Lenovo-owned Motorola, which in turn owns the ThinkPad line, is teasing the first ThinkPhone. Thus, the company is going to release a new line of flagship business-class smartphones.
According to the official promo materials, the ThinkPhone will be presented at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2023. The latter will be held between January 5 and 8 in Las Vegas.
The model should get a thin body with a carbon texture on the back panel. Probably, the side frame will be made of aluminum. We have come to such assumptions because of the location of the antenna strips. There is an additional red button that resembles the TrackPoint on ThinkPad laptops. Likely, it will be a multi-function button that can be customized to meet your needs.

The smartphone should receive an OLED display with a diagonal of 6.6 inches. Also, it should support a refresh rate of 144Hz and HDR10+.
The triple camera will include a 50MP main sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the smartphone has a front camera with a resolution of 32MP (it is located in a circular cut-out at the top in the center of the display).
Last year’s flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset should be responsible for the model’s operation (although some insiders claim the phone will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2). Apart from this, there will be 8GB to 12GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of native storage.
We still have no clue what a capacity battery it will come with. But we know that the ThinkPhone will surely support TurboPower fast charging – 68W wired and 15W wireless charging options.
Considering that this is a business-class smartphone, which will probably have a number of additional features that are not found in other solutions from Lenovo and Motorola, we think it will cost an arm and a leg.
