I am planning to get the X1 Yoga 3rd gen with the HDR screen, however, it seems the wwan is out of stock for it. So I am curious if I could just order the wwan separately and install it later, or, when can I expect wwan to be available with hdr?

Hi wowing, Seems to be in stock at the moment. The challenge with installing WWAN later is the antennas, not the card. I highly recommend ordering with WWAN already installed.
Hope this helps!

It seems to be available in UK/ Europe but in US/Canada it says
"The WWAN 4G LTE is not available on configurations with the HDR WQHD display with Dolby vision."
Where can I buy the antennas / WWAN card?

Thanks for the thread, I was able to find the WWAN card. which sadly seems out of stock atm but I guess I can wait
However, your linked thread did not show the Antennas, So where can I find the WWAN Antennas for the X1 Yoga 3rd gen?
Also, in the case I can't order the Antennas, How can I order from a different Lenovo Region? like the lenovo UK which has the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen with the HDR screen and WWAN card already installed?

You will need the proper antennas for WWAN. I would review the Yoga X1 2nd gen OLED upgrade thread(s) - the process should be near identical. I believe the antenna kit you'll need is FRU 01AY958 but be sure to double check. You will need the WWAN card compatible with the gen 3.

Thank you, how can I do as you recommend which is to double check if the antennas can work with the X1Y3?
+ this WWAN card
Following this tutorial
X1Y3 with HDR screen + WWAN?
Its quite the work, so I want to be sure this process will yield the result. Also, does Lenovo have official documents on this process?
Wished lenovo could just make this combo available :/

I really don't know how you can be 100% sure. For the Yoga Gen 1 and Gen 2 there are disassembly and reassembly videos and a printed maintenance guide. See if you can find those for the 3rd generation. I would guess it is 90% the same but have only modified a gen 2.
