No Dell XPS 16 2-in-1 means the Inspiron 16 7620 2-in-1 is the next best thing for now
The Dell Inspiron 16 7620 2-in-1 was recently made available to succeed the last generation Inspiron 16 7610 series. Unlike most other convertibles, it uniquely carries 12th gen Intel Core i7-1255U and Core i7-1260P CPU options alongside an optional discrete GeForce MX550 GPU. Even its 16.0-inch 16:10 1200p display is able to offer >95 percent sRGB coverage at the minimum with an option to upgrade to 2400p OLED for DCI-P3 coverage. The display in particular could have have probably worked just as well on a hypothetical XPS 16 2-in-1 as it is of higher quality than the displays on most budget to midrange multimedia machines. If you ever wanted an XPS 16 2-in-1, then this Inspiron can offer a visual experience that we think can come pretty close.
Of course, there are a number of hurdles to the Inspiron 16 7620 2-in-1 that separate it from the flagship XPS series. For one, it is very heavy even for its large 16-inch form factor as the LG Gram 16 2-in-1 is over half a kilogram lighter. Secondly, any XPS 15 or XPS 16 model will likely be using higher-performance Core H-series CPUs instead of the Core U-series or Core P-series. GeForce RTX options will likely be favored over MX options as well. If Dell can shrink the Inspiron chassis and boost the CPU and GPU options while keeping the same IPS and OLED panels, then we would essentially have an XPS 16 analogue on our hands.
