  • Inclusion of X1C6(and Thinkpads in general) into the fwupd program:
    • Status as of 2018-07-31: the X1C6 is now supported by fwupd, but in my test with BIOS update 1.27 the firmware is downloaded and noticed by the BIOS at boot but updates don't seem to actually get applied. --Alan Orth (talk) 12:17, 31 July 2018 (UTC)

Fingerprint reader

See github.com/nmikhailov/Validity90, especially the 9a branch.

Device id: 06cb:009a

Status as of 04/2018: "Init works, leds work, scan doesn't work yet"

Other Power saving

Investigate how to get Watt usage down to ~2W like the Dell XPS 13 9360/9370, similar to the instructions on the XPS 9360 page, especially since the i915 video driver can be tweaked similarly with the Intel Graphics Module Powersaving Options since it’s also an HD 620 integrated video unit.

NFC

Does anyone know if the NFC itself works? I think it should be listed in the Model description > Support section's feature table.
