Samsung's new range of monitors feature Qi wireless chargingBy Tim Schiesser 8 comments
Samsung has announced a new pair of monitors today that both feature Qi wireless charging in their stands, allowing you to easily charge your Qi-compatible smartphone on your desk without the clutter of a separate charging plate.
The two displays Samsung has announced have pretty boring names: there's the 23.6-inch S24E370DL and the 27-inch S27E370DS, both of which feature 1920 x 1080 PLS panels. Samsung claims both have a response time of 4ms with 178-degree viewing angles and a typical contrast ratio of 1000:1. As for brightness, you'll get 250 and 300 cd/m2 from the 23.6- and 27-inch models respectively.
These two new monitors also support AMD's FreeSync technology, which allows the display's refresh rate to adapt to the render rate of your graphics card. This is especially useful while PC gaming, as you can experience smoother gameplay across a wider range of frame rates.
Samsung hasn't disclosed the refresh rate range of these new monitors, though it doesn't look like it'll be as wide as some gaming-specific monitors. However you will get a flicker free experience and an "ultra-narrow" bezel, plus three inputs: HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2, and D-Sub VGA.
There is no word on how much these monitors will cost, although judging by the specifications we should expect a relatively entry-level price point. Samsung says both displays will hit the market by the end of the year, with more information to come at IFA in September.
