At Computex 2019, Dell has announced the new XPS 13 and XPS 15 laptops. The new XPS 13 will be powered by Intel’s 10th generation Ice Lake processors while XPS 15 will come with Intel’s 9th generation H-series processors.
Intel hasn’t disclosed the processor SKU for XPS 13 2-in-1 and that’s mainly because the processors were launched today. However, the spec sheet lists the Core i3-1005 G1 (8MB cache, up to 3.4GHz), the Quad Core i5-1035 G1 (6MB cache, up to 3.7GHz), and the Core i7-1065 G7 (4MB cache, up to 3.9GHz) processors. Apart from the processor, the XPS 13 also includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. Dell has also added a 4k InfinityEdge display and has webcam on the top. Unfortunately, the new XPS 13 ditches face recognition. Dell will allow customers to configure the XPS 13 up to 32GB LPDDR4x SDRAM at 3733MHz and up to 1TB SSD. Dell is also bundling Windows 10 Home Ulta which might be an extension to Windows 10 Home. The new XPS 13 will cost $999 and is expected to ship soon. Since the device comes with 10th generation processors, the shipping schedule depends mostly on Intel.
Moving to XPS 15, it comes with a 9th generation Intel processor and will be available Core i9 as well. The device also supports Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU and also comes with up to 4K OLED display support. If you decide go with 4K display, you will have an option to choose between UltraSharp 4K at 500 nits with touch and OLED 4K at 400 nits without touch. Like the XPS 13, XPS 15 also has a webcam on the top and it ditches the face recognition. The device can be configured up to 64GB Dual Channel DDR4 2666MHz RAM and 2TB PCIe 3×4 SSD. The XPS 15 will cost $999.99 for 1080p display and the OLED variant will cost $1,899.99.
