XPS 15-17 2020Dell has announced the long-rumored new high-grade XPS 17 and XPS 15 laptops overseas. At the back-right in the photo above is the 17-inch XPS 17, and on the left is the 15-inch XPS 15 (at the front on the right is the current 13-inch XPS 13 series).

Both models feature a drastically reduced bezel (the frame part around the screen). As with the current XPS 13, the design when opening up the case is practically a frameless screen. The screen aspect ratio is the rumored 16:10, providing more pixels on the horizontal plane than typical 16:9 displays. This is also a feature inherited from the current XPS 13.

The long-awaited new XPS 17 model has a footprint that measures 14.74 x 9.76 x 0.77 inches (approximately 37 x 25 x 2 cm). Dell claims that this is the "smallest 17-inch laptop on the planet".

For the display resolution, you can choose from full HD+ (1920 x 1200) or 4K UHD+ (3840 x 2400). The 4K spec also supports HDR 400 and is 100% compliant with Adobe RGB.

The CPU is a 10th-generation Core processor, while the GPU is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q. In terms of battery life, the full HD+ model runs for up to 20 hours. The design also focuses on heat dissipation, featuring double-layered opposing fans, etc.

FHD+ or 4K UHD+ can also be selected on the XPS 15, with its 15.7-inch display. The CPU here is a 10th-generation Core processor, and the GPU is a GeForce GTX 1650Ti Max-Q. The Full HD+ model boasts a battery life of up to 25 hours.

The XPS 15 starts at $1,300 (approx. 140,000 yen) and goes on sale this week. The XPS 17 is priced at $1,500 (approx. 160,000 yen) and will be launched this summer.

Looking at the competition in the field of 17-inch-class laptops, LG's "LG gram" series is in its second generation of products, while Apple's MacBook Pro has also been expanded from 15-inch to 16-inch screen sizes, so it seems that consumer demand for large-screen laptops is gradually increasing.
