The latest version of the XPS 13 finally introduces that fix.

Doing it required years of work and forced Dell to consider many solutions, including a smartphone-like notch.

He’s been the Product Manager for the XPS clamshells at Dell since before the InfinityEdge bezels were first introduced.

Obviously, thin bezels seemed like the smart thing to do.

Squeezing a camera back in the top bezel wasn’t a matter of rearranging parts.

That’s why shrinking the camera wasn’t the first option — and we should all be glad Dell didn’t choose of the alternatives that were considered.
