Dell has unveiled a host of new and improved products and software experiences across its Latitude, XPS and Inspiron portfolios.
Latitude 7400 2-in-1
People demand more from today’s technology wanting portability and connectivity without sacrificing performance, plus a machine that’s beautiful and responsive. The new Latitude 7400 2-in-1 delivers all of this, with what appears as a sixth sense – an ability to be ready to go before users even touch it.
The world’s first PC to use a proximity sensor enabled by Intel(r) Context Sensing Technology1, this 2-in-1 features ExpressSign-in which detects user presence, wakes the system, and immediately scans for facial recognition to log in with Windows Hello. Even when a user steps away for a break, it will recognise that they have left and will lock itself to preserve battery life and maintain security.
XPS 13 with top-mounted webcam
Dell’s 13-inch thin and light XPS 13 with a new top-mounted innovative webcam for a better video experience is another CES 2019 Innovation Honouree and Dell’s most award-winning product ever.
At just 2.25-mm, Dell’s smallest HD webcam ever enables the XPS to maintain its trend-defining InfinityEdge display while moving the camera to the top of the display for a better video experience. The XPS 13 also is the first notebook in Dell’s portfolio to support Dolby Vision.
Dolby Vision transforms the entertainment experience with ultra-vivid picture quality — incredible brightness, contrast, and colour that bring entertainment to life. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver colours never before seen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen.
Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 with full-size pen garage in the hinge
The new 13-inch and 15-inch Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 devices feature the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors, upscale design with an aluminium body, narrow borders and a diamond-cut finish on the click pad edge.
A first-of-a-kind garage in the hinge6 provides storage for the included full-size Active Pen that is accessible no matter how it is used. Designed with form and functionality in mind, the new keyboard integrates the power button and fingerprint reader into a new power key as part of the keyboard itself. This allows for the addition of a number pad into a narrow-border 15-inch 2-in-1 for the first time for Dell.
The new Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 devices also features Adaptive Thermal technology enabling the system to adjust its performance profile based on how a customer is holding it. The device changes power profiles to generate less heat when watching movies on a lap and ramps up to full power for productivity on a desk.
Dell Cinema updates CinemaColor, CinemaSound and CinemaStream
On-the-go productivity is not all these new PCs offer. Vibrant colour, sound clarity and prioritised content streaming come standard on the new XPS and select Inspiron devices. Dell Cinema, offering an immersive cinematic experience on a PC, continues to advance with new features and updates.
Additionally, CinemaStream 2.0 enhances the video streaming experience with up to 10x less buffering and up to 6x improvement in video quality8. It automatically detects and prioritises the most critical network traffic to channel maximise bandwidth for live-streaming and video chats for a seamless, stutter-free experience.
PC and smartphone integration with Dell Mobile Connect
Dell has strengthened its Dell Mobile Connect offering with additional functionality of wireless file transfer capability allowing Android users to drag and drop photos and other files from their phone to their PC and vice versa, even without internet connection.
In addition, Dell is revealing a cutting-edge future capability of integrating the smartphone into the VR experience, allowing VR gamers to receive notifications, conduct phone calls and reply to text messages. Android users can even access all their mobile applications by pulling a virtual 3D model of their phone and operating it with touch inside the VR experience.
OLED and 240Hz displays for 15-inch notebooks
Dell is committed to OLED and has helped lead a market shift in OLED panels for laptops. Dell was among the first to offer OLED on a 13-inch gaming notebook and used that success to drive 15-inch panels into our premium notebooks giving customers better contrast ratio, colour and faster response times for gaming.
The Dell XPS 15, Alienware m15 and Dell G7 15 will offer OLED with HDR, 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut and 100,000:1 Contrast Ratio, starting March 2019. Dell also will offer 240Hz panels on the Alienware m15 notebooks in March.
2019 brings more awards.
