Hi tinatan: We will do our best to provide the information you are looking for.
As you mentioned, based on the specifications showing in our web site, the processor models you gave us support up to 64GB of memory RAM:
Intel® Core™ i7-8750H
Intel® Core™ i7-8850H
Intel® Xeon® E-2176M
Intel® Xeon® E-2186M
What we recommned in this case is to get in contact with Lenovo directly for them to confirm if the specifications showing on their web site are correct. It seems to be there could be an error with that information:

Thank you for your prompt reply. I am sure Lenovo and Dell make no mistake on this and there has been numerous number of articles about 128GB ram laptop.
Both dell and Lenovo are offering 128GB ram at check out on their pages. Please see attached the screenshot of the two orders.
I got the reply from Lenovo.
Re: Thinkpad P52 / p72 with 128GB RAM

Hello and thanks for asking, below is a quote I received after reaching out to someone in the know;
"We worked with intel to qualify the new 32GB DIMMs on our new P52, P72 and P1 products. We had to make some slight changes to the memory controller but in the end we were able to get the 32GB DIMMs to pass all our quality and engineering tests. Although I don’t think Intel has officially changed their POR, even they agree that the memory works as expected; hence we are out selling it.
We did this exact thing when the 16GB DIMMs came out. They weren’t “officially” supported by Intel, but we worked with them and made it work"
The systems are currently configurable on the UK web site with 128GB, I haven't checked any others. They also mention above the P1 which only has two memory slots so I presume that was an oversight or indication to wait for 64GB memory chips to become available?
Hope that answers your question.
