Hello,
Help me please.
Can I replace ThinkPad T480 1366x768 screen with 1920x1080 screen? Are they compatible?

I got a computer shop to replace the display on my T450 with a 1920x1080 panel and it works brilliantly. So I would say that was totally possible.

Is there a better answer for this?

It seems there are a few LCD cables:
01YR501 Windu-2 (20L5/20L6) FRU LCD eDP Cable,WN-2
01YR502 Windu-2 (20L5/20L6) FRU Touch LCD Cable,WN-2
01YR503 Windu-2 (20L5/20L6) FRU WQHD LCD Cable,WN-2

Is the 01YR501 used with both the HD and FHD screens?

These are frubom-listed T480 14" FHD IPS Anti-Glare 250nit panels:
BOE 01LW093 On-Cell
AUO 01LW092 On-Cell
LGD 01LW010
INX 02DL764 45% VESBkt
INX 01EN100 Slim
BOE 01YN162 Touch
BOE 01YN103
BOE 01YN143
AUO 01YU650 On-Cell
AUO 00NY673
You'll need to do some serious searching to find the correct manufacturer part-numbers.
On-Cell means it's a Touch-screen.
No idea what VESBkt or Slim means.

There are also brighter 400nit LowPower screens from the T490/s that seem to fit in T480:

Let us know what you have done, when ready.

No one's reported back about trying any of the 400 nit panels? Or they've tried and only had ghosting problems?

The few models I checked appear to have the socket in the correct location. Can anyone confirm that stock FHD T480 screens are 3.4mm thick?

The few I saw on ebay are missing mounting brackets -- could take a few beer bottle caps, a file, and some epoxy to add metal tabs onto the panel.

I've installed a N140HCG-GQ2 into a t480. It's got one dead pixel, but otherwise works fine. Haven't measured the brightness or contrast, but it is a huge improvement over the NT140WHM-N41 v8.0 (FRU 01EN020).

There are a few extra millimeters at the screen-top and on the sides which needs to be filled. Also, there are not mounting tabs.
