Removing all cables

Samsung has announced what it claims is the world's first monitor with an integrated wireless charging function for compatible mobile devices.

Dubbed the SE370, the 23.6-inch monitor claims to declutter work areas by eliminating unnecessary cables for charging mobile devices.


Dave Das, Senior Vice President at Samsung Electronics America said consumers were relying on mobile devices and this gave 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," he said.


The Samsung SE370 provides users with optimized convenience and multitasking capabilities by consolidating multiple charging ports found in other displays into a circular wireless charging area, integrated into the monitor's stand. Users simply place their mobile device on the stand's charging area for initiation, which is then confirmed by an LED light.

The monitor has a Plane-to-Line-Switching (PLS) panel which means users can have wide-viewing angles of 178 degrees. The brightness level, at 300 cd/m2, creates crystal clear and vibrant imagery across the wide screen.

The screen is designed for extended periods of screen use, and there is an Eye Saver Mode sets the optimum picture quality suitable for eye relaxation based on the content being viewed.
While we would have thought that  this is more likely to end up in an office, Samsung claims that the SE370 delivers smooth and immersive gaming coupled with embedded picture-enhancing functions.

"Supported by AMD FreeSync technology, the monitor synchronizes the screen refresh rate with the frame rate of a user's AMD graphics card to minimize input latency, as well as to reduce stutter and lag during gaming and video playback. The result is the most seamless gaming experience possible, allowing users to enjoy fast paced games without missing a beat," Samsung sang.

The SE370 monitor's 4ms response time enables clear and smooth tracking of even the fastest on-screen action without motion blur or ghosting, making it easier to hit crucial shots in FPS games or avoid obstacles in racing games.

The Samsung SE370 is available for pre-order on Newegg for $249.99.
