Upcoming Dell Latitude 9330 2-in-1 collaboration touchpad shows us what the future of Latitude laptops might look like
Dell's first 13.3-inch Latitude 9000 series laptop with 360-degree hinges is coming this June to appease C-suite business users looking for a flagship subnotebook akin to the HP EliteBook series or MSI Summit Flip series. Called the Latitude 9330, the model introduces a brand new chassis design alongside new hardware features and 12th gen Intel processors.
Perhaps the most notable feature of the Latitude 9330 2-in-1 will be its "collaboration touchpad" which can display certain icons for easier access to their respective applications. It's not anywhere near what Asus offers with its ZenPad secondary displays, but it's certainly a simpler and arguably more elegant way to make better use of the large clickpad surface. Dell will likely adopt this feature on more Latitude laptops of different sizes in the years to come.
Beyond the new touchpad features, the model will also come standard with a 500-nit 16:10 QHD+ touchscreen capable of full sRGB reproduction. There will be no other display options besides the one, but at least we're not stuck with a lower resolution 1200p panel. 4G and 5G connectivity are optional with up to 12th gen Intel Core i7 vPro CPUs.
Check out the specifications sheet below for the complete details. The manufacturer will announce starting prices for the Latitude 9330 2-in-1 as we move closer to launch.
