For quite a long time of ownership of Motorola, Lenovo almost did not “mix” brands in joint developments. But that could change pretty soon. Moreover, in the business category of the ThinkPad/ThinkBook manufacturer, which mainly consists of computers and their accessories, this symbiosis may appear in the form of a smartphone — ThinkPhone by Motorola.
Images and characteristics of such a gadget appeared on the Web. In addition to the name, they have a clear image of the smartphone with a carbon body and a matching logo. In fact, it looks very much in the style of the top devices of the line and will quite harmoniously complement the technical equipment of laptop owners of the brand.
The dimensions of ThinkPhone will be 158.76×74.38×8.26 mm with a weight of 183 grams. At the same time, the rear part will have a carbon coating (or something stylized for it), and the sides will be aluminum. In addition, the case will be protected against water and dust according to the IP68 standard.
The front side will be given to a 6.6-inch pOLED display with a resolution of 2400×1800 pixels, an aspect ratio of 20:9, an image refresh rate of 144 Hz and a brightness of up to 1200 cd/m². The display will also have a built-in fingerprint scanner and a cutout for the front 32-megapixel camera (ƒ/2.5).
On the back, the large ThinkPhone logo (with a red dot on the “i”, of course) will also be accompanied by three camera sensors: a wide-angle one with 50 MP and ƒ/1.8, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide angle with ƒ/2.4 and a capture angle of 120°, as well as an auxiliary sensor for measuring depth.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 will work inside. Memory options will include variants with 8 or 12 GB of RAM, and 128, 256 or 512 GB of storage. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth versions are unfortunately not specified, but 5G and NFC can be found in the specifications. Android 13 will additionally be able to quickly exchange files with laptops, and will also be equipped with some improvements from Motorola (turn the smartphone over for silent mode, gestures for screenshots, reducing the call volume when picking up the device, etc.).
The capacity of the built-in battery will be 5000 mAh. It will also support 68W fast charging and 15W induction charging.
What such a leak does not indicate is at least approximate prices and dates for the start of sales, along with global availability.
