Lenovo have announced the 3rd generation Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet (2018) at CES which Lenovo is upgrading with the 8th gen. Intel Core i7 and i5 processor this year. The release date is set to early April from Lenovo Store: lenovo.com/ThinkPad-X1-Tablet-3rd-Gen
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet was first launched 2 years ago and was noticed for having modules for it. But since this is generally a enterprise tablet, most people don’t get to see it outside of the workplace. This new one will launch in March from $1599.
Customers get up to 16GB LPDDR3 RAM, 1TB PCIe SSD storage, 9.5 hour battery life, full 2×2 Wi-Fi cover, 2x Thunderbolt 3 ports, optional 4G LTE, and a 13-inch screen with 3000 x 2000 resolution, meaning that it joins the ranks of the 3K tablets Surface Book 2, Porsche Design Book One, and Chuwi Hi13.
It also has Gorilla Glass and a good 4096 pressure level sensitive active digitizer pen called Lenovo Pen Pro.
A new accessory for Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet G3 is a Lenovo Privacy Filter made by 3M that darkens the screen when viewed at angles.
And while we’re om the subject of privacy, Lenovo is also introducing a physical webcam shutter on the two coming Windows laptops X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga. But this feature is not available on the X1 Tablet.
