The new Dell 7400

With all of the innovations we are seeing in CES 2019, Dell’s Latitude 7400 may be one of the best as the technology company claimed it equipped the product with a new proximity sensor to improve security and have it last for a whole day. 

Dell is not done yet. Its Client Product Group president Jay Parker said this was only the beginning as the firm is set to offer more Latitudes this year. 

He said the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 "represents the convergence of speed, security, mobility, versatility, and productivity."

Dell Mechanical System architect Allen McKittick, meanwhile, said the laptop is introducing the "ExpressSign-in", which can detect motion from up to three feet or 1 meter away.

This is a spectrum that's invisible to the human eye, so it's very low powered. It emits the IR, detects the user, and then it wakes the system. At that point, once that system is woken, it invokes the IR camera, the IR camera is then going to use two separate IRs that will use facial recognition through Microsoft's Hello identification, and at that point you're automatically logged into the system without having to touch the keyboard or lift a finger, McKittick explained. 

Since the screen remains the major factor draining the battery, Dell said with the proximity sensor and ExpressSign-in in place, the laptop can shut down the display once the user leaves the room. 

Just how cool is that?

Once you walk away from the system, the proximity sensor recognises that the user is no longer in front of the system, it times out the display and locks the system, so at that point you save on battery life and you have that added layer of security where you don't have to worry about your system being open and unlocked, McKittick said. 

Inside the Latitude is a a quad-core 8th gen WHL-U Intel processor, has up to 16GB of on-board LPDDR3 2133MHz memory, integrated Intel 620 graphics 620, and runs Windows 10.

It also comes with 2x USB 3.1 gen 1 ports with PowerShare; 2x Thunderbolt 3 with power and DisplayPor; and a uSIM card slot. It has a gyroscope, eCompass/magnetometer, accelerometer, GPS, Ambient Light Sensor, and Adaptive Thermal Performance (via gyroscope/accelerometer).

Storage options include M.2 PCIe/NVMe SSD up to 1TB SSD, and Opal 2.0 SED up to 512G. Dell will make a 2TB option available by summer of this year.

The Latitude measures 320 x 200 x 15 mm and has a starting weight of 3 pounds.

Price and availability

This laptop will be available in the market in March with a price tag of USD 1,600.

Sadly, the Latitude line of Dell is rare in the Philippines. But hopefully, it will be available here as well.

What do you think of this news, guys?
