Just by looking at the specs, it's quite interesting.
Listing out some competitive points here:
A number of fellow community members here expresses that this is one of the best things to have on the Eve V (in the future).
U-series CPU; 31.5Whr or 42WHr battery ExpressCharge capable
A Kaby-lake U series CPU is awesome, probably does everything needed to be done (on a PC of this size).
The 620 doesn't seem to be much different from the Y-series's 615 (slightly higher base clock speed).
But I wonder how the battery and heat matters.
That's less than the V's 48WHr battery, but using a more powerful + power-hungry CPU.
That was a major reason to why the V went with Y-series ULV CPUs after all.
Worth noting that it's using a relatively low resolution of 1920x1280 (Full HD).
This probably saves some battery.
1920x1280 is not an unacceptable resolution for a 12-inch device anyway.
I personally can live with any resolution above 1920x1080 for a tablet and be as happy.
But if people work with high resolution photos all the time, I guess 1920x1280 is a bit low for that purpose.
Multimedia (Points worth mentioning)
* 5MP Integrated Camera (User-Facing)
* 8MP Integrated Camera (World-Facing)
* Face IR camera to support Windows Hello (Optional)
* Stereo Speaker with MaxxAudio Pro (2)
* Integrated Array Microphone (4)
The user-facing camera is as high resolution as V's world facing camera...
And V's user-facing camera is a little bit low-resolution so there's not much to say here.
The V doesn't have a Face IR camera, and no face recognition support...
(But Window Hello is still supported via fingerprint)
I'm guessing V's quad speaker is better than the stereo speakers here.
Integrated Array Microphone this is a surprise,
and I'm not sure if its going to be better than the V's "Dual Noise Cancelling Microphones"
Tablet – 292mm * 208.8mm * 9.76mm
About the same size of the Eve V, but thicker (the V is 295.9 x 205.3 x 8.9)
The V weighs less than 850g (i.e. < 1.87 lb), so both are lighter than 2 pounds (without the keyboard)
But no one knows how much its going to sell... (CNET says it starts from $899, other says its TBD)
Then pen is sold separately (the V's pen is said to be sold separately too, even though hyper early birds are getting it for free),
the keyboard is also sold separately (let's see if they'll rip people off like those surface pro keyboards)
I originally intended to list out some competitive points of this Latitude machine, but ended up somewhat comparing it with the V
