The new nomenclature will be valid from next year.
According to a Chinese source, Lenovo will rename the ThinkPad series notebooks next year: the letter will remain in the designation, but the numbers will be two instead of three. Previously, such a scheme has already been tested on the ThinkPad E490 and E590, which in China came out under the designations E14 and E15, respectively.
Now on Lenovo’s website, mention is made of the T14 and X13 models – renamed ThinkPad T490 and ThinkPad X390, respectively. It is expected that the updated line of ThinkPad laptops along with new designations will debut at CES 2020, which will be held in early January in Las Vegas.
