Yesterday, Redmi took to Weibo to confirm that it will be launching the Redmi Note 9 5G series on Nov. 26 in China. The lineup includes two 5G-enabled smartphones and a 4G phone. Soon after Redmi’s announcement, Lenovo teased the arrival of new phones through its Weibo handle.
Yesterday, Redmi teased the Note 9 series’ arrival with the “Three Swords Together” tagline. The machine-translated text of the Weibo post by Lenovo reads, “Where there are people, there are rivers and lakes. Three swords in one? Or is it a 6-blade sheath? If you want to compete with the rivers and lakes, meet on high.“ It appears Lenovo will be rivaling the Note 9 series with its upcoming smartphones. Lenovo’s teaser poster reads “6 Coming” and it shows three handsets with a bezel-less design.
A few years, Lenovo used to sell Lemon-branded midrange phones. However, with increased competition from other brands, Lemon phones gradually started disappearing from the market. Recently, Lenovo confirmed that it will once again release Lemon smartphones in China. There is a possibility that Lemons could be a rebranded edition of Motorola phones that are available in other markets.
Lenovo’s General Manager for Mobile Business Department Chen Jin had recently said in an interview that Lenovo and Motorola will position their products differently. Motorola will release mid-to-high smartphones and Legion brand will have performance-driven smartphones. The entry-level smartphone will receive Lemon-branded phones.
Before the launch of the Moto G9 Power, it was spotted with XT2091 model number at the FCC certification platform. The listing revealed that the XT2091-3 variant has Motorola branding, whereas the XT2091-8 is a Lenovo phone.
A new phone with XT2091-7 model number has surfaced in the database of China’s TENAA telecom authority. The preliminary listing at TENAA reveals that the handset measures 172 x 76.7 x 9.6mm and it has a 6.78-inch display. The device houses a 5,640mAh battery. The dimensions and display of the phone are similar to the Moto G9 Power, but its battery size differs slightly. Probably, a slightly modified version of the Moto G9 Power could be coming to China as a Lemon series phone.
