Samsung's new monitors will wirelessly charge your Qi-powered smartphone

Samsung has unveiled the new SE370 series of monitors, with two sizes to choose from: 23.6-inch and 27-inch, both of which can charge your smartphone wirelessly. Both monitors feature Qi charging pads built into their base, which is an excellent feature to see Samsung use.

The new SE370 monitors from Samsung have a native resolution of 1920x1080, use a PLS panel, have a response time of 4ms, DisplayPort and HDMI connectivity, and support for Windows 10. Samsung says that the new SE370 monitors "declutters work areas by doing away with unnecessary cables and ports needed to charge mobile devices".

You can place your Qi compatible smartphone onto the charging area, with it glowing green with its LED, to show you that your smartphone is being charged. Senior Vice President of Samsung's Visual Display Business, Seok-gi Kim explains: "Technology should support, not interfere with, active lifestyles. 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".

Samsung hasn't re vealed any pricing or ETA on the new SE370 displays, but we should hopefully see them surface before the end of the year.
