In an attempt to reduce the use of chorded chargers the Korean electronics giant, Samsung has come with a new PC monitor! It might sound strange, but yes it can unclutter your workspace from those innumerable charging wires. You might be wondering how, right?
The Samsung has equipped their new monitor SE370 with a Qi Wireless charging technology that will enable you to charge all your smart devices supporting the same charging technology.
You just need to put your smartphone at the base of the monitor, on the top of section demarcated as Wireless Charging. As of now the Samsung Galaxy S6 is the only device in Samsung's stable to support this charging technology - maybe the Note 5 would come with the same. Nevertheless this nifty feature would enable you to forget of the hassle of carrying your smartphone charger along.
The company claims that this is one of the first devices of this kind - that's true to be honest! Along with this new technology the monitor carries some decent spec under the hood. There will be two variants of this monitor-one with a 23.6-inch screen and other with a 27-inch. It would feature a Full HD (1920x1080) resolution with a contrast ratio of 1000:1. Both the variants would have a 4ms (milli second) response time. Brightness of the displays on the two variants are little different though. While the 23.6-inch variant has a brightness of 250 cd/sq metre, the 27-inch variant will come with 300 cd/sq metre. The company will also include a HDMI 1.4 port for connecting with other devices.
"Technology should support, not interfere with, active lifestyles," Seok-gi Kim, senior vice president of Samsung's visual display business, said in a statement. "Our customers increasingly rely on mobile devices to obtain information and interact with others; so by doing away with the clutter on their desks, we are helping them to use their mobile devices in a smarter way," he added.
The company hasn't announced any official launch date or a pricing for the devices though. We are expecting to see this device in the Samsung stand at IFA Berlin. Personally I don't think the company would launch these devices at the event scheduled on 13th of August.
