As the name implies, the ThinkBook Plus Twist has a twistable display. This consists of a 13.3-inch 2.8K OLED touch display and a 12-inch front-lit colour e-ink display on the back.

Unlike prior Lenovo laptops with an e-ink display, the ThinkBook Plus Twist’s colour e-ink display can be used as a proper secondary display for the computer.
