CES 2017 | Dell introduces Latitude 7285 detachable with wireless charging
Dell may have one of the most expansive notebook lineups for this coming year with the new Inspiron 15 gaming machine, Alienware Kaby Lake refresh, XPS 2-in-1, Precision 7720 Pascal Quadro, and Latitude 5285 convertible. Now, we can add one more to the list with the upcoming Latitude 7285 business detachable.
Unlike the 12.3-inch Latitude 5285, the 12.3-inch Latitude 7285 is essentially a tablet with a keyboard dock capable of wireless charging. Its screen will be a unique 3:2 aspect ratio that is uncommon on many consumer notebooks and will carry a native resolution of 2880 x 1920 pixels. Other core features include an infrared camera for Windows Hello, Kaby Lake CPU options, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD, and a MicroSD expansion slot.
The special wireless charging capabilities will be based on technology from WiTricity that will require the notebook to be placed onto a proprietary mat. Thus, the Qi chargers that many smartphone users have grown accustomed to will not be compatible with the new Dell.
Expect the Latitude 7285 to launch by the end of May. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not announced any prices for its latest business detachable.
