ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6: Windows-boss Myerson might have leaked a picture of the new ThinkPad flagship

Is this the new X1 Carbon 2018?
Is this the new X1 Carbon 2018?
That might have been a bit too hastily: Terry Myerson, the head of the Windows-division of Microsoft, has twittered about the new PCs announced yesterday by Dell and HP – and he might have revealed a new flagship ThinkPad by doing so.

The days and weeks around the CES are a busy time for the tech-industry, because there are many important announcements at CES. Microsoft isn't participating directly at the CES. But indirectly, they are, through their partners. Case in point: Lenovo and Dell, two prominent PC manufacturers, who announced new PCs yester just days before CES.

Terry Myerson, the head honcho of the Windows business at Microsoft, has twittered about these new PCs that were announced yesterday, like the new Dell XPS 13 and Lenovo ThinkPads like the X280 or T480s.

As part of his tweet, Myerson posted two pictures. One of them showed the new XPS 13, but the other does not show any ThinkPad announced yesterday. Indeed, pictured is a ThinkPad that has a sticker that reads "X1 Carbon" beneath the display. Lenovo did not announce new X1 models yesterday, but we do know that they are planned for the CES, thanks to a different leak. Myerson's tweet might imply that Lenovo announces the X1 Carbon next week, as he writes that "next week will be very exciting" in the same tweet where the posted a picture of the X1 Carbon.

Of course, this leak, which consists out of a single picture, does not reveal much about the hardware of shown model. But we can be pretty certain that it indeed is the new X1 Carbon: The shown ThinkPad has a webcam-cover. One of the big new features announced alongside yesterdays ThinkPads was the "ThinkShutter", a new mechanical webcam-cover that also seems to be present here. Also, the Lenovo logo beneath the screen looks different from last years X1 Carbon 5.

Notebookcheck will continue to report on all CES related news, including the new X1 Carbon, should Lenovo indeed announce it at CES.
