via Bios built-in tools and usb flash (F12 via boot process) and updated
kenel up to 4.4.9 http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-

#~/Downloads/4.4.9$ ls
linux-firmware_1.158_all.deb  linux-headers-4.4.9-040409_4.4.9-040409.201605041832_all.deb  linux-headers-4.4.9-040409-generic_4.4.9-040409.201605041832_amd64.deb  linux-image-4.4.9-040409-generic_4.4.9-040409.201605041832_amd64.deb

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am using the Dell XPS 13 9350 with Ubuntu 16.04, and I am
  experiencing random screen flickering where the screen will flicker to
  black for a split second. This happens repeatedly every few seconds
  for half a minute or so. Then the issue will disappear for a few
