In order reduce the size further, Dell shaved off the side bezels of the display down to just 4mm on each side. This increases the screen-to-body ratio of the display to an impressive 80.7%. The placement of the camera is now in the bottom center which now supports Windows Hello IR camera.

Despite that, the size and layout of the keyboard remained the same. Aside from the white and carbon colors, a new rose gold color was also introduced. As expected, the new Dell XPS 13 looks gorgeous, especially the alpine white color.

There are 3 Type-C ports — one supports USB 3.1 while the two others are Thunderbolt 3. That’s paired with a 3.5mm audio port and a microSD card reader. The Type-C ports have DC-in support so you can charge via the standard adaptor or easily charge via a capable powerbank with USB Type-C cable.

The old battery indicator is present as well.

The keyboard layout is the same familiar one. Very easy and comfortable to type with, and so is the trackpad. The palm rests are no longer the rubber-like coating from the old model but are more polished with a glass weave design.
