Dell XPS 15 7590 coming in June: No soldered-on SSD, finally an OLED option, potential for a future Ryzen Zen 2 APU
In one of his typically direct Twitter statements, Frank Azor has confirmed that the Dell XPS 15 7590 will be launched in June. His exact words consisted of “XPS 15 coming at you within the next 2-3 weeks”, which means the laptop should be appearing on Dell’s website in the second half of this month. However, he did not specify if this would be a US-only time-frame or for shipping/availability worldwide.
Although many have been waiting for an OLED panel option for 2018's Dell XPS 15 (9570), it seems it will be the refreshed variant that offers purchasers this particular display choice. There were some concerns that the Dell XPS 15 7590 would feature a soldered-on SSD, but the XPS chief has kindly allayed fears about that, definitively stating that the new XPS 15 laptop will not make users suffer the consequences of having a storage unit they can’t exchange.
An interesting potential future option for the Dell XPS 15 7590 has been brought up by a fellow Tweeter, who asked if the premium laptop will eventually feature Ryzen Zen 2 mobile APUs from AMD when they become available. It seems early days for the Dell executive to be able to answer such a question, but it does seem like a natural match for an XPS 15 to sport a Zen 2 processor. It wasn’t that long ago that Dell announced it was incorporating Zen+ Picasso APUs into Inspiron laptops, so there seems to be no reason why Zen 2 APUs won’t be adopted in the long term (although they may not be based on the Matisse design).
