Samsung debuts world’s first wireless charging monitor
Samsung has surprised the world once again with a new and innovative device that, this time, is not a smartphone. In fact the US branch of the Korean company has announced the new SE370 monitor, which has become the world’s first monitor that comes with wireless charging.
“As a leader in both mobile devices and display technology, Samsung has combined our knowledge of consumer behavior and needs in these areas to create the SE370 wireless charging monitor,” said Dave Das, Senior Vice President at Samsung Electronics America, Inc. “With consumers increasingly relying on mobile devices, we are proud to offer them the ability to declutter their workspace and use mobile devices simultaneously. As an industry-first, this monitor transforms the way users see and utilize their workspace, enabling them to work in a smarter and more efficient manner.”
The new Samsung SE370 offers a 23.6-inch display and, as you can see, allows users to recharge compatible mobile devices while at the same time reducing cable clutter. The wireless charging hub is located in the monitor stand and is compatible with various mobile devices. All you have to do is place the device in the circular wireless charging area, which is then confirmed by an LED light.
The new SE370 does not limit itself with this function, though – the display also has a Plane-to-Line-Switching (PLS) panel that allows for 178-degree viewing angles and offers a brightness level of 250 cd/m2. In addition the Eye Saver Mode sets the optimum picture quality suitable for eye relaxation based on the content being viewed. There’s also a function called Eco Saving Plus, which reduces screen brightness for increased energy efficiency. In addition to two standard manual settings, an auto-setting reduces energy consumption by approximately 10 percent, which in turn lowers users’ electric bills. This function is based on the luminescence of the screen’s black sections in auto on-screen display (OSD) mode. To further minimize environmental impact, the monitor’s front cover, stand and circuits are also constructed without PVC.
The Samsung SE370 offers 4 ms of response time and works at Full HD resolution. In addition to this the device is certified for Windows 10 and offers one HDMI 1.4 port, one DisplayPort connector and one D-Sub connector. Finally there’s one feature that will intrigue gamers – the display supports AMD’s FreeSync technology so there will be no tearing while gaming.
The new Samsung SE370 monitor is available now online where it sells for USD 249.99.
