Reason: Needs a hardware table and an accessibility, firmware and function keys section (Discuss in Talk:Dell Latitude 7490)

The Latitude 7490 is virtually identical to the Dell Latitude 7480 with the exception of an upgrade to Kabylake-R processors (8th gen).

What works

  • Basic hardware (display, touchpad, trackpoint, keyboard, WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, audio, hibernation, etc.)
  • Keyboard backlight control
  • Screen backlight control
  • Fn/Hotkeys, including Fn-lock
  • Contact SmartCard reader
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon X7 LTE Modem
  • USB-C (connected to Android phone, was able to charge phone and read files)
  • USB-C power delivery
  • DisplayPort Alternate Mode for USB-C
  • USB-C Display port with D6000 docking station (triple screen with dual 4k works) + power delivery
  • Thunderbolt 3.0 (shows up in gnome-settings, works with Dell TB16 dock (Ethernet, DisplayPort @120hz, USB, power delivery, etc))

What does not work

What was not tested

  • Contactless SmartCard (probably works since it was detected by pcsc_scan
