Samsung’s Latest Monitor Can Wirelessly Charge Your Phone – iGyaan
It happens to the best of us. You are working, you realise your phone’s battery is dying and you connect your phone to the charger located across the monitor or you charge your phone by plugging it to a USB port on your laptop/desktop. Soon your workstation becomes a wired mess. Samsung has found an elegant, if not unique, way to solve this problem – by building a wireless charging station into the monitor.
Can’t you just buy a wireless charger, you might ask. You can, but wireless charger is like your ordinary charger, as it will be located away from your desk and will involve a wire anyway. Thanks to smartphones, we are more prone to multi-tasking and as people prefer to keep their smartphones close to their workstation, it probably makes sense to work on a monitor that has a built-in wireless charger. After all, the aim is to reduce the amount of wires in any way possible.
It is to be noted that the wireless charger will only work with smartphones which have built-in wireless charging capability, like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. The monitor comes in two sizes – 24 inches and 27 inches – and AMD’s anti-gaming flicker tech with a 178 degree viewing angle.
Samsung has not released any launch date or region for now, but is expected to announce more at IFA 2015 in September.
