Dell has unveiled a new XPS 13 option with an OLED touchscreen that is available for purchase today. The feature will cost an extra $300 over FHD models.
The latest version of the XPS 13 (known as the 9310 model) is also considered one of the best lightweight laptops, weighing just 1.2kg. Compared to the XPS 13 9300 version launched earlier in 2020, the new model is built on the Intel Evo platform, using Intel’s 11th Gen processors (up to i7) and Iris X graphics.
While the 4K Ultra HD+ display option offers more resolution, this OLED solution is likely to appeal film fans, as well as image and video editors, looking to achieve more accurate content. While the 4k version is brighter at 500-nits, it lacks the contrast or color gamut of the OLED.
The new 13.4-inch InfinityEdge OLED screen has a 3.5k (3456×2160) resolution. Sticking with the 16:10 aspect, this provides 100,000:1 contrast ratio and a wide color gamut to deliver deeper blacks and more vivid colors. It also offers 400-nit brightness and an anti-reflective, anti-smudge surface.
Dell also announced a number of new additions to its lower-priced Inspiron line. These include an Inspiron 14 2-in-1 that will support both Intel 11th-Gen and AMD Ryzen 5000 mobile processors, and Inspiron 16 Plus workstation with a 3K 16:10 display. The Inpsiron 14 2-in-1 will be available in North America on May 4th starting at $729; the Inspiron 16 Plus hits shelves on June 3rd starting at $949.99.
