Samsung unveils world's first monitor with wireless charging
One of the most common places to recharge a personal smartphone or tablet is right in front of the computer. Existing monitors already offer multiple USB ports that are certainly useful, but can quickly clutter the work space.
Samsung is hoping to make life just a tad bit easier with the SE370 monitor, which integrates a wireless charging pad right into stand. A dedicated LED light confirms a charging device of up to 4 cm away.
Outside of the built-in Qi station, the display supports AMD FreeSync and a fast response time of just 4 ms. The manufacturer is clearly marketing the notebook towards gamers as well. Its soft Blue and white bezel is easy on the eyes and is an uncommon color combination for monitors of this size.
A few drawbacks of the monitor are the lack of USB ports and its small charging station. Charging multiple devices simultaneously will likely be cumbersome. Meanwhile, the display cannot be rotated into portrait mode, which is unfortunate considering its high-quality PLS panel.
The SE370 will be available on November 13 for $249 USD.
