The X1 was praised for its mix of military-grade durability and high-end specs. It's generally regarded as the best of the best when it comes to the ThinkPad range and reports out of Digital Trends indicate this will very much be the case with the refreshed version due in 2017.
They say the new variant is said to deliver better performance and battery life, courtesy of a new Kaby Lake processor. According to leaked documentation, touchscreen functionality will also be added to the device's display alongside a pair of USB Type-C ports.
There's also talk of an infrared webcam designed to make use of Windows 10's new Hello feature.
It's highly unlikely to be the only announcement out of CES from Lenovo but as far as starting points go, it's a strong one.
CES 2017 is set to take place in Las Vegas from January 5th to 8th in Las Vegas.
