At CES 2019, Dell has announced a number of devices to enhance connectivity and mobility of working professionals and home users.
Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is claimed to be the world’s smallest commercial 14″ 2-in-1 targeting up to 24 hours of battery life.
The device is the first to feature a PC proximity sensor enabled by Intel Context Sensing Technology. The ExpressSign-in feature 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 recognize that they have left and will lock itself to preserve battery life and maintain security.
In another major enhancement, Dell has perfected the 13″ thin and light XPS 13 with a new top-mounted innovative webcam for a better video experience and a new frost color option.
At just 2.25-mm, Dell’s smallest HD webcam ever enables the XPS to maintain its 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.
Dell has also improved the functional design of Inspiron 7000 2-in-1, with first full-size pen garage in the hinge. The device features the latest 8th Gen Intel Core processors and comes with an aluminum body, narrow borders and a diamond-cut finish on the click pad edge.
The new Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 devices also feature 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.
In addition, Dell has announced updates to CinemaColor, CinemaSound and CinemaStream. CinemaColor 2.0, which is enhanced by Dolby Vision, now offers richer, deeper colours. Volume, bass and dialogue also are enhanced with CinemaSound 2.0.
Dell has also announced a 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.
To enhance visual impact on devices, Dell has enhanced Dell XPS 15, Alienware m15 and Dell G7 15 with features like OLED with HDR, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and 100,000:1 Contrast Ratio, starting March 2019.
