Dell has unveiled new updates on the horizon for its Dell Mobile Connect smartphone companion, and the Dell Cinema entertainment suite. Unveiled at CES 2019, the firm is set to refresh the duo with an expanded feature set.
Dell Mobile Connect has reportedly facilitated over "30 million phone calls and text messages" since launch, offering a bridge between PCs and select devices. The app is now set to expand these offerings, with full-fledged drag-and-drop functionality for fast photo and document transfer.
This pairs with an all-new VR experience, where users can receive phone notifications inside the headset from iOS and Android devices. Android users can even interact with their mobile over desktop VR, via a touch-enabled 3D model.
Dell Cinema also receives love with a forthcoming update, expanding all aspects of its video, audio, and streaming enhancement suite. CinemaColor 2.0 makes its debut with improved colors backed by Dolby Vision, while CinemaStream 2.0 now promises "10x less buffering and up to 6x improvement in video quality." Finally, with CinemaSound 2.0, Dell plans various audio enhancements including sound oriented by Waves MaxxAudio NX head-tracking and further optimization across Dell's 2-in-1 lineup.
