You can always count on Evan Blass to spill the beans on all of the latest, unreleased smartphones and he has come through again with our best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S8. The leaked press render gives us a clear look at the front of the device and its clear lack of a Home button. We can also see minimal bezels all around along with a bevy of sensors in the top bezel of the phone, which should encompass everything from the ambient light sensor to the front-facing camera to the iris scanner (first seen on the Galaxy Note 7, RIP). No additional details were provided with the image, although we can clearly see on the lock screen Samsung’s planned March 29th announcement date for its flagship... Read more...
Mechanically speaking, Dell has done little to change or update the company's wildly popular XPS 13 and 15 series of premium consumer notebooks since their initial release. There's no mystery as to why that is the case, however. When something works this well, you stick with it. The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 have been two of the best selling notebooks in the company's history. That's a bold statement and it stands to reason. The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 line of machines, with their unique Infinity Edge displays and gorgeous carbon fiber and aluminum adorned chassis, are some of the best looking, best built, and highest performing laptops on the market. However, despite minimal exterior design changes,... Read more...
If you’re a regular reader of HotHardware, then you know that we think highly of Dell’s XPS 13 ultrabook. The XPS 13 manages to cram a 13.3-inch IPS display into a 11-inch notebook frame, thanks to its tantalizing Infinity Edge design (which minimizes display bezel). We liked the XPS 13 enough to give it our Editor’s Choice award. However, the folks at Dell aren’t standing still when it comes to upgrading this ultrabook and the company has now equipped it Intel 7th Gen Kaby Lake Core Series processors to improve performance and further bolster battery life. Base systems come equipped with an Intel Core i3-7100U processor, while mid-range systems can be optioned with a Core i5-7200U. Those... Read more...
Update 4/26/2016: We've refreshed our battery life test suite for this review and have new, more real-world metrics to share on page 8. When Dell launched its updated XPS 13 notebook with an Infinity Edge display that squeezes a 13 inch IPS panel into essentially a 12-inch frame, it was met with universal praise for its unique mechanical design advantages and premium build quality. In fact, it was so well-received that many of you, upon seeing our review, almost immediately started asking if Dell would follow-up with the same sort of revamp for their 15-inch XPS 15 line as well. Dell apparently already had the same idea in mind and clearly the new XPS 15, with its 15-inch Infinity Edge display,... Read more...
Dell recently refreshed its popular XPS 13 with new hardware to bring it up to date with current CPU and storage offerings.  The updated model now sports a Skylake-based Intel processor and a Samsung PM951 NVMe solid state drive, plus a few minor tweaks to its already impressive design.  When the current iteration of the Dell XPS 13 debuted back in January of last year, it was nearly unrivaled in terms of its power to size ratio, and overall value in the space. The ultrabook market has heated-up a lot since then though, and the XPS 13 has some stiff competition at the moment. In addition to checking out Dell's tiny powerhouse, we should also mention Intel's SpeedShift technology, available... Read more...
There’s no doubt that we at HotHardware were rather impressed with the 2015 XPS 13 when it debuted earlier this year, enough so to give it our Editor’s Choice award. Dell managed to cram a 13.3-inch 3200x1800 QHD+ display with edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass -- or in Dell parlance, an InfinityEdge display – into a 12-inch frame.  If you've seen this display in the flesh, you'll note that the top and side edge bezels of the display are near non-existant. Dell has now brought that same beautiful InfinityEdge display technology to its larger XPS 15, which the company boasts has the same footprint as a 14-inch notebook. But Dell didn’t just stay the course by using the QHD+ resolution from the smaller... Read more...
