The Motorola Lenovo ThinkPhone is a smartphone that is designed to look like a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop. What it sounds like is precisely what it is.
The focal point of the ThinkPhone is a 6.6-inch OLED display with a 2400x1080px resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. HDR10+ is also supported by the display.
Along with your choice of 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage, there is a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU within.
Beware, this isn’t your standard black phone—the ThinkPhone is only available in Carbon Black. It comes with a special red key that can be programmed to perform a range of tasks, such as accessing the Walkie Talkie app through Microsoft Teams or a business or field app. The back panel is constructed of lightweight aramid fiber, which some people believe to be stronger than steel, while the frame is built of aircraft-grade aluminum. The front of the device is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. A distinctive ThinkPhone logo completes the back.
Aside from being MIL-STD 810H and IP68 certified, the ThinkPhone can withstand fall up to 1.25 meters and 30-minute swims in depths up to 1.5 meters.
The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola’s 5,000mAh battery supports both 15W wireless charging and 68W wired charging. Try saying that three times quickly. The packaging contains the necessary electrical charger.
The Lenovo ThinkPhone’s 50MP f/1.8 main camera contains pixel bins that are four to one, producing 2.0 m pixels. This camera features PDAF and OIS. Next to it is a 13MP f/2.2 ultrawide with Macro Vision. On the other end is a 32MP selfie camera with autofocus.
The ThinkPhone serves a purpose beyond simple brand-building. Based on Motorola’s Ready For, it delivers true integration with Lenovo’s ThinkPad notebooks, including Think 2 Think connectivity. It enables you to drag and drop files, share notifications, sync your ThinkPhone with your ThinkPad, transfer copied text, photographs, and documents, use the phone as a webcam, and run any Android program on the Windows laptop’s screen.
Microsoft 365, Outlook, and Teams apps are included on the ThinkPhone.
It will retain PINs and passwords, cryptographic keys, and other sensitive data in a tamper-resistant setting thanks to the Moto KeySafe, a separate processor that offers an extra layer of security.
Finally, IT administrators can remotely configure the Lenovo ThinkPhone for corporate clients using Moto OEMConfig or Moto Device Manager.
In the upcoming months, the Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola will be available in the US, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia, and a few Asian nations. Lenovo hasn’t yet disclosed the cost, but since it’s a B2B product, don’t expect to find it in your neighborhood electronics shop.
