ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4: Leaked video shows taller display for thin multimedia flagship
The X1 Extreme is among the few Lenovo ThinkPads that have not been updated yet this year. The upcoming Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4 seems to be a huge redesign, as a leaked video shows wide speaker grills and a taller screen.

All Lenovo ThinkPad laptops announced in 2021 have one thing in common: The all use U series class processors, no matter if they are AMD or Intel based. The more powerful ThinkPad notebooks with H class processors have not been updated yet.

Seemingly, this is about to change. Lenovo seems to have waited for Intel to make the Tiger Lake H45 announcement and a first ThinkPad laptop with these new chips may hit the market soon. To be more precise: The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 4.

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme is the largest, most powerful model of the high-end X1 series. It is meant to compete with the likes of the Dell XPS 15 or the Apple MacBook Pro 16 - and it is overdue for a redesign. Lenovo has introduced the ThinkPad X1 Extreme in 2018, and last years X1 Extreme Gen 3 (available from Amazon) still uses the very same basic design.

This run will end with the X1 Extreme 2021: A video has leaked on Youtube, which shows a 360 view of the new model. It features a visually distinct design compared with its predecessor, with the taller screen (possibly a 16:10 aspect ratio) and wide upward-firing speaker grills beside the keyboard. The video also shows an unchanged area: The X1 Extreme Gen 4 keeps its legacy port array, unlike the competing Dell XPS 15.

Unfortunately, the video does not reveal anything about the internals, except for the fact that the X1 Extreme will continue to use Intel CPUs.

I was an ardent reader of Notebookcheck’s laptop reviews even back in school. After writing reviews as a hobby, I then joined Notebookcheck in 2016 and have worked on device reviews and news articles ever since then. My personal interest lies more with laptops than smartphones, with business laptops being the most interesting category for me. Technology should make our lives and work easier and good laptops are an essential tool for that to happen. This is why laptop reviews are not just my work but are also my passion.
