Samsung's SE370 monitor offers wireless phone charging


Your monitor can be so much more than just a device for displaying your desktop -- it can also supply power to other things. Extra ports on the back of a screen are nothing new, so the idea of using a monitor to charge your phone might not seem groundbreaking; but the Samsung SE370 can do it wirelessly.

The monitor is available in 23.6 inch and 27 inch models and features an integrated Qi wireless charging plate so compatible handsets can be charged without the need to fiddle with USB cables. In addition to space and time-saving features, Samsung has taken care to ensure that wireless charging is not the only reason to buy the monitor.

There's an impressive viewing angle and support for AMD's FreeSync technology to improve the gaming experience. There's also a dedicated game mode that eliminates ghosting and blur, and the Eco Saving Plus feature helps to reduce power consumption. Annoyingly, Samsung is yet to share details about pricing and availability, but hopefully this information will be released soon.

Here are those all-important specs:
