Expanding its Latitude series, Dell has launched the latest notebook Latitude 7400 which is again a 2-in-1 convertible. Besides all the regular features, what goes attracting with the device is its PC proximity sensor, ExpressSign-in, which wakes up the laptop's screen (when the lid is open) detecting your presence (in the vicinity of up to 5 feet) using Intel context sensing technology and instantly triggers Windows Hello and IR Camera sensor to sign you in. And when you walk away, the sensor automatically locks the system preserving battery charge and maintaining security. Interestingly, Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is the world's first PC to sport such proximity sensors.
Besides this, the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 features 14-inch full HD (1920 x 1080 resolution) display with anti-reflective, anti-smudge and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. With narrow bezels on four sides, thin body weighing 1.3kg, aluminium unibody chassis, hairline brushed design, a tactile hinge that allows four working modes, the convertible looks impressive and enough portable while on the go.
The device is powered by Quad-core Intel's 8th generation Whiskey Lake CPUs and Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU, and coupled with 16GB LPDDR3 RAM, up to a 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. 4-cell 52 WHr and 6-cell 78 WHr battery unit ensure longer working sessions and the complementing 'Super Low Power' technology optimizes your screen's performance saving power ultimately.
When it comes to the connectivity slots, the notebook has two USB Type-A 3.1 ports, two USB Type C Thunderbolt 3 ports, full-sized HDMI port, SIM card slot, microSD card reader, SmartCard reader, Noble Wedge Lock slot, etc. There is also a fingerprint sensor.
