The new XPS 15 is almost upon us, but there will be no long wait for a 4K OLED option. Dell will bring the 4K OLED model to market on June 27, with the XPS 15 7590 being the first in the series to feature such display technology.

Good news, the XPS 15 7590 will launch with an optional OLED panel. Bad news, the laptop looks set to arrive three days later than we previously thought it would.

The news comes courtesy of Forbes contributor Brooke Crothers, a founding member of CNET and technology reporter for the New York Times. Crothers received the information from a company spokesperson on June 20, who stated that Dell would launch the XPS 15 7590 on Thursday, June 27.

The company will launch the new XPS 15 with the long-awaited OLED option, which it has been promising to bring to its XPS 15 series since the XPS 15 9570. The OLED option will run natively at 3,840 x 2,160 and will cover 100% of the DCI-P3 colour space. Moreover, it will be Dolby Vision certified with Dell promising that it will "deliver highlights up to 40 times brighter and blacks up to 10 times darker" than typical IPS panels.

Speculatively, the OLED panel may have better battery life than its 4K IPS alternative. The former can turn off pixels when showing a black image, which should reduce power consumption compared to IPS panels, which cannot. Lower power consumption should yield better battery life. Theoretically, anyway.

The XPS 15 7590 will start at US$999, although we expect the OLED option to cost significantly more. The June 27 release date will only apply in some markets too, perhaps even just North America.
