Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 Launched in India as an XPS Equivalent for Enterprise Users

After announcing its new premium commercial notebook at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2019, Dell has brought the Latitude 7400 2-in-1 to India. The company claims it is the world’s smallest commercial 14-inch 2-in-1 laptop and has been recognised as an innovation award honoree for offering the ‘perfect convergence of speed, security, mobility, versatility and productivity.’

The new notebook takes design inspiration from the premium XPS range and includes a CNC machined aluminum chassis with a magnesium alloy finish at the bottom for better heat dissipation. It also has slim bezels, enabling the company to offer a 14-inch display in a 13-inch form factor. The new notebook also is the first ever to use a proximity sensor enabled by Intel Context Sensing Technology. This allows the notebook to detect user presence, wake the system up, and immediately scan for facial recognition to log in with Windows Hello.

The company has also focused on designing the device antenna in such a way that the metal chassis doesn’t hamper the wireless performance. WIth ExpressCharge, the battery can be charged to up 80 percent in one hour.
