Dell Latitude 9000 Features Automatic Webcam Shutter

Now that’s pretty handy, especially when most of us are working from home these days. You don’t want your privacy invaded do you 😛

Taken from Engadget … Dell has revealed the latest additions to its laptop and PC lines ahead of CES 2021, and one of the new features for the Latitude 9000 series computers could help make you feel more secure if you’re working or studying from home. The Latitude 9420 and 9520 laptops come with a feature called SafeShutter. Dell says it’s the industry’s first automatic webcam shutter, which can open or close on its own by syncing with video conferencing applications. No need to put a tape over your laptop camera anymore, so long as you don’t forget when you’re on a video call. In addition, the new 9000 series laptops have secure mic and mute keys.

… the new models will also feature a processor upgrade and be powered by 11th Gen Intel Core vPro processors. Details for the 9520 are scarce at this point, but Dell has revealed that the 9420 comes with more enhancements for the work-from-home era. It has better built-in speakers than its predecessors’ and camera enhancements that enable automatic light correction and background blur. You can get the new 9000 series laptops in either a clamshell or a 2-in-1 configuration, with the latter having 5G or 4G LTE and eSIM options. The Latitude 9420 will be available in the spring with prices starting at $1,949 — Dell will release the Latitude 9520’s availability and pricing in the spring, as well.
