Lenovo’s ThinkPad series of laptops is arguably the most popular business-oriented computer. Over the years, it has gone through many design upgrades and now comes in both a foldable form factor and a traditional laptop design.

Building on that, Lenovo has come up with ThinkPhone by Motorola, which offers a distinctive design and several privacy and productivity features. Here is everything you need to know about Lenovo’s ThinkPhone by Motorola, launched at CES 2023.

In addition, it has a MIL-STD 810H certification so the phone has passed a number of rigorous testing environments.
Apart from that, the ThinkPhone by Motorola has a 6.6-inch 144Hz FHD+ pOLED display.
