Dell's XPS 13 2-in-1 rivals the Surface Pro |  Spanish Digital Trends

Dell is giving its XPS 13 2-in-1 a new overhaul. The new 2022 model, which will arrive this summer, combines the iPad Pro Yes Surface Pro 8with a detachable keyboard and a beautiful new square look.

This new all-aluminum XPS 13 2-in-1 ditches the old convertible laptop look for a new 2-in-1 tablet form factor. Dell mentions that it is “designed to blur the line between work, learning and life”. It also “puts entertainment and productivity front and center” and is the first XPS model with optional 5G connectivity (only on “Slate” color model).

The latest XPS features a magnetically attached folio keyboard, which can also be folded into a stand to turn the device into a laptop (but will be sold separately). This keyboard has a microfiber lining to protect the device during travel. The folio keyboard sets it apart from the Surface Pro, which has its own built-in kickstand.

This folio keyboard is also what can tilt the screen 100, 112.5 or 125 degrees. As for the trackpad, it is quite sized, combined with an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard without a network with large keys and 1 mm of travel, reminiscent of the XPS 13 Plus.

The screen, meanwhile, should be quite large and immersive. Dell uses a 13-inch 3:2 aspect ratio 3K panel with a resolution of 2880 x 1920, with a peak brightness of 500 nits. This is very different from the 16:10 seen on the XPS 13 Plus (and the standard XPS model), with 3:2 being better for media consumption.

At the top of the screen is a 5-megapixel webcam, a huge plus in an age when most laptops are still stuck on 720p webcams. You’ll also find an 11-megapixel 4K webcam on the back for capturing documents and other world-facing objects.

The screen is even supported by a new Dell XPS stylus, which magnetically attaches to the top of the tablet to charge it with up to 50 days of battery life. However, unlike the Surface Pen and other stylus options, this one has a reversible design for both left- and right-handed use. It comes with 4,096 points of pressure sensitivity and has tilt functionality, but it will be sold separately.

The XPS 13 2-in-1 is powered by Intel’s 12th Gen U-series processor. This includes configurations with the Core i5-1230U or Core i7-1250U. Memory options are 8GB or 16GB, and storage options include 256GB, 512GB, or a 1TB SSD.

Built-in ports are limited to two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports. Dell includes a USB-C to USB-A adapter in the box, as well as a headphone adapter, as no headphone jack is included.

Dell hasn’t shared pricing details for the new XPS 13 2-in-1. It’s slated for release in summer 2022, and Dell promises that a price closer to availability will be confirmed.
