Dell XPS 15 9500 and XPS 17 9700 versions are probably this year’s most awaited laptops. Although the official announcement has yet to be made, both refreshed versions were accidentally leaked via the official Dell website. The product listings on the site revealed descriptions of the Dell XPS 15 9500 and XPS 17 9700, both of which tend to have thin bezels, and will offer enhanced performance through new 10th Intel Core processors. Also seen are the latest Dell XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptops with new speaker positioning that could help provide a better audio experience compared with their predecessors.
The product details for both the XPS 15 9500 and XPS 17 9700 models were briefly carried on the Dell France website. Although the listings were removed shortly but not before some visitors found them, folks at Notebookcheck were able to compile all the data, thanks to some Reddit users who posted images from the official website.
Dell XPS 15 9500 expected specifications
As per the information recently obtained from the product pages, the Dell XPS 15 9500 will be making its debut with a list of design changes to suit what we saw earlier this year on the XPS 13 2020. The latest model will appear to be measuring 13.6×9.1×0.7 inches and weighing 4 pounds (about 1.81 kilograms). This means it will be more lightweight and smaller in size and lighter in weight than the current XPS 15, which measures 14.1×9.3×0.7 inches and tips the scales to 4.5 pounds (about 2.04 kilograms).
Apart from the refreshed dimensions and weight, the Dell XPS 15 9500 will also feature a 15.6-inch display (1920×1200 pixels) with 100 percent sRGB rating and 500 nits of brightness. Customers will also get another option with a touchscreen of 15.6-inch, 3840×2400-pixels if we believe the information mentioned above. The notebook is presented using up to Intel Core i9-10885H CPU, up to 64 GB RAM, and up to 2 TB SSD storage. Packaging of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics is also planned.
Design-wise, the photos on the Dell France site allegedly indicated that the new laptop would maintain the carbon-fiber plate. Even the speakers are seen going up to the roof.
