Dell has adhered closely to the same design for its XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop for years. That’s all about to change, as the 2022 model is getting a major redesign.

The new and improved XPS 13 2-in-1 is being reborn as a tablet. That means the XPS Folio keyboard case can “magically” connect to your tablet to turn it into something more like a laptop. With the folio attached, you can customize the XPS 13 2-in-1’s tilt the way you like.

You can adjust the 13.3-inch touchscreen to three angles (100, 112.5, and 125 degrees), and you can attach the XPS Stylus (sold separately) to the top of the laptop to charge.

A full charge on the stylus nets you about 50 days of use. You’ll have to buy the stylus separately, though.

Perhaps most interestingly, this new overhaul will herald Dell’s first XPS model to offer optional 5G connectivity. You can choose between both Wi-Fi or 5G options, both in different hues.

As far as specs go, the XPS 13 2-in-1 has a base configuration with up to an Intel Core i7-1250U with eight efficiency cores at 0.8-3.5 GHz and two performance cores at 1.1-4.7 GHz. You can choose configurations with up to 16GB of LPDDR RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD.

Yes, there are cameras, of course, and it doesn’t seem that Dell has cheaped out on them. The front-facing webcam packs a high-res 1080p punch and a 4K rear webcam for snapping photos.

As far as ports go, you get dual Thunderbolt 4 ports in terms of connectivity, and USB-C to USB-A as well as USB-C to 3.5mm adapters with the tablet.

Does the Dell XPS 3-in-1 sound like it’s in your wheelhouse? It’s coming out this summer, though there’s no pricing or release date information just yet.
