Fingerprint reader

See Lenovo ThinkPad T460p#Fingerprint reader; the X1 Yoga gen 1 and the T460p share the same fingerprint reader.

Brightness control on the OLED version

OLED screens do not have a built in backlight, since they have their own light. Thus, they are usually controlled by PWM. Currently, a very small amount of OLED screens are supported by the kernel, and unfortunately, as of Sept. 2021, the X1 Yoga gen 1 is not one of them. Currently, the workaround is, to use some color filter on your screen, like on xorg: xrandr --brightness .
