An Intel teaser video leaked on Twitter has revealed that Dell may possibly have a new 2021 model of the XPS 13 laptop.
Although the XPS 13 is never mentioned by name, the nearly 50-second-long clip provides a visual focus on laptops with four-sided slim bezels and a carbon fiber keyboard as well as a silver chassis. The segment showcases some of the new Xe, and branding for Intel’s Tiger Lake CPUs on Core i7 stickers and laptops, highlighted with the “11th Gen Intel Core Processor” displayed on the screen.

Knowing those visual acquaintances about this year’s Bezel-less XPS 13 design, it could possibly be a refreshed XPS 13 model in the video. Therefore, instead of the redesigned laptop, the focus can be switched to the Tiger Lake processor for the upcoming XPS 13.
Overall, this opens up the chance that Intel can team up with Dell to ensure the XPS 13 as the flagship laptop for its new Tiger Lake processor. The chipmaker promised that its 11th-generation processors would be “more than generational improvements” and highlighted its work to improve integrated graphics, especially when it comes to 1080p light gaming.
This leaked clip also has the same “redefining performance for real-world needs,” which also confirms. Intel also explains in the video how its new CPUs can “make productivity a breeze” and “accelerated AI for today’s apps”. There is no doubt that the performance gains will be the benefits of this new XPS.
The final XPS 13 model was announced at CES 2020 in January, and Intel promised that this Tiger Lake CPU would be ready before the end of this year. With that timeline in mind, Dell may soon announce this new XPS model, with a launch around January of 2021, with an ad specifically being prepped for it.
It will also be interesting to see if Dell will soon upgrade the XPS 15, and XPS 17 laptops with new processors. It offers Wi-Fi 6, as well as Thunderbolt 4 support. Both of these features are desired by creators who often sport Dell’s XPS products.
