New Samsung monitor eliminates charging cables
Samsung unveils world’s first wireless mobile charging monitor
Samsung Electronics has launched a monitor with an integrated wireless charging function for mobile devices.
The SE370 monitor seeks to declutters work areas by doing away with unnecessary cables and ports needed to charge mobile devices. It does so through a wireless charging area integrated in the monitor’s stand. Users simply need to place their device on the stand’s charging area to initiate automatic charging, which is confirmed by an LED light.
The monitor works with all mobile devices that use Qi wireless charging standard, which was developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). Apart from Samsung phones, Nokia, Motorola, LG, and HTC use the technology as well.
The SE370 eliminates the hassle of having to purchase and keep separate charging kits and users can continue working while their mobile devices charge.
The monitor itself is a Plane-to-Line-Switching (PLS) HD affair offered in two sizes of 23.6” or 27”, featuring an ultra-narrow bezel and semi-transparent blue finish frame with Samsung’s Touch of Colour accents. The PLS ensures wide viewing angles 178 degrees for the SE370. It is also Windows and Mac compatible.
No word yet on when the SE370 is going to be available in the region.
