New Dell XPS laptop & Lenovo Laptop, Arriving June containing IceLake confirmed

By Subhajit Ghosh

At CES 2019, the President of the Client Solutions Group at Dell, Sam Burd, hinted about a new XPS laptop containing Intel’s upcoming 10nm IceLake processor. Not much was revealed at that point, but a recent interview enlightened us with more facts. During the interview, Sam Burd confirmed that the laptop will be officially revealed this summer, and is expected to hit the shelves by Christmas. We’re most likely going to see a full reveal, either during the Computex showcase or the IFA trade show in Berlin. At this point, we’re not too sure whether the laptop is going to be an entirely new XPS device or just a minor refresh. More information should surface with time.

After facing several difficulties with making a switch to 10-nanometer architecture, Intel had promised to deliver near the end of 2019. That plan seems to have been preponed according to recently leaked Lenovo documents that claim we might be receiving the 10nm Intel IceLake processors as early as June. While there’s no confirmation to this leak, it does seem very reasonable considering Dell also announced their 10nm XPS laptops with a mid 2019 release date.


From the documents that were leaked on Reddit we can see that a refresh for the X1 Yoga series includes the Intel IceLake i5 and i7 versions which will arrive on June 2019. Seemingly these processors will also be boasting Intel’s new Gen11 Integrated Graphics that we recently covered leaks of. It’s also quite evident that there will be a supply shortage of these IceLake processors since the rest of the models including T series, L series and the P1 line-up will be equipped with either Whiskey Lake or Coffee lake processors.
