Can the Dell G7 15 7855 charge through Thunderbolt 3?

I've been looking at this laptop for a while, and I think I'm going to get it. I'm just wondering if I could charge the laptop with the thunderbolt 3 port to have a one cable docking experience. 

 

Also, does anyone know of any Thunderbolt 3 hub/dock that has 10 USB ports, Ethernet, 2 display outputs, and to be able to charge?

I dont believe so. I have the G5, and since it has separate power delivery I would argue not.

 

Someone had the same question about the inspirion line and the answer seems to be no if you have an external power brick.

Nope, the mobo doesn't include the feature. Moreover USB C charger cannot provide >100W

BTW, the correct model is 7588, not 7855
