Lenovo announces new 2020 ThinkPad models

The new 2020 ThinkPad models have a simplified naming scheme and new 10th Gen Intel Core vPro processors.

With MWC being cancelled due to coronavirus concerns, Lenovo has had to announce its 2020 ThinkPad models via press release. Normally, the company would announce the 2020 ThinkPad models at MWC along with other product lines. While it is disappointing that the event is not happening, we understand the reasons behind it.

Lenovo’s 2020 ThinkPad models will look familiar to most of you as they build on and refresh the line for this year. The new 2020 ThinkPad models have a simplified naming scheme and new 10th Gen Intel Core vPro processors. They are also packing in Wi-Fi 6, Dolby Audio and plenty of display options. All of the new 2020 ThinkPad models undergo 12 Mil-Spec top-level tests and 22 subtest procedures including cold, heat, vibration, humidity, shock, altitude, radiation, dust and more.

Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from Lenovo in 2020:
