I finally bought a T460 after using my T410 for 6 years and I'm already loving it from the start.
I've upgraded the RAM and the SSD and next I'm thinking of trying to upgrade the FHD display to WQHD. Upon researching, I've found that some people had asked the same but there was no clear answer The Lenovo site doesn't list any compatible WQHD panel in their compatibility list too, but I still want to believe.
To be honest, the display upgrade isn't a priority, but I'm just considering the possibility because, well... the current FHD display doesn't look that great. Classic Thinkpad I guess.
So, is it possible to upgrade T460 display to WQHD (FRU:00HN877)?
Does T460's motherboard support a port for the 40pin cable (FRU:00UR903)?
Even if it's not possible, I still want to know the reason why.
Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the forum!
Unfortunately I can't give you an exact answer, but what I remember from similar discussions a while ago this was not a straight swap:
So I think the original answer was "not possible". I'm not sure if in the meantime somebody found a workaround or made a custom cable.
