Also introduced is the redesigned XPS 13 2-in-1, which not incorporates a 360-degree hinge. Instead, it ships in a pill type issue, with the choice to purchase an XPS Folio keyboard case and magnetic stylus individually, just like the iPad and Microsoft’s Surface Pro lineup.
It incorporates a 13-inch 2880 x 1920 display with a 3:2 side ratio, optionally available 5G connectivity with eSIM help, and an 11-megapixel rear digicam. Color selections are restricted to Sky and a darker Slate hue. The remainder of the specs are just like the usual XPS 13.
