Dell’s first 16-inch laptop – Inspiron 16 Plus is designed for content creators and features a stunning 3K 16:10 display, Tiger Lake-H i7 processors, RTX 3060 dGPU, up to 32GB DDR4-3200 RAM, up to 2TB of NVMe SSD storage, and a Thunderbolt 4 connector.
The new Dell Inspiron 16 Plus is aimed at content creators and offers powerful features including the new Intel Tiger Lake-H processor combined with Nvidia’s Ampere mobile processors, high-quality displays, and a rugged thermal system.
Content creators can now take advantage of the latest 16-inch 3K (3072 x 1920) displays in a 16:10 aspect ratio, which increases the active screen area by 11% while increasing the device size by only 5% compared to the previous generation of 15 inches. The high-quality panels offer 10-bit color depth, 1000: 1 contrast ratio, 100% sRGB color coverage, and 300 nit brightness.
Dell doesn’t specify the exact processor options, but we can safely assume that at least the Tiger Lake-H i7 will be included. Regarding the rugged cooling system and superior dGPU options, Dell mentions that configurations with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 have 3 fans and 5 heat pipes, while all other configurations use 2 fans and 3 heat pipes. All configurations have 4 vents.
RAM capacities are up to 32GB DDR4-3200 and can be easily upgraded with the dual-slot feature. There is only one M.2 PCIe NVMe slot that supports SSDs up to 2TB capacity. Port selection includes 1x Thunderbolt 4 and 2 USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 connectors, one output HDMI 2.0b video, SD card reader, and combo audio jack.
