Samsung Electronics introduces the SE370, the industry’s first monitor with an integrated wireless charging function for mobile devices.
Samsung’s SE370 monitor works with all mobile devices that use the leading Qi wireless charging standard, which was developed by the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). Qi is one of the most readily-available global interface standards.
Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, Seok-gi Kim, said, “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. Through the integration of wireless mobile charging technology, our innovative SE370 monitor dramatically improves efficiency, convenience and connectivity at home and at work – representing another significant milestone in our long history of industry-firsts.”
The SE370 was built for optimized convenience and productive multitasking, which consolidates the multiple charging ports found in other displays with a circular wireless charging area integrated in the monitor’s stand. Users simply need to place their device on the stand’s charging area to initiate automatic charging, which is confirmed by an LED light.
Available in 23.6 inches and 27 inches, the SE370 monitor declutters work areas by doing away with unnecessary cables and ports needed to charge mobile devices. Along with superior picture quality, enhanced visual performance and thoughtful design, the monitor seamlessly integrates advanced technologies that offer both professionals and consumers an optimal viewing and usability experience.
As a complete solution, the SE370 eliminates the hassle of having to purchase and keep separate charging kits, saving cost and improving workspace utilization. Users also can continue working while their mobile devices charge, helping them to enhance productivity and work task efficiency.
Designed for extended periods of screen use, Samsung’s SE370 makes the viewing experience less strenuous. The monitor’s eye-saver mode reduces the harmful effects of blue light on viewers’ eyes and associated eye strain by monitoring and optimizing picture quality to match specific environmental settings. Similarly, the monitor’s flicker-free function protects viewers’ eyes from the constant strain of flickering screens that can occur with standard monitors.
The SE370 further ensures comfortable viewing through a high-performance Plane-to-Line-Switching (PLS) panel. The PLS panel allows users to experience universally-optimized viewing with a 178 degree wide-viewing angle, as well as excellent picture quality with vivid and clear imagery delivered through a brightness of up to 300 cd/m2.
Complementary to these embedded picture-enhancing functions, the SE370 delivers a smooth, non-distracting and immersive entertainment experience. Supported by AMD FreeSync technology, the monitor synchronizes the screen refresh rate with the frame rate of a user’s AMD graphics card to minimize input latency, as well as to reduce stutter and lag during gaming and video playback.
Additionally, the SE370 monitor’s 4ms response time enables clear and smooth tracking of even the fastest on-screen action without motion blur or ghosting, while a unique game mode quickly activates with the touch of a button. The monitor’s game mode detects changes in scenes and instantly corrects blurry images, enhances colors and alters contrast for improved visibility.
The monitor’s new Eco Saving Plus function reduces screen brightness for increased energy efficiency. In addition to two standard manual settings, an auto-setting reduces energy consumption by approximately 10 percent based on the luminescence of the screen’s black sections in auto on-screen display (OSD) mode. For decreased environmental impact, the monitor’s front cover, stand and circuits also are constructed without PVC.
Along with being an eco-friendly device, the SE370 adds a modern aesthetic and pleasing appearance to homes and workspaces. An ultra-narrow bezel and semi-transparent blue finish frame the monitor’s sleek, white glossy body on all four sides for a clean look. Featuring Samsung’s Touch of Color accents, a T-shaped stand accentuates the monitor’s impactful design with a refined and minimal finish.
