Dell XPS 13 Plus Laptop Featuring Qualcomm Snapdragon X SoC Leaked In Detail

Dell is gearing up to release its XPS 13 Plus laptop, internally known as TributoQC, as a successor to the TributoRPL model, utilizing Intel Raptor Lake architecture. While Dell has already introduced the XPS 13 laptop featuring Meteor Lake architecture, the Plus version is aimed at a more budget-friendly and energy-efficient market segment. Notably, the document refers to Qualcomm chips as Nuvia, as Qualcomm had yet to formally announce the Snapdragon X series at the time these slides were created.

According to leaked slides, the XPS 13 is expected to incorporate Snapdragon chips with 10 and 12-core configurations, boasting a maximum TDP of 25.5W. Although the laptop’s size remains unchanged, it will reportedly be slightly lighter, weighing 2.67 lbs compared to the previous 2.7 lbs. The system will retain its 13.4-inch screen, which will undergo an update; however, the resolution of the flagship OLED panel will surprisingly decrease from 3.5K to 2.8K.

The latest addition is the utilization of LPDDR5X-8400 memory, now standard at 16GB (previously 8GB for Intel). According to documents, this laptop will also be available with 32GB and even 64GB options. While storage options remain unchanged, there’s a notable inclusion of a new Full-HD Camera.

Dell targets a $1199 price tag for this laptop, although this estimate dates back to mid-2023. It’s important to note that cost and retail price differ, and the latter hasn’t been confirmed. However, if the laptop launches at this price, it would be $800 less than the Apple MacPro M1 and align with the pricing of the MacBook Air M2. The company plans to manufacture 241,000 units of this laptop, with a scheduled release in June of this year.
