Connect T480 to display port a 2k monitor

I currently using a T460 and connect to two external monitors using the onboard hdmi & mini display ports.  I am not using the display on the T460 however.

 

Which cable/adaptor I should buy to do the same on the T480?  Thanks.

The T480 will also have a HDMI port, but the mini DP is now carried over USB C:

You'll need an adapter that converts USB C to mini DP.

Something like this will work? It has additional usb-a port in additional to the mini-dp.
