The past few weeks have been full of leaks pointing to the launch of a Motorola ThinkPhone. As the name suggests, the device would represent the iconic Lenovo business-grade laptop in the smartphone segment. Motorola finally took the wraps off this device, and the name is more mouthful than what we have been expecting. The device carries Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola title. Apart from this mouthful name, the device is everything we have been expecting. It’s a business-grade smartphone, with the design of the Lenovo ThinkPad laptop series, and flagship specs.

Gizchina News of the week
The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola brings a huge 5,000 mAh battery with 68W fast charging. It’s not the fastest standard from Motorola but is still fast enough. On top of that, we also have 15W wireless charging. In terms of optics, the Lenovo ThinkPhone packs a 50 MP main camera with PDAF and OIS. There is also a 13 MP ultrawide sensor that doubles as a Macro shooter. For selfies and vide-calls, we have a 32 MP camera with autofocus.
The device also brings the Moto KeySafe as a separate processor. It adds a new layer of security keeping PINs, Passwords, Crypto Keys, and other data.
Obviously, Lenovo won’t miss the opportunity to integrate a ThinkPhone with the ThinkPad series. It brings Think 2 Think connectivity, based on Motorola’s Ready For. It allows you to sync the ThinkPhone to your ThinkPad and transfer copied text, photos, and documents, as well as drag and drop files. You can also share notifications, use the phone as a webcam, and open any Android app on the Windows laptop’s screen.
Worth noting, that Microsoft is taking a ride in this laptop to offer its apps and services. The handset comes with Microsoft 365, Outlook, and Team apps. The device runs Android 13 and also comes with a ton of exclusive Moto features. We have Moto OEMconfig and Device Manager allowing IT admins to configure the device remotely for business clients.
The device will sell in the US, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia, and some Asian countries. The price remains a mystery, but it’s a B2B device. So, regular users will not easily find one for sale.
