Display and Features
For the display, Dell relies on a 13-inch touchscreen in 3:2 format with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,920 pixels. It achieves a maximum brightness of 500 nits and is therefore certified according to VESA DisplayHDR 400.
Additionally, the sRGB color space is covered at 100%, while the contrast ratio is specified at 1,800:1. The screen is also protected against scratches by Gorilla Glass Victus, supports Dolby Vision and Eyesafe technology.
The separately available XPS Pen, which greatly facilitates typing, is also supported as an option. Windows 11 is used as the operating system, possibly in the Home or Pro variant.
The battery capacity is 49.5 Wh and it is charged via USB Type-C using the included 45 watt power adapter. There is also optional 5G connectivity, otherwise Intel Killer Wi Fi 6E 1675 (AX211) (2×2) and Bluetooth 5.2 are available as wireless standards.
Additionally, there are speakers that are claimed to achieve studio quality according to the manufacturer and support MaxxAudio Pro as well as Waves Nx 3D Audio. A dual array of microphones also promises good intelligibility during video conferences and phone calls.
