Ahead of the forthcoming Consumer Electronics Show 2019, Dell is today unveiling a new convertible under its Latitude series. The Latitude 7400 two-in-one mostly is your standard Windows PC with the latest Intel chipsets, ample amounts of memory, narrow screen bezels, and more. But there’s one feature which the PC maker hopes will help the Latitude 7400 stand out — Express Sign-In.
The Dell Latitude 7400 comes with a one-of-a-kind ambient authentication system which allows the computer to lock or unlock itself based on your presence. Coupled with a bunch of proximity sensors (enabled by Intel Context Sensing Technology) and Windows Hello, the Latitude 7400 is capable of unlocking itself when you sit at your desk and go to sleep when you walk away. In addition to offering a more convenient login method, Dell says Express Sign-In also preserves battery life and power since you won’t ever leave it idle.
As for the rest of the hardware, the Dell Latitude 7400 has a 14-inch 1080p screen with minimal bezels around the four borders. It’s powered by Intel’s latest quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core WHL-U processor and up to 16GB LPDDR3 SDRAM. There’s also an LTE option and Dell claims a battery life of about twenty-four hours which is rather commendable. On top of that, the display is a Super Low Power Panel which consumes relatively less power and you can get 80 percent of the battery by charging it just for an hour.
Being primarily targeted at business customers, the Dell Latitude 7400 has a fingerprint reader too and a contactless smart card reader. It also features all the ports you’ll need including a standard USB, HDMI, and more. There are multiple storage options including one that comes with a 2 terabytes SSD. The Dell Latitude 7400 will be available sometime in March for a starting price of $1600.
