The infamous nosecam of Dell XPS 13 is now gone.

Perfectionist's rejoice. Dell has finally perfected the XPS 13. The infamous nosecam is gone.

Dell is the king of ultrabooks and the XPS line is their flagship product lineup. These products are known for their aesthetically pleasing InfinityEdge displays which is way ahead of the competition. but there was always a catch. The Nosecam.

In the pursuit of thinner bezels, Dell has traditionally pushed it’s webcams to the bottom. With XPS, when you Skype with someone the camera will look up to your nose. So the name “Nosecam”

But in CES 2019 Dell corrected itself and perfected the XPS by putting the webcam at its rightful place. That doesn’t mean the bezel is now thicker. No Sir. It is of the same size as before.

To achieve this impossible, Dell has to invent the smallest HD webcam ever. The size of the unit is just 2.25mm, which allowed Dell to put the webcam where it belongs and while keeping its signature InfinityEdge display. but alas, due to miniaturization the camera we lose windows hello. but it has a fingerprint sensor though. You win some and you lose some I guess.
