The most interesting update about Lenovo ThinkBook Plus is the fact that the device will probably sport a secondary screen that will also act like a touchpad and a number key.
This report was based on reputable leaker Evan Blass who made the post on Sunday, Oct. 30th where he showed the alleged 17-inch Lenovo ThinkBook Plus laptop with a second display right next to the keyboard.
Based on the leaked image, the second display looks like a true secondary display that can be used to do tasks that can then be relayed onto the main screen such as drawing.

This will make the device a very useful gadget for designers since they have a secondary display that they can use for designing objects while watching their output from the main display.
The computer also includes a full keyboard and a trackpad right beneath the keyboard.
It also looks like it’ll offer support for a stylus pen. So designing on this device is definitely going to be buttery smooth.
But apart from the cool-looking picture of the Lenovo ThinkBook Plus, there aren’t any details about the features and functionalities which means we might have to wait for the release of the device next year during CES 2022.
There weren’t any further details about the image, which Blass posted as part of a thread of other leaked images.
The first-gen ThinBook Plus was announced back in 2020 during the CES event sporting an E-ink display built into the device’s lid.
The new leak says otherwise and that could point to the fact that Lenovo is moving away from the lid panel and adopting a built-in display right next to the keyboard instead.
All of these are just speculations though which is why we’ll have to wait until the year 2022’s CES event by January 5th.
