That happened to me twice, I was told that the facotry was out of keyboards and it an ongoing issue? Not sure if that is your reason or not but its possible.

You can buy the LTE WAN M.2 module and install it yourself.

 

Regarding the keyboard theory, the same delays are affecting Europe and UK which use different keyboard layouts to the US. Unless the issue isn’t with the lack of key caps.

Based on my personal experience, all laptops that have WWAN options come pre-installed with the antenna, only module is missing. Even if the antenna is genuinely missing, there are modules that come with their own patch antenna that you could stick somewhere inside the casing.

 

Are you sure the antenna is missing? This would be a first for me.

Last year I ordered one Thinkpad Yoga 260 and it does not have the antenna installed, I bought the antenna separately from aliexpress and stuck them under the base cover.

I just had a chat session with Lenovo in the pre-sales section of the website and they stated that they are not shipping any WANN antenna's with the current crop of machines. He said they will be adding this at a later time.

If you purchased it and paid for it you should be fine. They have pulled it from all new builds and hope to bring it back later this year. If you do not pay for it then you cannot have it.
