Dell has launched the XPS 13 9300 and XPS 15 9500 in India. The XPS 13 9300 was first launched globally early this year at CES 2020. The XPS 15 9500, on the other hand, was launched in May. While XPS 13 is nearly six months old, the XPS 15 is a brand new device. With XPS 13 and XPS 15, Dell has trimmed the bezels to a bare minimum. In fact, the company has gone as far as to shave the bottom bezel as well. This allows for a laptop with not only big display but a smaller form factor.
