Dell XPS 13 2-in-1: Everything you need to know

Dell’s XPS lineup is one of the most popular laptop series on the market, and for good reason. The Dell XPS 13 is a popular clamshell and 2-in-1 laptop. Dell’s latest XPS 13 2-in-1 is a tablet with a detachable keyboard, a rival to the Surface Pro 8.

It’s the first XPS-branded tablet, a radical change for the lineup. New form factor changes display, internals, and more. Let’s dive right into the XPS 13 2-in-1 20222. This new Windows tablet could be one of the best on the market.

Availability

Dell announced the XPS 13 2-in-1 (2022) on June 9, but it’s not yet available. We don’t know when Dell will launch in the summer.

Due to supply constraints, tech products tend to launch gradually and late. This longer wait should ensure that the laptop launches on time and with all configurations.

Form Factor

The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is no longer a traditional convertible with a 360-degree hinge. Now it’s a tablet with a detachable keyboard. The keyboard is part of the XPS Folio cover, which protects the device and acts as a kickstand.

The XPS Folio cover’s kickstand only has three angles instead of being infinitely adjustable. It may be less comfortable than a laptop keyboard. This makes the tablet lighter, so it’s easier to carry and hold if you just want to use it as a tablet. This design comes in Sky and Slate.

This new design lacks a headphone jack. The XPS 13 Plus, 2-in-1, and standard XPS 13 do not have a headphone jack. The XPS 13 2-in-1 ships with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter.

The XPS 13 2-in-1 is the first Dell tablet to support 5G cellular networks. You can connect to the internet almost anywhere without Wi-Fi. This change makes sense given the new XPS 13 2-in-1’s portable design.

Intel 5000 5G modem powers 5G, which is only available in Slate. Sky only supports Wi-Fi.

The Dell XPS lineup’s display aspect ratio is 16:10, which is becoming more common for clamshell and convertible laptops. Dell’s tablet has a 3:2 aspect ratio, like Microsoft’s Surface devices. XPS 13 2-in-1’s display is similar to Surface Pro X’s.

13-inch “3K” panel with 2880 x 1920 resolution. The display has up to 500 nits of brightness and an 1800:1 contrast ratio. 500 nits of brightness, DiusplayHDR 400, Dolby Vision, and 100% sRGB. It supports touch and pen input with the separate Dell XPS Stylus.

The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has two cameras, a Dell first. First, the primary webcam is now a 5MP sensor supporting 1080p video, making it the only XPS laptop with a 1080p webcam. Dell split the IR sensor from the main RGB sensor to improve calls and meetings.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 : Cameras

The XPS 13 2-in-1 has a rear-facing camera so it can record videos. This 11MP camera records 4K video. We’ve never seen a laptop camera with a higher resolution, so it should be good.

The latest Intel processors are the most anticipated upgrade. That means 12th-generation processors, which mix performance (P) and efficient (E) cores. This results in 10 cores and 12 threads total. Depending on how the cores are used, it can increase battery efficiency.

This upgrade isn’t simple. Previous XPS 13 2-in-1 models used 15W TDP Intel U-series processors. This year, Dell chose Intel’s 9W processors instead. These processors use less power, which improves battery life but reduces performance. It can make a big difference, especially with Iris Xe graphics clock speed. Getting a smaller size may require this sacrifice.
