The next Dell XPS 15 model will sport Intel’s Kaby Lake family of processors and also a GeForce GTX 1050 processor and up to 32GB of RAM. The laptop is likely to be unveiled at CES 2017 at the start of next year.


The Dell XPS 15 is among the most popular laptops on the market. The PC is due for an upgrade and today the US company accidentally revealed the specs of the refreshed device. As this was a clear mistake, Dell acted quickly and removed the leak.

However, the folks at Windows Central managed to see the listing before it was pulled. The new model Dell XPS 15 will be powered by the Intel Kaby Lake processor family. There will be several configurations, with customers able to choose between the i3-7100HQ, i5-7300HQ, and i7-7700HQ chips.

Other key specs include a 4K and configuration up to 32GB of 2133MHz RAM memory. Graphics will be taken care of through a GeForce GTX 1050 with 4GB of VRAM, and a 1TB HDD or SSD will handle the storage.

Dell will likely have a presence at the event and there will be surprises if the XPS 15 is unveiled. However, if it is announced, it may not come to the market until early in the second quarter.
