Samsung creates world’s first monitor with inbuilt wireless charging

A Monitor With Built-In Wireless Charging Actually Makes A Lot of Sense.

Consumer electronics makers have tried for years to make computer monitors more attractive by adding in things which few folks cared about, such as speakers.

The full-HD monitors are available in 24-inch (S24E370DL) and 27-inch (S27E370DS) displays and feature AMD’s anti-flicker gaming tech and 178-degree viewing angles. But a new monitor from Samsung has an added feature which we wouldn’t mind seeing in more monitors from now on — integrated wireless charging for mobile devices.

The monitors consolidate the multiple charging ports found in other displays with a circular wireless charging area integrated in the monitor’s stand. If your mobile device supports Qi wireless charging — as Samsung’s Galaxy S6, Google’s Nexus 6 or LG’s G3 do — you can simply place it on the monitor’s stand, and it will be automatically charged.

The promise of wireless charging has always been an exciting one, but a standalone charging pad, connected to a power source via a wire, still has one wire too many. Samsung’s latest monitor, the catchily-named SE370, is a pretty run-of-the-mill desktop monitor: 24” or 27”, and 1080p PLS panel are not exciting specs. Besides wireless charging, the Samsung SE370 brings a 1,920×1,080 pixel resolution, a response time of 4ms, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio and a horizontal and vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees. However, a report on Engadget notes that the innovative displays are expected to be launched at Europe’s biggest electronics show, IFA, scheduled in September.

Rather than needing a separate wireless charging dock with its own special cable, it’s integrated into something that’s already taking up desk space. The monitor will come in two sizes: 23.6 and 27 inches — the specifications are the same save for one detail; the 27-inch model is a little brighter at 300 cd/m2. Those basic screen specs give me hope that the price will be reasonable — otherwise, you’re probably still better off getting that Ikea wirelessly charging lamp.

It does this by “monitoring and optimizing picture quality to match specific environmental settings.” “Technology should support, not interfere with, active lifestyles,” Seok-gi Kim, senior vice president of Samsung’s visual display business, said in a statement. “Our customers increasingly rely on mobile devices to obtain information and interact with others; so by doing away with the clutter on their desks, we are helping them to use their mobile devices in a smarter way.” Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t provide timing or pricing for the SE370.
