Carbon X1 2017 WQHD release date?

Hi there, 

I’m very interested in purchasing the new X1 carbon, but with the 2k screen. I can’t find any official statement about a release date appart from “summer of 2017”.

 

Did anyone know more about it?

 

Have a nice day.

The chat service on shop.lenovo.com stated a July release, when I asked. 

No specific date.

Re: Carbon X1 2017 WQHD release date?

When I last asked their online chat support (last week), they said they simply "did not know".  This is in spite of the X1C product page saying WQHD would be available in June.  I'm a big Thinkpad fan - my X220 is still running strong and I got a Thinkpad Yoga 14 last fall which I sold only bc I was so amazed when I saw the release of the X1C 5th Gen in January.  But I have to say I am very very disappointed in Lenovo.  Almost six months after boasting the WQHD specs it is still not available with no estimate on timing either.  This is one of the largest companies in the world yet they can't seem to have an efficient supply chain.  No wonder HP has snatched the #1 PC maker crown away from Lenovo...

The WQHD option is now available in the US.

I don't work for Lenovo. I'm a crazy volunteer!

Indeed, WQHD upgrade is available in the states. For a relatively modest price as well.

 

So how about Europe? (Germany, to be more specific.)

...and also the UK?

 

I've been holding off purchasing a T470S in the hope the wqhd option becomes available for the X1.

The WQHD option is no longer available in the US.  The option became available in late June and now a few weeks later it is already out of stock.  Lenovo... GET YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES IN ORDER!
