Dell have unveiled the new 4K tablet Dell XPS 12 on their websites over the last 24 hours, ahead of Microsoft’s Windows 10 Device event on October 6.
The new Dell XPS 12 is a 12.5-inch Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet with an optional 4k display. The 12.5-inch screen has a resolution of up to 3840 x 2160, and this is a UltraSharp IGZO display with features such as IPS, Gorilla Glass NBT, and 400 nits brightness. The resolution is almost as high as that of the upcoming 4k Samsung SM-W700.
But the $999 entry level model Dell XPS 12 will have much lower resolution, so the 4k model won’t be cheap when it launches in November.
Dell XPS 12 has features like a 5MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera, a backlit keyboard, 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 for speedy files transfer, USB type-C, a thickness of 8 mm, and a weight of 790 grams for the tablet, or 1270 grams with the keyboard dock.
The processor in this computer is an Intel Core m5 processor (m5-6Y54), while it can be fitted with 4GB to 8GB RAM, and either 128GB or 256GB storage. The price begins at $999.
The 12.3-inch Vaio Z Canvas will be officially released in the US the day before the event.
Windows 10 computers with a 4k display, other than the so far known devices from Dell and Samsung, also include the Toshiba Astrea with the 6th generation Intel Core processor.
