While the rest of the world still waits, China has become the first country where the long-awaited XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 has gone on sale. Prices start at 12,999 CNY (~US$1,850) for the Core i5-1035G1 model and rise to 16,999 CNY (~US$2,419) for the Core i7-1065G7 version. No Core i7-1068G7 SKU or simultaneous worldwide release as Dell previously promised though.

The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 may still have no worldwide release date, but the device is now orderable in China, specifically Dell's Chinese website. The listing, spotted by u/Edoars on Reddit, currently contains five SKUs that range from 12,999 CNY (~US$1,850) to 16,999 CNY (~US$2,419), although Dell is currently offering 1,000 CNY (~US$142) off every XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 purchase.

Model number CPU RAM Storage Display
R1505TW Intel Core i5-1035G1 8 GB 256 GB FHD+ (1080p) touchscreen
R1705TB Intel Core i5-1035G1 16 GB 512 GB FHD+ (1080p) touchscreen

R1805TW Intel Core i7-1065G7 16 GB 512 GB UHD+ (4K) touchscreen

We cannot see any difference between the R1805TB and R1805TW, although we cannot select the former to order it. Hence, there currently appears to be a mistake in the listing. However, this does not appear to be a soft or accidental launch by Dell China, with the base model currently featuring on the front page of its website.

Previously, Dell has stated that the XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 would "be available in all regions at the same time" and that the "Core i7-1068G7 will be an option". Understandably, this has left people online confused, with these statements not ringing true with the timing of the Chinese release or the SKUs that have launched. We shall keep you updated with XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 release news as and when we are informed.
