The Lenovo Tab M9 is a handy 9-inch tablet designed for streaming movies with Dolby Atmos audio

Your screen away from the screen.

Meet the M9, a perfectly portable and affordable little tab that’s made to escape the other screen in your life – your work laptop. The Tab M9 is a tiny, capable device with a 9-inch display and a MediaTek® Helio G80 Octa-Core processor running Android 12 (with the ability to upgrade to Android 13). It also has up to 128 GB of built-in storage, a 5100mAh battery capable of 13 hours on a full charge, and dual stereo speakers enhanced by Dolby Atmos. “When looking for some downtime away from the stressors of work and school, the Lenovo Tab M9 offers the entertainment essentials for a satisfying multi-media experience”, the company says.

The Tab M9 comes in Arctic Grey and Frost Blue, with a dual-textured metal back for a comfortable holding experience regardless of the tab’s orientation. The tablet weighs under a pound and is 7.99mm thick (making it lighter but 0.49mm thicker than the iPad Air) and comes wit the ability to be used as a standalone tab or paired with a clear folio case with a built-in kickstand.

You’ve got an 8MP camera on the back and a 2MP front-facing camera capable of face-unlock. The tablet has a USB-C port on the base which supports 15W fast charging. It also has Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 for better connectivity.

Although touted primarily as an entertainment device, the Tab M9 is well suited for reading too. It offers an immersive ‘Reading Mode’ that
simulates the color of actual book pages, allows users to soften the tone for their eyes, and even offers a selection of various ambient background sounds to choose from. “If the story gets to be too good, TÜV Rheinland eye care certification gives users the peace of mind that their eyes are protected so they can read the night away,” Lenovo says.
