Dell reveals the first wireless charging 2-in-1 laptop at Consumer Electronic Show 2017

Dell has unveiled world's first wireless charging 2-in-1 laptop, the Latitude 7285, at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES. If you like the wireless charging feature in certain Android phones, this may be the laptop which you are looking for.

Wireless charging is slowly gaining ground as a must-have feature, yet its presence in devices is periodic at best. Some high-end smartphones offer this feature, while others can support it via special cases that are often clunky. However the other devices such as laptops have yet to join the wireless charging trend - except for the Dell's latest 2-in-1.

Dell reveals its new Latitude 7285 as the world's first 2-in-1 to support wireless charging for more portability than ever.

"Dell will deliver a true wireless experience by incorporating WiTricity magnetic resonance wireless charging technology in the 12-inch Latitude 7285 2-in-1, which will be available from later this year," stated the company, "When combined with a charging mat and WiGig wireless dock, users can take the Latitude 2-in-1 with them without disengaging any wires or a physical dock."

WiTricity presented the demo of its wireless charging technology at CES 2016. While the company didn't reveal which manufacturers were adopting the tech at the time, Dell's corporate logo was featured on the prototype charging pad, prediction this year's announcement. The Dell wireless charging laptops made an appearance at WiTricity's show suite at Computex 2016 in June, according to CNET, though the particular model was not yet announced.

How it Works? - Upon returning home and setting the Dell Latitude 7285 on the charging mat, the laptop will start charging at once and then it will automatically reconnect to the WiGig dock, showing content on the external display, reports TechTimes.

When placing the Latitude 7285 on the wireless charging pad with the keyboard attached, the power goes directly to the machine, bypassing the keyboard. As a result, it's pretty much wireless charging with a trick, but it's still wireless charging and that's a first for a 2-in-1 business laptop hybrid.

The 2-in-1 is a hybrid device with all of its necessary components given within the tablet display. To turn into a business-suitable clamshell laptop, the tablet can be attached to one of the three available keyboards, out of which one plays nice with Dell's new wireless charging mat.

The advanced Latitude 7285 is expected to be more expensive than the 5285 model, which was sold for $899.
