Bold and Beautiful in Berlin: Dell’s New Consumer PC Portfolio Unveiled at IFA 2019

By Ray Wah, Senior Vice President, Consumer and Small Business Product Group, Dell

We’re back in the thick of European conference season. From Gamescom in Cologne to IFA 2019 in Berlin, Dell Technologies has exciting news coming out of both shows!

IFA is the largest consumer tech show in Europe and we expect to see significant news from 4K and OLED TVs to wearables to smartphones. We’ll be showcasing our latest PCs, of course, as the move to thin and light continues across the industry. It’s not only about smaller form factors though – consumers want adaptive, always connected, high-performing, and flawlessly designed PCs and Dell continues to set the bar for the PC industry.

Ahead of IFA, we’re expanding our consumer portfolio with brand new form factors and the addition of new 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors to our current XPS and Inspiron portfolio delivering performance gains needed for compute intensive, demanding multi-thread workloads, while still handling 4K content efficiently. And in doing so, giving our customers heavyweight performance in thin, light and portable designs — the best of both worlds.

We’ve taken our most beloved and awarded product, the XPS 13, or “the best laptop you can buy,” and made it even better. Available 27th August, we’ve added Intel 10th Gen Core™ U series processors — with i7 hexacore models available in October — in our existing beautiful form factor, helping the XPS 13 maintain its position as the most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class1. Whether you’re a binge watcher or the busy mobile pro on the go, we’ve created the XPS 13 to be one of a kind. With the new Killer™ AX1650 (2×2) built on Intel WiFi 6 Chipset, wireless connectivity is three times as fast as the previous generation. Along with Dell CinemaColour and Dolby Vision and an optional 4K Ultra HD InfinityEdge display, the XPS 13 will remain eye candy for those glued to their screen. Available with either Windows 10 or Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, the latter which serves as the foundation of the XPS 13 developer edition, now in its 9th generation2.

And in case you missed it, the XPS 13 2-in-1, a COMPUTEX d&i Award winner, is now available for purchase. This 2-in-1 is a symbol of our meticulous attention to detail where every decision was driven by customer benefits and a mission to achieve a flawless design. The 2-in-1 is the world’s first Project Athena-verified laptop available with Intel’s new 10th Gen Core™, 10-nanometer silicon processors.

Immersive experiences continue with Dell Cinema and Dell Mobile Connect



Dell’s commitment to thoughtful design and truly immersive cinematic experiences on the PC continues with this generation of new products. Launched at CES 2018, Dell Cinema is the combination of several cutting-edge technologies all working in concert to give the viewer an immersive, captivating experience on their PCs. Dell Cinema is available across the XPS portfolio and new Inspiron products starting this autumn.

* CinemaColor: a collection of technologies that deliver richer, more vibrant color & details to the screen. * CinemaSound: delivers a dynamic soundstage to customers with MaxxAudio ProR, an intelligent audio enhancement solution that boosts volume and clarifies every tone that creates studio quality sound. * CinemaStream: an enhanced video streaming experience enabled by Dell-exclusive technologies that allow users to prioritize streaming and interactive video content, resulting in a smooth, stable video experience and less buffering.

Also introduced at CES 2018 is Dell Mobile Connect – an award-winning software designed to provide complete wireless integration between your Dell PC and smartphone, enabling users to, for example, receive a phone-call, send text messages, or book an Uber from your desktop without digging into your pocket for your phone, and distracting you from your tasks at hand.

Today, Dell Mobile Connect is the only iPhone to PC integration solution available for consumer PCs*, and coming this autumn, we’re releasing a new update to Dell Mobile Connect that brings a new level of iOS-PC integration that even Apple does not provide between iPhones and Macs.
