Dell XPS 12
Designed for brilliance
Innovative and elegant 2-in-1
State of the art viewing experience
The innovative and versatile design of the XPS 12
allows for easy transition from laptop to tablet.
Unlike other detachables, the XPS 12 connects via
magnets, so it’s free of mechanical parts and is
easy to detach with only one hand. Simply lift out
the tablet and take it with you, or place it back in a
cradle for notebook productivity. And your XPS 12
flips seamlessly from tablet to laptop by
automatically detecting whether a keyboard is
attached. With Continuum from Windows 10, your
menus and taskbars automatically adjust to your
device for a smooth experience.
Enjoy eye-popping clarity and detail with an
UltraSharp™ 4K Ultra HD display, the first of its
kind in a 2-in-1. It boasts an incredible eight
million pixels at 352 PPI. That is six million more
pixels than an FHD and seven times that of an HD
display. High resolution means, whatever you are
doing, your image is precise and clear. With IPS
wide-viewing angles, you can enjoy 170° views on
a brilliantly bright, 400-nit screen. High color
gamut and contrast ratio provide rich color.
Movies come to life. Presentations shine. And
photos can be edited with pinpoint precision. And
edge-to-edge Corning® Gorilla Glass NBT™ is 10
times as scratch resistant than soda lime glass,
preventing scuffs caused by handling, cleaning or

Get productive with a choice of XPS 12 keyboards,
which provide a traditional keyboard experience
when you need more productivity than a tablet
can provide. The tablet plus Premier Keyboard

backlit keyboard and precision touchpad.
Larger than life tablet
A substantial 12.5-inch 4K Ultra HD display makes
the XPS 12 the ultimate tablet experience. Shop,
surf and browse your photos or playlist with ease.
And, with the optional Dell Active Pen, take notes
or sketch effortlessly with Microsoft® OneNote in
one click or capture content in only two clicks.
Jot down your ideas, take notes, sketch or draw
with Wacom Bamboo Paper. Or use Microsoft
Edge browser’s technology to let you write or type
directly on web pages and share them.

facing camera for a crystal clear web-chatting
experience. Additionally, there is an 8MP world
facing camera for taking high res photos and
videos with your tablet.

which is the newest generation of Type-C
connectivity, enabling up to 8x the transfer speeds
of USB 3.0 at up to 40Gbps, and it is twice as fast
