What screen is used in Yoga 720 13" (might fit in X301)

Recently I saw some info about the newish Lenovo Yoga 720 13".
It has a 13.3" IPS FHD screen (1920x1080).
(The X301 also has a 13.3" screen but it is only TN 1440x900).
Can anybody tell me exactly which screen (manufacturer, exact model) is used in there?

I'm interested because that screen might just fit in the X300/X301 which is not renowned for screen quality.

The Yoga's outer dimensions are: 12.2 x 8.4 x 0.6 inches (310 x 213 x 14.3 mm)
The X301 has (big enough) ones: 12.5 x 9.1 x 0.7 inches (318 x 231 x 18.6 mm)

According to https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-Yo ... 798.0.html, it's LP133WF4-SPB1, but it's glossy.

Since there's no docking connector, you have to sacrifice the DP port at the back.

Interesting as the 13.3 size will always be popular so options will hopefully emerge.

Then all is needed is an ARM processor motherboard and you may see a 2 in 1 X301 in the future with "adequate power". LOL

If there are enough X300's and X301's floating around, maybe HOPE and his team can design an X302/310 board. :D
