We already told you about the fifth Thinkpad X1 Carbon generation a few weeks ago, when the laptop first leaked with most specs. Shortly before the new year started, Lenovo itself provided us with more information by leaking the new Thinkpad once again.

A few weeks ago, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon for 2017, the company's fifth generation leaked the first time and revealed most of the specs of the new high-end laptop. Lenovo then followed suit shortly before new years eve and mistakenly published detailed information about the new laptop on their own website. Of course the information was discovered and taken down shortly thereafter but screenshots and pictures of the leak are still circulating the web and can be found on many sites. We attached a screenshot showing the leaked information down below.

The Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2017 will be available with processors up to an Intel Core vPro i7-7600U and up to 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of fast OPAL-SSDs. The 14 inch display with very slim bezels will offer either Full-HD- or WQHD resolution. The battery of the Thinkpad is said to last up to 15.5 hours. Lenovo did not only integrate two USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 3 support but also kept legacy ports like HDMI, USB 3.0, SD-card slot and RJ45. Optionally you can have models with LTE modem and NFC support as well as a WiGIG capable wireless dock. The Thinkpad X1 Carbon 2017 weighs in at 1.14 kg and will be announced at CES 2017 in a couple of days.
