X series screen upgrade alternatives

So I currently have the really bad 12.5" 1366x768 TN panel on my x250 that I want to change. After a lot of browsing and googling these seem to be the upgrade alternatives for x220/x230/x250 (and maybe some other models):

1) 12.5" 1920x1808 IPS
2) 13.3" 1920x1808 IPS
3) 12.5" 2560x1440 IPS (only x220/x230?)

What I would like is 13.3", IPS, matte surface (no touch) and more pixels than 1920x1080. I did a bunch of searches on panelook.com and these are the models that seems to fit (TX34D200VM0BAA and LP133QD1-SPB2) and if you change the search to glossy you get lots more:

Is there a reason no one has done this mod that I'm not aware of?
