Everyone wants to give Microsoft Surface a run for its money. First it was Apple’s iPad Pro. Then it was Google’s Pixel C. And now, it’s Dell’s XPS 12 4K Windows tablet.
The Dell XPS 12 4K device is a 2-in-1 tablet-PC hybrid that flaunts a 12.5-inch display. It is said to run on Intel’s Skylake Core M chip, details about processor speed is still unknown. It is also said to have an 8-megapixel camera at the back, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Dell XPS 12 tablet is rumored to come in two variants; the first offers a massive 4K Ultra HD display with a 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution. The second, an affordable option, comes with a 1080p screen.
Let’s not forget that the Dell XPS 12 tablet is a hybrid device, which means there’s a keyboard somewhere. Actually there are two keyboards to choose from. The first is a very light and thin 1.3mm keyboard, while the second is a much larger full-key option with backlight, integrated glass trackpad, an HDMI port, and two Thunderbolt 3-enabled USB Type-C ports. Basically, with this keyboard, the Dell XPS 12 tablet becomes a laptop.
Other specifications include an SD card reader, Dell Active Pen compatibility, Bluetooth 4.1, 4GB/8GB of RAM, and a 30Wh battery, all enclosed in a magnesium alloy case.
If all the rumored specifications are true, then the iPad Pro, the Pixel C, and even the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 4, may all have some tough competition to deal with.
The Dell XPS 12 4K tablet is expected to be announced during the Dell World 2015 event in October.
