After a successful XPS 13 2020, Dell is about to launch a new version of its XPS 15. A fugitive image gives us an insight into the design of the aircraft, which should also feature a full on-board screen.
We recently tested the Dell XPS 13 model 2020. Now we’re hearing about the XPS 15 2020. Still in gestation, but not for much longer, the device has recently passed through the Korean regulators who leaked a picture of the product on their official website.
The opportunity to discover a little more about this new XPS and especially about its design… which reminds the one of the XPS 13 2020.
It features an edge-to-edge screen, with very thin borders on the sides, the top, and especially the underside of the IPS panel that it should logically display.
A REDESIGNED, MORE MODERN DESIGN… AND A 16:10 SCREEN!
Last year, Dell had already trimmed the edges of the screen of its XPS 15 2019, but left a large black bar under the slab. In the photo unveiled this week by the Korea Energy Agency Efficiency Standardization Certification Center, the latter seems to have completely disappeared.
The manufacturer of Round Rock would then decline on its XPS 15 2020 the design already adopted on the XPS 13 2020, which gives pride of place to a 16:10 screen instead of the traditional 16:9 ratio. A higher format, less narrow, particularly pleasant in Web navigation and office automation.
While it’s difficult to draw precise conclusions from a single fleeing shot, the XPS 15 also seems to benefit from a larger keyboard than last year, and speakers on either side of it.
The webcam seems to be integrated just above the screen, in a thin border. Here again, the XPS 15 would take up a feature of its little brother the XPS 13, which integrates a 720p webcam with face recognition via Windows Hello.
These few changes echo previous leaks, this time directly from Dell. Also on display was a possible XPS 17, which would complement the current range with an even larger 17-inch model.
As a reminder, unlike the XPS 13, the XPS 15 features more powerful processors coupled with dedicated graphics chips for greater versatility. However, we still have no concrete clues as to the device’s technical specifications.
