Launched in the US for $699

The Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola is being launched today in the U.S. for $699.

It's the first co-branded phone from Motorola that arrives nine years after Lenovo purchased the Motorola brand for $2.91 billion. The smartphone offers "a suite of productivity features designed to play nice with ThinkPad laptops." 

The ThinkPhone looks like a mainstream flagship phone, even though it's priced just below the likes of the $799 Samsung Galaxy S23. It comes with a big 6.6-inch 1080p OLED with up to 144Hz refresh rate. It comes with an aluminum frame, Gorilla Glass on the front panel, and Lenovo's signature textured aramid fibre back panel for a softer touch.

The device is IP68 rated for strong dust and water resistance, and it's also MIL-STD-810H compliant to protect against falls and more extreme conditions.

In addition to the ThinkPad-like look and feel, there's a red key on the side of the phone in a nod to Lenovo's classic keyboard nub. You can customise it to a degree: a double-press can be assigned one of the phone's ThinkPad integration features, while a single-press can act as an app shortcut.

The ThinkPhone is available first to enterprise customers, with general availability tomorrow from
