing more on that brand rather than its own due to nostalgia and brand power associated with its subsidiary. The Chinese company has now reached a certain point that it is rebranding Motorola devices as its own. The newly certified Lenovo K12 Note is nothing but a rebadged Moto G9 Play/Moto G9 (India).
According to Google Play Console, the upcoming Lenovo K12 Note is codenamed guamp. It will sport an HD+ (720 x 1600 pixels) with 280 DPI. Under the hood, it will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset and 4GB RAM. Last but not least, it will run Android 10 out of the box.
The above mentioned specs and the image included in the listing confirms that this phone is indeed a rebranded Moto G9 Play. This Motorola device debuted in late August in Europe and last week in the UK.
What’s even more interesting is that this very same Moto G9 Play handset is sold as the vanilla Moto G9 in India. That means Lenovo is selling it with three different names across the world. That said, we are not certain where the K12 Note will launch first.
A few years back, Lenovo K series smartphones were one of the best budget phones available in the market. Those devices would compete directly with Xiaomi Redmi series phones. Unfortunately, slowly and steadily, the company not only gave up on this popular series but also its entire smartphone lineup.
Back in July, Lenovo released its first gaming smartphone called Legion Duel. Sadly, it is still limited to China and the company is yet to confirm if it will ever hit global markets.
