X1 Yoga 3rd gen display matte or glossy?

PSREF is unclear if the display is matte/anti-glare or glossy.

 

For example, X1 Carbon 6th gen clearly states that FHD & WQHD are anti-glare, while HDR WQHD is glossy.

 

For X1 Yoga 3rd gen it's unclear. 

 

(X1 Yoga 2nd gen was available only with glossy screens. I ended up returning the OLED version as it was too glossy for my purposes.)

 

Can anyone who has received their X1Y3 shed more light on this?

 

Thank you!

Welcome to the Community

I don't have x1 yoga gen3 but no doubt it has a glossy coated screen. The touch device is manufactured by Laibao, the screens are from AUO and LGD.

Thank you for the pic! Looks very reflective. Do you know if this is the HDR WQHD screen or the regular FHD or WQHD screen?

This particlar image is for x1 yoga gen3 WQHD LCD. But not a screen itself gives such reflection. Its coating does. Other LCD assemblies give the same effect.

Re: X1 Yoga 3rd gen display matte or glossy?

Wanted to add as I have the WQHD (non-HDR) model: the screen is fairly reflective. Seems to be a sub-screen filter (etc) that helps mitigate, possibly a coating as per x220forme 's response (though not obvious to me w/close inspection), but I've found the screen to be pretty reflective - maybe a touch less than the Surface Book (1st gen). I ordered a couple of matte screen protectors and have installed the one that arrived first, added also for some bite while using the pen on screen - and have been pretty happy with it.

I have the matte screen which is just as glossy as the glossy screen on the previous Yoga. It's not matte!!!

Re: X1 Yoga 3rd gen display matte or glossy?

I have the 'matte' as well. I'm convinced they added a filter layer INside the screen - external is quite reflective despite any coating that may be applied IMO.
