Charge T480(s) via USB-C and External Monitor via USB-C at the same time?

Hi, I'm a bit confused after checking out the spec sheets of the T480 and T480s. Sometimes I read it has 1 USB-C port and sometimes it seems to have 2... 

 

What I would like to do is to:

- Charge the T480(s) via USB-C adapter

- Connect a USB-C external monitor via USB-C and power the external Monitor via that USB-C "cable" 

Both at the same time.

 

Is this possible with the T480/T480s without using a dock?

If I have read your message correctly (and ignore me if I haven't), you just have to plug your USB-C display through the second USB-C port with the laptop. The port that's right next to the charging USB-C that looks funny and wide  actually have a second USB-C within it. So you can charge your laptop with the charging port and plug the display to this one. Hope that solves your problem.
