DELL XPS 13 Reinvents Itself, Embracing Simplicity as the New Premium

It’s no coincidence the new XPS 13 Plus is our most powerful yet, considering it was inspired by Gen-Z – a group that knows who they are, where they want to go and demands the horsepower they need to get there.

Modern and stylish, yet approachable and efficient – intentional and straightforward is the new definition of premium.

Redesigned from the ground up with more performance than ever before, the XPS 13 Plus makes it so you can do everything you love to do in style.

While beautiful designs and powerful technology innovations are crucial, much more is beneath the surface.

And when it comes to creating your world, a better tomorrow or whatever it is you love to do, there’s no better companion than the XPS 13 Plus.

Meet the new XPS 13 Plus

DELL XPS 13

The XPS 13 Plus is the first XPS 13 designed to a 12th Gen Intel® Core™ 28W processor (up from 15W on the prior gen), supported by more giant fans that provide 55% better airflow without increasing noise or temperature. 

Performance, design and packaging; from top to bottom, we’ve stripped away the unnecessary and streamlined features to deliver a complete, seamless experience. Simplified interiors make your creative experience the focus, with best-in-class edge-to-edge displays that bring your visions to life.

Additionally, leading battery technology makes sure you can go the distance without disruptions. And with Express Charge 2.0 that gets your laptop to about 80% battery life in less than an hour; you can quickly juice up on the fly.

Oh, and did we mention it’s just as light and thin? More power without weighing you down.

Distraction-free, beautifully clean design

Capacitive touch function row, seamless glass touchpad with haptics, and zero-lattice keyboard maximize user interfaces for a streamlined interior design.

The XPS 13 Plus is designed to be minimalist and modern. The sleek keyboard, function row, touchpad and palm rest deliver a clean, iconic appearance that is light to the touch and complemented by curved, comfy edges throughout.

There’s no wasted space – the modern, edge-to-edge interfaces simplify the overall design to deliver a clean, harmonious surface. 

The XPS 13 Plus is available in timeless colors, a light (Platinum) and dark (Graphite) with an enhanced surface finish that is premium and serene.

We’ve eliminated distractions by creating cohesive tone-on-tone design details for a unified appearance.

The overall experience is a modern aesthetic that is intentionally crafted to emanate the pinnacle of simplicity.

Now let’s talk about how it feels. Designed with larger keycaps (also known as zero-lattice), the keyboard is comfortable, smooth and efficient with every keystroke.

In addition, the top row of the keyboard is now cleaner, thanks to a new capacitive touch experience that allows you to switch between media and function keys easily.

And speaking of clean and simplified, the traditional trackpad has been replaced by a seamless glass touchpad that provides haptic responses to the touch. 

Heightened senses for heightened creativity

Up to 4K+ resolution or vivid true-to-life color on an OLED display with Eyesafe® that reduces harmful blue light and an improved quad-speaker design

Senses drive the creative process and we’ve enhanced both sight and sound in the new XPS 13 Plus.

Our pioneering 4-sided InfinityEdge display continues to deliver a virtually borderless viewing experience, and we reduced the number of layers from the display screen to improve clarity and reduce weight.

And when it comes to creating your content or consuming the content you love, enjoy louder sound and broad dynamic range with an improved quad-speaker design. Two up-firing speakers are hidden underneath the keyboard, while down-firing speakers are on the base, resulting in incredible music, movies and conferencing.

Mindful manufacturing and packaging 

First, XPS is made using hydro-power renewable energy sources, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the aluminum and is 100% recyclable so it can be reused in new PCs, delivering on Dell’s 2030 Goals.

Our mindful minimalist approach extends beyond design to encompass the production and packaging processes. We’ve created a more straightforward, more efficient manufacturing process that honors our longstanding commitment to being kind to the environment.

We’ve decreased scrapped parts and our overall carbon footprint by removing steps and reducing finishes and materials – but elevating the ones that remain.

All-new packaging is made from 100% sustainably sourced or renewable materials with paper documentation that increases its recyclability. 

Collaborative and Visual Experience 

1st monitor in its class with IPS Black panel technology. It also features an intelligent webcam with a 4K HDR Sony STARVIS™ CMOS sensor for light adjustments, AI auto framing capability, integrated intelligent security features and enhanced visual clarity.

With the world more digital than ever before, the right collaboration tools are essential. That’s why we continue to invest in the ecosystem around the PC. This newly crowned CES Innovation Award Honoree is the new Dell UltraSharp 32 4K Video Conferencing Monitor. 

Featuring our category-defining UltraSharp Webcam, echo canceling dual-array microphones and 14W speakers, this monitor provides the best collaboration and visual experience possible, making it feel like you’re there in person. 

Groundbreaking IPS Black technology and VESA DisplayHDR 400 lets you view content in greater detail with 4K resolution, contrast and color – while ComfortView Plus reduces harmful blue-light emissions and retains color accuracy. 

Then there are the video conferencing capabilities. The new UltraSharp is certified for Microsoft Teams and comes with privacy and productivity features – letting you quickly come on and off mute, enable/disable the camera with SafeShutter and promptly sign in and out. 

And it looks great too! The sophisticated design with its platinum silver finish complements home and office spaces.

The aesthetics are kept clean to conceal all visible mess without compromising its functionality. Its extensive ports and connectivity options allow you to transform the monitor into a productivity hub.

Finally, there is Dell Migrate, to help you move important and challenging to replace data and files from any Windows-based PC to your new XPS device—so you can get up and running fast.
