In addition to refreshing their XPS 13, Dell has shown a couple of concepts at CES 2020 including their Concept UFO handheld, Concept Duet and Concept Ori.
Dell’s Concept UFO looks like if Dell’s Alienware design team made a PC version of the Nintendo Switch.
It features an 8-inch screen with a resolution of 1900 x 1200 along with detachable controllers. There are a few different modes for the Concept UFO including as one unit with controllers attached, using the controllers separately and the device on its kickstand and the last is to connect it to an external display.
The device would utilize a 10th Gen Intel Core processor with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Thunderbolt 3 (via USB-C).
Dell says that Concept UFO is something that is worthy of its Alienware brand.
The Concept Duet is as the name implies, a dual-screen device with two 13.4-inch display.
It’ll support pen and touch input and is very much along the lines of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold and Microsoft Surface Neo.
The second screen on the Concept Duet would help customers multitask more efficiently.
The Concept Ori is a foldable device with a 13-inch screen when unfolded. There’s said to be no seams and it’ll support multitasking, touch and pen input.
Dell’s CTO of Client Solutions, Glen Robson said in a blog post, “Each concept we are showcasing has been developed with spectacular user experiences as our primary focus. We’ll keep enhancing these experiences as the concepts advance. While some concepts may never be commercially available, we use the learnings and apply them to other products in the future.”
Dell says these are concept devices and they aren’t sharing availability or a roadmap for products that could use these designs.
