Right before CES 2020 in Las Vegas, Dell has introduced two major upgrades to its laptop line to improve mobile workability for users: the laptop is integrated with 5G network technology and application expansion. The Mobile Connect app allows you to mirror iPhone apps to the screen as well as transfer files wirelessly. Both upgrades will be for the new Dell Latitude 9510 laptop.
Made from an aluminum frame, the Dell Latitude 9510 has a 15.6-inch 1080p screen, Intel UHD VGA and supports Wifi 6 (802.11ax), an integrated fingerprint scanner. Besides, the new laptop line is also equipped with “integrated AI” to manage battery life and improve application startup performance by machine learning. The 9510 will come in two versions, one with a traditional folding design and the other with a hinge that allows it to be turned into a tablet with a pen support.
Some other upgrade options also include Intel Core i7 CPU 10 th generation, 1TB SSDs and Smart Card reader. If you don’t choose a card reader, you can upgrade your laptop battery to 87 Watt with 30 hours of battery life, and if you choose a card reader, the battery capacity drops to 52 Watt with 17 hours of battery life. .
The most interesting feature of the Latitude 9510 is 5G connectivity – especially when this laptop is still using Intel chips. Instead of using Intel modems, Dell opted for Qualcomm’s 5G Snapdragon X55 modem for its laptops, along with the optional Snapdragon X20 modem for 4G connectivity. Although Intel recently said it has cooperated with MediaTek to equip 5G modems for Core i-series chips on laptops, Intel said that the first 5G laptops will debut in early 2021.
However, the integrated antennas inside the Latitude 9510 only connect to 5G networks under 6GHz (sub-6GHz), not high-speed millimeters bands being deployed by leading carriers in the United States.
In addition to the above upgrades, the update to Dell’s Mobile Connect software has allowed some of their computers to mirror iOS device screens, including iPhones, as well as transfer files and photos wirelessly to Dell laptops. With Apple often restricting integration from third-party devices, this new capability will give Dell laptops a significant difference from other Windows laptops on the market.
