Dell is refreshing two of the products on its XPS line. The company is introducing an improved XPS 13 2-in-1, and it’s also launching a new XPS 15.
With the new XPS 13 2-in-1, Dell is introducing an improved design overall. The company is introducing a larger display, which increases the footprint of the device, allowing for a slightly larger keyboard and a larger touchpad. The display of the device now has a 16:10 ratio, which is 7% larger than before and has HDR400 certification. IT also comes with a new Eyesafe tech that will apparently reduce the harmful blue light that gets emitted from the screen.
Starting at $999, Dell’s new XPS 13 2-in-1 also comes with Intel’s new 10th gen Ice Lake CPU which apparently allows for a 2.5x performance boost on the device in an 8% thinner form. Dell says the device will offer up to 16 hours of battery life.
The new XPS 13 2-in-1 also brings Dell’s new MagLev keyboard design to the device, which includes larger key caps and a fingerprint scanner embedded right into the keyboard. The new keyboard design allows for softer, quieter keys, and the design is an overall 24% thinner than a standard keyboard. The device also comes with a 19% larger touchpad.
Dell is also moving the webcam of the device from the bottom of the display to the top, much like it did with the regular XPS 13 earlier in the year. The same applies to the new XPS 15 it’s launching today. As for the new XPS 15, customers are only getting 9th gen Intel Core processors, and NVIDIA’s new GTX 1650 RAM with up to 64GB of RAM, and a new 4K OLED panel (that variant starts at $1,899).
