Motorola ThinkPhone leak shows off Lenovo ThinkPad-like phone

Posted on

Have you always wanted the same carbon fiber Lenovo ThinkPad design in a phone? Well, you might be in luck soon, as leaked images of a “ThinkPhone by Motorola” over at The Tech Outlook (spotted by android police) show a handset with the exact carbon fiber styling of Lenovo’s ThinkPad laptops. Motorola owner Lenovo even uses the traditional ThinkPad font on the ThinkPhone.

The leaked specs suggest that the ThinkPhone will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. That’s not Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship chip that’s just starting to appear in new devices, but the same chip that was announced in May and has since shipped in handsets from Honor, Oppo and Xiaomi.

The ThinkPhone is also expected to come with a 6.6-inch OLED display (1800 x 2400) capable of 144Hz and HDR, a 32-megapixel front camera and a triple rear camera array with a main camera of 50 megapixels. 13 megapixel ultrawide and 2 megapixel depth sensor.

The blurry marketing images also show some form of integration with Lenovo laptops, but it’s not clear exactly what features will be supported. The leak does not mention availability or price, nor whether the ThinkPhone will be available outside of China. Given that we’re just weeks away from the Consumer Electronics Show in January, followed by Mobile World Congress a month later, it’s reasonable to assume we’ll see an official ThinkPhone announcement soon.
