  • Motorola ThinkPhone key specifications include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, 68W TurboPower fast charging support, and a 6.6-inch 144Hz OLED panel.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone following the latest tech happenings for a while that Motorola, a former American company, is now under Lenovo, a China-based company. Besides this, the latter also acquired IBM’s desktop and laptop business, best known for its popular ThinkPad lineup of laptops aimed at premium business customers. Lenovo now ships them under the Lenovo ThinkPad series, and they are pretty popular in the market. Now, it seems like the brand is taking its “Think” branding more seriously and plans to bring it to the smartphone space.
