W540/P50 swapping FHD to 3K and 4K

Is it possible to upgrade the FHD panel on a W540 to 3K or 4K? Some on the fourm say Yes from FHD to 3K, but others have said No because it requires a board change? It seems at the very least it's a panel and cable change, potentially the lid (although I suspect it will fit just fine). 


The 3K and 4K panels are 40-pin eDP, so this sound like they're interchangable.

On W540, panel, cable and lid are different.  I believe the bezel is also different, but I haven't done it.  P50 is the same plus the hinges.
