The 15-inch Latitude 9510 sports a Qualcomm X55 modem with sub-6Ghz 5G connectivity only, which means you’re missing out on mmWave 5G if you get this device. We’ve asked about the possibility of a mmWave variant in the future and will update the article when we get a response. But we’re guessing that sub-6Ghz makes for a more resilient form of mobile connectivity than mmWave.
Otherwise, the Latitude 9510 sports a tenth-generation Intel Core series processor (up to i7 vPro), up to 16GB of RAM, and Intel’s UHD integrated graphics solution. In other words, it’s no gaming powerhouse but it should be capable of less demanding games without issue.
Dell is positioning the 5G-equipped device as an enterprise choice, offering up to 30 hours of juice. The company has also added machine learning, thanks to the Dell Optimizer suite of tools. These tools include ExpressResponse to launch favorite apps faster, and ExpressCharge which senses your charging habits and acts accordingly (e.g. enabling fast charging to 35% when on the go).
The Dell Latitude 9510 will be available in two-in-one or traditional laptop form factors by March 26, starting at $1,799. Either way, you’re getting a 15-inch FHD screen (16:9), although the two-in-one has a touch-enabled display. Other notable specs include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, eSIM support, two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports, one USB 3.1 port, four microphones, and up to 1TB SSD storage.
This wasn’t the only laptop-related announcement, as Dell also revealed a refreshed XPS 13 laptop. This time, you’re getting tenth generation Intel Core series processors, a 16:10 “InfinityEdge” display that’s apparently 6.8% larger than the previous edition (available in FHD+ and 4K options), and up to 19 hours of “targeted” battery life.
Other Dell XPS 13 features include between 4GB and 32GB of RAM, 256GB to 2TB SSD, two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C ports (no full-sized USB port here), a fingerprint scanner in the power button, Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5. The XPS13 will be available in Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, the U.K., and the U.S. The device will then be available globally from February 2020.
