Dell Latitude 5330 revealed with 16:9 displays, soldered RAM and plenty of configuration options
Dell has announced the Latitude 5330, a 13.3-inch machine available as a laptop or a 2-in-1. Like the Latitude 5430 and Latitude 5530, the Latitude 5330 relies on 12th Gen Intel Core processors. According to Dell, it will offer the Latitude 5330 with 'up to 17 U15 vPro' parts, presumably the Core i7-1265U vPro. In comparison, Dell will sell the Latitude 5430 and Latitude 5530 with a range of processors options, including 11th Gen parts.
Additionally, the Latitude 5330 features up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and 2 TB of PCIe NVMe storage. Unfortunately, Dell has chosen to solder the Latitude 5330's RAM, unlike the Latitude 5430 and Latitude 5530. Moreover, the machine measures 305.7 x 207.5 x 16.92 mm, regardless of whether you choose the laptop or 2-in-1. However, the laptop variant starts at 1.2 kg, 120 g lighter than the 2-in-1.
Also, Dell will only sell the 2-in-1 model with one display option, a 1080p panel that peaks at 300 nits and supports the company's Active Pen. Apparently, this display option covers 72% of the NTSC colour space too and is protected by Gorilla Glass 6 DXC glass. By contrast, Dell provides three display options for the laptop variant, although all are 1080p panels.
Specifically, the entry-level panel is non-touch, has a 250 nit peak brightness and 45% NTSC colour space coverage. Furthermore, there is the equivalent 300-nit display without pen support and a 400-nit option that Dell markets as Super Low Power and offering 100% sRGB colour space coverage. Separately, the Latitude 5330 comes with a 41 Wh or 58 Wh battery, plus 60 W, 65 W or 95 W power adapters. All configurations will feature the same ports too:
- 2x Thunderbolt 4
- 2x USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A
- 1x HDMI 2.0
- 1x external uSIM card tray (optional) - eSIM capable
- 1x uSD 4.0 memory card reader
- 1x SmartCard reader (optional)
- 1x 3.5 mm jack
- 1x Wedge-shaped lock slot
