While the iPad Pro and the Microsoft Surface Pro series already have a huge following due to the hype that the rumor mill has created for them till the day they get unveiled and released in the market, Dell is silently working on a competitor that could crush these two in the large, multi-purpose tablet realm. Techies have not seen the last of Dell's XPS 12 since Dell is reportedly working on a successor that is twice as gorgeous and twice as powerful than it's old self.
The Round Rock, Texas-headquartered computer technology company is said to be in the process of silently creating a powerful tablet convertible, according to The Market Business. This week, some slides on the upcoming product got leaked and it seems that Dell has got something that can take the tablet market by storm. However, for the lack of better things to call the product, it is currently being referred to as the XPS 12, but it definitely does not take after its same named predecessor.
Dell's new XPS 12 actually has that look that is pretty similar to Microsoft's successful Surface Pro line. For its specs and features, the new XPS 12 is basically a large tablet which comes with a standalone keyboard that magnetically latches onto the main device. So, technically, when the tablet and the keyboard are used together, the setup looks just like that of the Surface Pro and not so much of the iPad Pro when it stands with its custom keyboard.
Dell promises that its new tablet will give consumers the best 2-in-1 experience since its keyboard comes with illumination technology and it has a touchpad that is said to work flawlessly, which could threaten the Surface Pro since its keyboards have not really delivered efficient and flawless functionality, as per The Verge.
Dell is also determined to lure many consumers with the promising hardware specs of the XPS 12. The display of the device is an outstanding "color-accurate 4K touchscreen" and it has this super-thin bezel it appears as though it's almost bezel-less, adding more to the face value and the charm of the tablet convertible.
The new XPS 12 from Dell is also reportedly sporting a Thunderbolt 3 connector, and it is also expected to come with a sharp 8-megapixel back shooter and a 5-megapixel front-facing one. No word on the RAM, built-in storage and processor of the device as of late.
According to Engadget, interested consumers will get the chance to see Dell's new XPS 12's big reveal and release next month. More news about the upcoming device will arrive in the coming days, so stay tuned.
