However, unlike most premium offerings, the Lenovo Thinkpad Transparent does not have an AMOLED panel, but a MicroLED display instead.

The MicroLED display is touted to offer better saturation, transparency, brightness and image quality compared to its OLED alternative, as per media reports.

Apart from the transparent display, Lenovo's concept video also showed a flat touch keyboard.

The flat touch keyboard is a projection rather than an actual keyboard, and the keyboard starts to disappear when you bring the pen close to the Thinkbook.
