AOC P2779VC 27-inch 1080p display has integrated Qi wireless charging
1080p monitors are a dime a dozen nowadays -- the market is saturated with them. Heck, many people are opting for displays with much better resolution too. In other words, it is virtually impossible to have a 1080p monitor stand out from the crowd.
And yet, AOC has managed to do so. How? The company has integrated a Qi charger into the base of its newest 27-inch monitor -- the P2779VC. If you own a compatible smartphone, you can charge it wirelessly by placing it on the monitor. That unique feature aside, this PLS display has other cool aspects too, such as 8-bit color depth and 178-degree viewing angles.
"The P2779VC features Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution that allows for high-definition image quality in terms of clarity and vivid colors. When you have Full HD resolution with dynamic contrast ratio, the result is crisp detailed images with incredible contrast, giving you bright vivid colors that comes to life every time. The impressive 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio reveals darker image areas in greater depth and detail. The P2779VC also boasts a 5ms response time to eliminate drag. Finally, the P2779VC comes with a plethora of connectivity features including VGA and two HDMI, which gives you high-definition video and audio, perfect for watching those videos or highly-detailed images at home", says AOC.
The value-focused company further says, "Qi Wireless Charging technology comes from the Chinese meaning “natural energy”. The technology is an interface standard developed by the Wireless Power Consortium for inductive electrical power transfer that wirelessly charges a compatible device’s battery using induction transfer. The monitor’s Qi Wireless Charging Base removes the hassle of cables and allows you to keep your device in view while charging and using the display, without having to worry about finding an outlet nearby. Compatible devices include Samsung Galaxy S5-6/Edge, Google Nexus 4-7, Motorola Droid Maxx, and Nokia Lumia 920-1520, among others"
