Lenovo is announcing their 2017 ThinkPad lineup today, and on the convertible side of things the new ThinkPad X1 Yoga is “the only 14-inch notebook with an OLED screen”, and though that particular panel type is optional, having seen last year’s OLED model in person the pure blacks and infinite contrast make IPS options pale in comparison (literally).

"Also available in the new metallic silver, the updated ThinkPad X1 Yoga is flawlessly flexible and adapts to its users’ needs offering true multi-mode capability and can deliver stunning colors and absolute blacks on the only 14-inch notebook with an OLED screen. A redesigned rechargeable pen and improved ‘rise and fall' keyboard complete the improved experience."

The improved 'rise and fall' keyboard appears to operate differently from the original 'Lift 'n Lock' design, as the keys themselves (rather than a panel surrounding them) are raised and lowered depending on orientation of the Yoga's 2-in-1 design.

The specifications are very similar (with the exception of that OLED panel option) to the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which makes sense considering the X1 Yoga is essentially the convertible version of that notebook:
