Dell took to the annual pre-CES announcement event today, for the announcement of their first new tablet for 2021 and their most interesting Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet in a long time, with the new 13-inch Dell Latitude 7320.
It’s estimated by Dell to launch at the end of March, from $999 for the entry level version. Though I would expect some delays as with all tablet computers this year:
The top model will be an 11th gen. Intel Core i7 powered version with 16GB LPDDR4XSDRAM at 4266 MHz, and up to 1TB of SSD storage. The entry level model will start with 128GB storage though.
The design looks similar to that of the Surface Pro X at first, owing to the Active Pen holder in the keyboard, but apart from the option of 4G LTE, they are not that similar otherwise, and the back of the tablet is more reminiscent of a Surface Pro, since it has a built-in kickstand.
Dell Latitude 7320 has a 13-inch screen with a Full HD 1920 x 1280 resolution display at 500 nits, with Gorilla Glass DX and Active Pen support.
Other specs includes a 5MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera, optional IR camera, stereo speakers with MaxxAudio Pro, optional fingerprint reader, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, optional Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 modem, 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports, USB C, and DisplayPort, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a lock slot. A SmartCard Reader is also optional, which is rare for a tablet to feature these days.
The keyboard is a backlit and spill resistant keyboard known as the travel keyboard. The optional digitizer is new, and is called the Latitude 7320 Detachable Stylus Pen.
The tablet is 8.44mm thick and weighs 851 grams. The Keyboard is 5.1mm thick and weighs 351 grams.
As a Dell tablet PC, the Latitude 7320 is available with the long range of security suites and features that Dell typically makes available for their PC’s.
