Although its high-end variant is also available in black — unlike the XPS 15 9570 laptop — and features an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8705G processor, the XPS 15 9575 convertible only comes with 16 GB of soldered memory, so there is no upgrade option available. Fortunately, Frank Azor has just confirmed that a 32 GB variant should arrive in the last part of the year.

The Dell XPS 15 9575 convertible might be featuring the new Intel Core i7-8705G processor with Radeon Vega M discrete graphics on a single chip, but it also comes with something that some users consider to be a major design flaw — soldered memory. At this moment, the most powerful configuration only sports 16 GB of memory, which is definitely not enough for some content creators.

Now, the good news is that Frank Azor has just confirmed the arrival of a 32 GB XPS 15 9575 variant. Sadly, there is also a bad part, especially for those in a hurry: according to Alienware's co-founder, the new hardware setup will arrive in the last quarter of the year. The reason for this is that Dell is currently "waiting on the memory to become available," so it should be obvious that the 32 GB XPS 15 9575 will also come with non-upgradeable memory.

The four Dell XPS 15 9575 configurations available for purchase from Dell US right now start at US$1,299.99 (Intel Core i5-8305G, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB M.2 2280 SATA SSD), going up to US$2,049.99 (currently discounted from US$2,199.99) for the model with Intel Core i7-8705G, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB M.2 2280 PCIe SSD, 4K touchscreen display, and a black color option. The other two variants come with the same i5 and i7 processors mentioned above, 8 GB RAM, and a 256 GB PCIe SSD.

Are you one of those who purchased the Dell XPS 15 9575 already or one of those still waiting for more flexible hardware options? If you already got one, please share your thoughts with us in the comments section. If not, you might want to check the video review below.

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.
