Thinkpad X1 extreme screen upgrade

2019-02-21, 11:59 AM

I bought a 1080p Thinkpad X1 Extreme. Now after several months of using, I would like to upgrade the screen to 4K. Is this possible?

Solved! See the solution

Yes, it would be possible. I will try in the next few weeks when I receive the components.

CABLE FRU: 01YU747 LCD UHD cable

LCDFRU 00NY694  - B156ZAN03.2

 

You can search on web.

 

I hate touchscreen... but, warranty...

 

Bye!

X1 E with 4k display is about 0.3mm thicker. Without case replacement it may be imposible.

Everything ok.

Changed successfuly. 

I suggest buying a new frame to make it perfect.

CABLE FRU: 01YU747 LCD UHD cable

LCDFRU 00NY694  - B156ZAN03.2

FRAME: 01YU734

 

Here you have a good guide with detailed photos about the change process: https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/czjo0i/x1_extreme_144hz_screen_upgrade_with_guide/
