World’s first wirelessly charging laptop from Dell

The American OEM Dell Inc. that produces industry-leading machines has fabricated a laptop that charges wirelessly. Yes, that’s correct, the attribute that was largely associated with smaller devices such as smartphones and smartwatches has now diversified into laptops as well. Introducing the Dell Latitude 7285 powered by cutting edge wireless charging technology.

The emergence of the powerful smartphones have overshadowed both the tablet and PC category. As smartphones became more powerful and portable, the need for PCs and laptops declined over time. However, the need for personal computers cannot be completely ignored. Personal computing devices such as laptops and desktops still hold an important spot in workplaces and homes. The latest offering from Dell looks to combine the power of a laptop with features from a smartphone.

The latest attempt from Dell is commendable, the Latitude 7285 is the world’s first laptop to support wireless charging. This feature reduces the hassle of keeping the laptop plugged in during heavy use or when the battery indicator turns red after usage on the go.

The laptop can be kept on the charging pad and save the hassle of connecting the device to a charging port. The Latitude 7285 deploys WiTricity’s magnetic resonance technology to wirelessly charge the laptop, and it also supports charging from a distance.

Dell Latitude 7295 is a 2-in-1 laptop that can have its screen detached to be used as a tablet. The display unit, however, doesn’t support wireless charging and must be connected to the keyboard that has a wireless charging receptor built in. A separate charging pad must also be purchased in addition to the laptop. This makes the laptop a very expensive product to purchase at the moment. In terms of specifications, the laptop is powered by a seventh generation Intel i5 processor. It also comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB SSD storage.

This is a step in the right direction towards development in wireless tech. it would be exciting to see how far this technology progresses and the applications we would get to see from it. Do let us know in the comments section about your views and opinions.
