Depending on your tastes, wires can have some kind of aesthetic appeal to them when managed properly, but most people find them to be an ugly nuisance. Nowhere is this more apparent than at a desk or work space where your computer(s) and all of your peripherals tend to come together in a mess of tangled wires. This is where Samsung’s new wireless charging compatible monitors can be of some use.
Samsung has introduced the SE370, a full-HD monitor that can wirelessly charge gadgets compatible with the Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi standard. The monitor comes with a wireless charging area integrated into the stand, allowing you to top up your devices with ease. An LED light notifies you once charging commences. The SE370 is offered in 23.6-inch (S24E370DL) and 27-inch (S27E370DS) variants, and will be available sometime by the end of the year. On offer with the PLS panel is AMD’s FreeSync technology, which reduces screen latency by pushing frames as soon as they’re rendered by the GPU, 4ms response time, maximum brightness of up to 300 nits and a 178-degree viewing angle. The SE370 is compatible with Windows 10 and Mac, and comes with one HDMI 1.4, one DisplayPort and one D-Sub ports. The introduction of the SE370 signifies Samsung’s growing interest in the Qi standard. The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge were the first phones from the South Korean manufacturer to support wireless charging, and it looks like that trend will continue later into the year.
