In one of those moves so obvious in retrospect you wonder why the company didn’t do it earlier, Samsung has announced a monitor with a built-in Qi-compatible wireless charging pad. Just place your Samsung S5 or S6 (or other smartphone compatible with the Qi standard for wireless charging) onto the pad beneath the SE370 monitor and the LED will turn green as the phone charges … 


Surprisingly, Samsung hasn’t chosen a 4K monitor for this development: the SE370 is just a full HD one, at 1920×1080. It will be available in both 23.6- and 27-inch versions, but Samsung hasn’t yet revealed either pricing or availability.
