New Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon packs Alexa, Dolby Vision HDR display

Even after jumping the gun by announcing its "most complete ThinkPad portfolio" last week, and seizing the actual CES 2018 spotlight yesterday with the additional introductions of a Google Assistant-powered Smart Display, Mirage Solo with Daydream headset and Mirage VR180 camera, Lenovo isn't quite done making waves at the year's first major tech trade show.

Outside of the ThinkPad X1 Series, Lenovo also announced the Miix 630, a Windows 10 S 2-in-1 detachable. The higher variant of new X1 Carbon will run on Intel's 8th gen Core i7 chipsets with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon comes with a robust built quality and carries forward the military grade certifications from its predecessor. Additionally, it packs a 16GB DDR3RAM and up to 1TB PCIe SSD. They all boast 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon and Yoga now include the new ThinkShutter webcam cover that's supposed to protect users from being spied on. The ThinkPad X1 Tablet 3rd generation ships in March and starts at $1,599.

The ThinkPad L Series will hit the market from February 2018, at starting price $549 (approx Rs 34,946) for ThinkPad L380 Yoga, $449 (approx Rs 28,954) for L380, $779 (approx Rs 49,654) for L480 and $769 (approx Rs 48,950) for L580. The Carbon opts for a more traditional laptop clamshell, whereas the Yoga opts for a 2-in-1 hinge that lets you flip the display 360 degrees backward for tablet mode. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga features the same set of internals as found inside its robust and costlier brother, the X1 Carbon. (1.3 kg). That small amount of mass is still somehow enough to allow for a battery that provides up to 9.5 hours of battery life.

Apart from these two, the Chinese OEM unveiled a new professional tablet.

Lenovo has given the third-generation ThinkPad X1 Tablet an all-new 13-inch design, with a 3K display (3,000 x 2,000 pixels) promising vibrant colors and supporting HDR (with the screen being fashioned from Gorilla Glass). It has a 14-inch display, supports HDR and offers a resolution of 1,920×1,080p. To make sure you don't miss a beat, all three of these new ThinkPads will come with global LTE-A connectivity options. It comes with its keyboard and digital pen at that price. Now, it is time to check out what the company has introduced in the premium ThinkPad X1 lineup. Further, the 32-inch near-edgeless monitor features Thunderbolt 3 In and Out ports for daisy-chain capability. Apart from that, the professional monitor comes with four USB 3.0 port and a 3.5mm audio jack. Both the devices will go on sale in late January this year.
