If you're eagerly awaiting a refresh of the Dell XPS 15 notebook, it looks like Dell has accidentally let the cat out of the bag. As spotted by the site, Dell briefly posted the specs of an upcoming XPS 15 refresh by accident, revealing some tantalizing details.

Dell accidentally reveals refreshed XPS 15 with GTX 1050 graphics

According to the listing on Dell's site, the XPS 15 9560 will predictably be updated with Kaby Lake CPUs (i3-7100HQ, i5-7300HQ or i7-7700HQ), and will feature a 4K (3840x2160) display. More interestingly, the listing points to a GTX 1050 with 4GB of VRAM. Though we haven't seen the full specs of the mobile GTX 1050, it's likely to add a bit of graphical oomph to the XPS 15.

The laptop will also support up to 32GB of 2133MHz memory and up to 1TB of storage space with either a traditional hard drive or optional SSD. Lastly, it looks like the XPS 15 will sport a Killer 1535 Wireless-AC card like the XPS 13, so Wi-Fi should perform admirably.

Update: Also noted is the an "optional fingerprint reader and Windows Hello" support finally (finally!) coming for bioauthentication

Though the listing still exists, the description has since been pulled. Luckily, you can access an archived version of the listing with all of the details that have been pulled from the page still intact.

We should hear something more official from Dell about the XPS 15 9560 soon — likely around CES 2017 in January. In the meantime, let us know if you're planning to pick one up based on these early specs, or if something else has caught your eye.
