T480S Three External Screens

I'm trying to setup three external screens configuration and stumbled upon the following. I have 3 screens: 

1. 4k (3840x2160) 60Hz

2. 2560x1600 60Hz

3. 1920x1200 60Hz


I was hoping to use all possible outputs on the laptop (2 USB-C and HDMI), but apparently you can't do that - you can pick only two out of those three. I also tried using USB-C docking station, and again - it limits resolution to 1200p, which is not enough (4K display via USB-C, docking station via second USB-C and two screens 1200p and 1600p via docking station, the latter gets resolution only up to 1200p).


So, I found this on Amazon:

It's a Thunderbolt 3 splitter to two Display Port outputs, claiming to support two screens 4K at 60Hz. And it looks like laptop has Thunderbolt 3 ouput. So, will it support all my screens with full resolutions using that splitter? Again, I envision configuration to be:

1. 4K display via 1st USB-C (this will be a miniDP adapter with power)

2. Splitter via second (Thunderbolt 3), and two other screens (1920x1200 & 2560x1600) connected using that splitter.


Will that work?
