A couple of years ago, Lenovo was among the most relevant Chinese brands in the mid-range segment. It had a couple of competitive devices under the Lenovo Lemon aka K-series. In recent years, the company shifted its focus to Motorola-branded smartphones. Not a big surprise, since Moto phones are more successful in global markets.

Today, Lenovo released two entry-level smartphones in the Lemon series. They are the Lenovo Lemon K12 and Lenovo Lemon K12 Pro. While the former has a 699 yuan ($107) starting price, the latter starts at 899 yuan ($137).
