yoga 260 LTE ram soldered

2016-04-18, 16:16 PM

The LTE version of the yoga 260 is now available. I recntly tried to order one through campuspoint.de together with a RAM upgrade to 16GB. Upon trying to acctually do the upgrade the people at campuspoint.de noticed that, unlike in the non-LTE version, the RAM in the yoga 260 with LTE is actually soldered to the mainboard. 

 

My questions are:

 

Is this true for all variants of the yoga 260 with LTE or is there also a variant with LTE and non-soldered ram?

Is is possible to upgrade a non-LTE yoga 260 with non-soldered RAM with LTE (antenna, SIM slot,...)?

Oh man.. this is bad news :(

 

I wonder if structural issues such as the pen slot cracking have been looked at since we are obviously looking at some kind of revision of the chassis/mainboard?

I have seen nothing to indicate that there is any option related to soldered RAM with or without the WWAN card.  The normal motherboard has 1 DIMM slot and ond M.2 slot for a WWAN card along with the required antenna cables.

Just saw the LTE version on Lenovo store too, "8GB onboard" (aka soldered) and no option for 16... what a disappointment...
