Sometimes leaks give the impression of having come through shady processes and under-the-counter deals, eventually seeing the light of day in the form of sketchy screenshots and blurry prototype images. Sometimes, though, someone uploads the wrong image to a website and everything8217;s rumbled rather innocently.

An eagle-eyed Reddit user, WesolyKubeczek, posted to question whether the image, attached to a page showing off Dell8217;s existing Precision laptops, indicated that changes were in store for the 15 and 17-inch versions of the XPS line. After all, the XPS 13 has been getting far more regular updates, so you8217;d expect the larger sizes to be updated periodically.
All four laptops pictured appear to be new, although the two on the left look like they8217;re new Precision models, based on their chunkier designs and more all-encompassing features, including a number pad and more ports.
The two right-hand laptops, meanwhile, have the familiar stylings of XPS machines, with ultra-thin builds and minute bezels around their screens, something at which Dell8217;s line has excelled.
One change from previous XPS 15 and 17 models is that Dell looks like it8217;s embracing USB-C fully 8211; we can see two USB-C ports and a memory card slot on the right hand side of one of the models, as well as a headphone jack. The bigger size of the laptops also sees at least one of them gaining stereo speakers to either side of the keyboard, which are always welcome for media viewing.
It looks like the bigger sizes will also benefit from bigger trackpads, too. Of course, the image has been taken down pretty swiftly, and Dell hasn8217;t made any comment. Still, it8217;s a pretty safe bet that we8217;ll officially hear a bit more about the laptops and their specs in the near future, if this is anything to go on.
