X1 Yoga Gen 4 new docking port?

In looking at the CES 2019 coverage of X1 Yoga Gen 4 I noticed on left side next to USB-C / Thunderbolt port is what looks like a new docking port? Any details on this port or docks? Is it exclusive to X1 Yoga Gen 4?

The X1 Yoga Gen 4 now supports the same USB-C based mechanical side docks 40AG/40AH/40AJ which appeared for much of the rest of the ThinkPad range in 2018:

For example this one.

 

Hope this helps!

There isn't a version like the old OneLink(+) ones though? We liked those in schools since they were so rugged compared to USB-C cable. Thanks.

Your options are the new mechanical (locking) side docks, a USB-C dock, or Thunderbolt 3 dock (which uses a USB-C connector). If USB-C isn't rugged enough for normal use, then we're all in trouble!

Schools != normal use for anything and especially connectors. USB-C is better then Micro-USB but not as good as OneLink connectors were. Those were indestructible. Thanks for the info.

Would a docking station for the X250 work on the new X1 Yoga 4th Gen?

 

What's the Pro's and Con's of using the 90W/230W  Dock vs an USB/Thunderbolt?
