Is an LTE version of the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 possible?

While the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 may get a version in the future that has LTE, it's not very likely. The only devices in Dell's lineup that have LTE connectivity are their Latitude models, and that hasn't changed for a significant amount of time.

Why you should still get the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1

The absence of LTE in the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is unfortunate, but the device makes up for it in several other ways. The best thing about the latest Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 model is that you can get it with a crisp, gorgeous 4K display that will elevate your experience with the laptop to an entirely different level. In addition to the killer screen, you also get to choose from one of three of Intel's new 10th Generation 10nm processors for your CPU, and the device also comes with Intel UHD Graphics and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, making it a powerhouse ultrabook. When you factor in that the laptop is razor-thin and light a feather, too, it's easy to see why the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is a fantastic device.

What if you really want LTE?

If your heart is truly set on having LTE, than we recommend checking out the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. It isn't quite as impressive as the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 since it's CPU options max out at an Intel Core i7-8665U, but it does come with the same amount of RAM and graphics power, and you can also get it with a 4K display, too. You'll have to pay extra for access to LTE functionality, but if you want something that's nearly as awesome as the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 that also has LTE, it doesn't get any better than the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
