Frank Azor already revealed that the Dell XPS 15 9570 will not get any updates by the end of the year. However, when asked about a thinner model, he simply said that he can't comment on announced products and his answer makes us believe that such an update is, in fact, going to arrive the next year.

Those waiting for the Dell XPS 15 9580 will have to wait for a little longer because there is no official confirmation of such a notebook yet. However, Frank Azor already mentioned that the Dell XPS 15 9570 will not get any hardware updates in 2018. On the other hand, he also made us believe that some changes — or maybe an entirely new generation — will come in 2019.

On September 10, a Twitter user known as Eric Pan asked the following question: "When will you guys refresh the XPS 15 size like they did with the XPS 13. MBP is significantly thinner." One day later, he returned and said that Frank Azor avoided his question or the XPS 15 9570 refresh is simply not in the works. The answer of Alienware's co-founder arrived the same day and says the following: "I can't comment on unannounced products.  I already posted that there are no more updates coming to XPS 15 this year.  That's the best I can tell you at this time."

Other than the above, there is not much to say about the Dell XPS 15 9570, which has proven to be a very popular notebook over the last few months. Obviously, if you have something to say about this machine — good or bad, of course — the comments section below is all yours. 

P.S. No, the reviews of the high-end Dell XPS 15 9570 models with Intel Core i7-8750H and Intel Core i9-8950HK are not available yet, so please keep an eye on us and do not ask about this now.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
