The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola is here, and it’s exactly what it sounds like – a Motorola-made smartphone that looks like a Lenovo ThinkPad notebook. The ThinkPhone is based on a 6.6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. HDR10+ support is also on board.
Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola with Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1
It is powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset paired with 8 or 12 GB of RAM. There is also 128, 256 or 512 GB of storage. The only color option is carbon black, but there is a special red button that can be customized. For example, you can use it to open the Microsoft Teams Walkie Talkie app or a business app. The back is made from a lightweight aramid fiber which is said to be stronger than steel, the frame is made from aircraft grade aluminum and the front is Gorilla Glass Victus. There is also a ThinkPhone logo on the case.
The phone is IP68 and MIL-STD 810H certified, so it can withstand a drop of up to 1.25 meters and submersion of up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola has a 5,000 mAh battery with 68 watts of wired charging and 15 watts of wireless charging. The matching wired charger is part of the scope of delivery.
50 MP main camera with OIS, 32 MP selfie camera with autofocus
The main camera of the Lenovo ThinkPhone has a resolution of 50 megapixels and an aperture of f/1.8. After a 4-in-1 binning, 2.0μm pixels come together and there is both PDAF and OIS. In addition, a 13 megapixel f/2.2 ultra wide with Macro Vision is installed on the back. The 32-megapixel selfie camera on the front has autofocus.
The ThinkPhone offers true integration with Lenovo’s ThinkPad laptops. It also includes Think 2 Think connectivity based on Motorola’s Ready For system. You can sync your ThinkPhone with your ThinkPad and transfer copied text, photos, documents, and drag-and-drop files. Sharing notifications, using the phone as a webcam and opening any Android app on the ThinkPad display is also possible.
The ThinkPhone comes with Microsoft 365, Outlook and Teams apps pre-installed. The Moto KeySafe is a separate processor that adds a layer of security. It keeps PINs and passwords, crypto keys and other sensitive data in a tamper-proof environment. Finally, Moto OEMConfig or Moto Device Manager allow IT administrators to remotely configure the Lenovo ThinkPhone for business customers.
The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola is coming to the US, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia and select Asian countries in the coming months. Lenovo has not yet announced the price. But since it’s a B2B device, it probably won’t end up in the electronics store around the corner.
