The Lenovo ThinkPhone is under the Lenovo brand but it is manufactured by Motorola. This is understandable as at the moment, Motorola has more experience in the smartphone market.
The Lenovo ThinkPhone is a full-fledged flagship as the company advertises it as a Business-grade upgrade.
In this article, I’ll share everything you need to know about the Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola, a phone for businesses.
Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola Features
As the name suggests, the Lenovo ThinkPhone looks like the Lenovo ThinkPad laptop. It also has some software features that make them a pair to work with.
Being a flagship, the phone has a very premium build. It has an aluminum frame with a rear panel made from aramid fiber which is stronger than steel.
It complies with the MIL-STD-810H standards and it is drop resistant from up to 1.3 meters. IP68 certification is also available so the phone is resistant to dust and water.
Upfront, the Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola is built around a 6.6-inch P-OLED display that has an FHD+ resolution with a 144Hz refresh rate. The display supports HDR10+, and it uses a 10-bit panel which makes it show up to 1 billion colors. The screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
Beneath the screen, there is an optical fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication. There is also a special red key on the side that you can customize to do different tasks.
As for software, the phone runs on the latest Android 13 OS. I expect Lenovo to commit to at least two years of major Android software updates. Away from Android, the phone comes with Microsoft 365, Outlook, and Teams apps preloaded.
On the inside, the ThinkPhone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 coupled with the Adreno 730 GPU. The phone is available with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
There is a triple rear camera setup and a single selfie camera tucked in a tiny punch-hole cutout at the top center.
The rear camera has a 50MP f/1.8 main camera with PDAF and OIS. It uses 4-to-1 pixel binning resulting in 2.0μm pixels. The main camera is coupled with a 13MP f/2.2 ultrawide camera and a depth camera. The ultrawide camera has Auto Focus so it doubles as a macro camera for close-up shots.
The selfie has a 32MP camera sensor with autofocus.
For video recording, the rear camera tops out at 8K resolution at 30 fps while the selfie camera maxes out at 4K resolution at 30 fps.
The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola has a 5,000 mAh battery. It supports 68W wired charging and 15W wireless charging. It also comes with the required fast-wired charger in the box.
The ThinkPhone has support for 5G connectivity, it comes with tri-band Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, and USB-C 3.1 OTG.
Some unique features that the Lenovo ThinkPhone brings are Think 2 Think, Moto KeySafe, and Moto Device Manager.
The first allows you to fully integrate the ThinkPhone with a ThinkPad. It lets you sync the phone to a ThinkPad, share files, use the phone as a webcam, open an app on the laptop’s screen, share notifications, and transfer text, documents, and photos.
The second is a special security processor that keeps PINs, passwords, and other sensitive data in a tamper-resistant environment.
The third lets IT admins remotely configure a Lenovo ThinkPhone for their organization.
