Samsung's latest monitor is certified for Windows 10, can wirelessly charge your Lumia

Samsung has introduced the SE370, a full-HD monitor that can wirelessly charge Windows Phones compatible with the Wireless Power Consortium's Qi standard, such as the Lumia 930, Lumia 830 and the Lumia 1520. Samsung's own Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge also come with wireless charging support built-in. The monitor comes with a wireless charging area integrated into the stand, allowing you to top up your devices with ease. An LED light notifies you once charging commences.

The SE370 is offered in 23.6-inch (S24E370DL) and 27-inch (S27E370DS) variants, and will be available sometime by the end of the year. On offer with the PLS panel is AMD's FreeSync technology, which reduces screen latency by pushing frames as soon as they're rendered by the GPU, 4ms response time, maximum brightness of up to 300 nits and a 178-degree viewing angle. The SE370 is compatible with Windows 10 and Mac, and comes with one HDMI 1.4, one DisplayPort and one D-Sub ports.

  • Cool
  • Looking for real sense camera built into the monitor
  • Terrible idea. Then you have to scrap your monitor to replace/upgrade your camera.
  • Or, you just add an camera external camera above it. Same with the Qi charger, the base... ...
  • I hate Samsung. I have a smart tv and the OS is terrible, slow, can't watch videos because it lags a lot or I keep getting "out of virtual memory" messages
    And Then crashes. The Samsung galaxy phone is freaking slow, and it's too overpriced for what it is and they only add one or two details to each new phone and the price is like it's a revolutionary technology, which isn't.
  • Did you contact Samsung support? It seems more of an issue with your piece... haven't heard complaints from other models with smart Tvs.
  • Same case with Samsung here, no updates for phones at all, my parents own one each. Bought in 2012 and 2013, no updates, still on 4.0 and 4.1 with lag, reboots etc. While my Lumia 620 from 2012,a budget phone is getting updates still after 3 years :)
  • Likewise... their OS is crap so much so that their smart features are unuseable. Skype on it for me keeps losing connectivity and crashes. I am planning on getting a PC on a stick and using that for more advance features...
  • +920
  • Now Lumia or windows phones may gain market share when windows mobile 10 will release. Samsung monitor will remind people about lumia due to wireless charging.
  • Not only lumia has wireless charging capability, btw.
  • yes , and they are promoting the Samsung S6 edge in the Pub
  • Took them a couple of years the least, in case of apple over 3 I believe, but now most serious mobile contenders have wireless charging. Revolutionary to ppl ever since... I know I know..
  • Apple still doesn't support any form of wireless charging on any of their services...
  • Sadly Samsung's own Galaxy S6 supports wireless charging. Which do you think they would actually push with this?
  • not sad. the more phones that support it, the better support it will get.
  • Wireless charging won't help Lumia achieve sales.
  • But wireless charging combined with continuum...! This kind of monitor combined with a new flagship Lumia can replace many peoples desktops or laptops.
  • +1
  • Allegedly the 950 won't have the integrated Wireless Charger coil (possible only by attaching a cover). Only the XL will have it inside. Good move, Microsoft, good move.. X\
  • Continuum requires a dock. I think it's safe to say that will charge the phone while in use.
  • It is suposed to work trough Miracast as well... So, if this had Miracast - it would be perfect.
  • I don't think Continuum works over (or not just with) Miracast. 
  • Continuum does NOT require a dock. Though there will be a dock available.
  • Windows Central can confirm that this is part of the Continuum hardware needed to act as a PC. http://www.windowscentral.com/four-new-microsoft-devices-leak-continuum-... Needed to act as a PC looks the same as required to me. Of cource things can change between now and release.
  • Yes it will ANY feature that makes the phone more productive and a selling point will help achieve sells. Get a clue
  • Well.. The only company utilizing Wireless Charging for their marketing is Samsung with the Galaxy S6 Commercial at the moment. Not sure if this would remind anyone on how Nokia had this 2012 already integrated - years after palm
  • Precisely.
  • I wonder if Samsung will make Windows 10 mobile phones, and if so, will it be a flagship one? But I guess they're more interested in Tizen as an android competitor. Regardless, I'll be looking to new Lumia phone's.
  • It s a pity Microsoft did not promoted the wireless charging feature of Lumia.... All the people I met think it s a Samsung S6 innovation :S !!!!!
  • Well in the UK Samsung has a Rita Ora ad running all the time. Smart. If msft can't think like this then they lose.
  • Well, that's not the only thing they've neglected. 
  • So... You're seguing into the whole doom and gloom thing Engadget and the Verge want you to follow?   Good for you I guess.
  • LOL mate, Samsung built this with Qi thinking of their own phones, not about Lumias. Actually, I bet they never even thought of them when designing this. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • But you cannot connect your Galaxy S6 Edge to a Monitor like this without expensive MHL adapters, and all you get is a toy desktop designed for phone apps, which is very inferior to the powerfull Windows 10 OS. Continuum will make the next Lumia flagships much more valuable for a phone + PC solution using just your phone + a monitor + a Bluetooth keyboard and Bluetooth mouse.
  • Any details on pricing?
  • And max resolution?
  • It's full HD, its given in the first line itself
  • Samsung needs to clearly state the native resolution but i'm not sure how it works on monitors but i've seen televisions (major brands such as Sony, Samsung, Philips) labelled as Full-HD and yet has a native resolution lesser than 1080p.
  • It's guaranteed that the 23.6" will be 1080p and most 27" displays at minimum started to use a maximum 1440p what has been missing is a decent refresh rate
  • Don't forget about the Qi charging built into the Lumia 920 as well...
  • Which I borrowed to my gf and they stole it from her... :'( best phone ever...
  • God damn it Samsung! Return his phone!
  • You're funny! Tell it again to Samsung to return his 920, and to stop sharing his girlfriend with him ;-).
  • Does it support Miracast? That would be great, not only charge but also can stream a movie or music while charing :)
  • That's actually not a bad idea, we should need that
  • Your name sounds like a peeping tom...
  • I object to that comment. It's very Tomist!
  • Your joke is bad and you should feel bad. :) Besides, they obviously like looking AT windows not in them.
  • Continuum...
  • I could guarantee it does have though at least 2 hdmi & a displayport outputs & does pip
  • I need a FreeSync display in my life
  • hmmm gimmick
  • Yeah completely, I can't reach my screen footer with my arm easily, it would be very annoying to have my phone there.
  • Can't believe Samsung didn't consult with you before making the decision to include this feature.
  • So...because your one case wouldn't need this, it should have been completely scrapped? I have my monitor directly behind my keyboard, I would love wireless charging tech like this. Not everything's about you dude.
  • That's great...
    I think Grroggle should learn something what it's biggest OEM partener is doing -_-
  • I don't get this comment at all.
  • Many are actually wacked in this section this far
  • At the beginning of the article, you can clearly see some words "Windows Phone Compatible".
    That's what google is completely don't give a damm !
  • And from where the hell, Google came into the picture???
  • You are making no sense.  This is a computer monitor.  It's a computer monitor with a built in wireless charger that uses the Qi standard. Computer monitors having nothing to do with Google... 
  • Lol at least someone said what most people are thinking. I don't know if it's early, people haven't had coffee or their meds but the sycophantic crowd are up early. It's a monitor. Just a bally monitor.
  • Ohhk I apologies......
    But i'm currently focusing on that situation where we rarely see some other major brands come up with tag of "the windows phone compatible".
    (no matter what the product is)
  • Samsung won't market this as "Windows Phone compatible" no matter how much you want it to be true. If anything they'll market it as "hey this works great with our Galaxy S6." We're the ones telling you about it to use with your Windows Phone ;-)
  • Samsung didn't bring up the "windows phone compatible" tag, this site did. Samsung are probably marketing it towards all QI compatible devices, you know, like Android phones, which are made by Samsung.
  • End of humanity as we know it...
  • Would be even better if it also has some kind of wireless connectivity to utilise continuum.
  • Cool!
  • If it supports Windows 10 then it must be continuum compatible...
  • Why?
  • Currently it appears that you need a separate device between the phone and a screen, it would be great if this could be incorporated into screens (which I imagine it will be eventually).
  • If you think that then you dont know how whql works. Theres 2 classifications ready & compatible. Even then they wouldn't mix a wm feature with classification requirements
  • No touch capabilities, no thanks, I'll pass.
  • Good point.
  • ^^This! If you dont provide touch, then I will not touch. Why do I want to go into the future with Windows 10 without touch? If I'm buying new devices, I want to have something that allows me to work the way I want to work. Certified for Windows 10... LOL. The things a manufacturer will say to make a sale. Its like saying a particular mousepad is certified to work with a particular brand of desk. As long as the Monitor works with your graphics card, and there is a Windows 10 driver for the graphics card, the monitor doesn't really have to have a driver, other than to tell your computer what brand and model it is and native display abilites are. Really? Is there a monitor on the market that won't work with Windows 10? I'll bet I can get a 35 year old Amber monitor to work with Windows 10, as long as I could get the monitor to work. It would just be in shades of Amber. SMH
  • If you want that then be prepared to pay the price for an aio pc as there are few standalone displays that will do that & most of them are 1080p if not lower resolution
  • Interesting reading but dont be fooled, Samsung done this to further highlight that their S6/Edge(Possibly GN5) has wireless charging. I'd be very surprised if marketing for this monitor inc a Lumia highlighting this feature.
  • Why should Samsung give Lumia a competing gadget free ad?
  • Because they're nice..?
  • No, of course not, it doesn't change the fact that we can still benefit from the development. It's why I really, really hope the next iPhone has QI, because that should mean that every device under the sun will include QI, like Bluetooth speakers, tables, docks, car mounts, whatever.
  • Except that would be working against their propriety docking standard(that they license for a fee)
  • Yeah, but damn it I still want it, and I feel like it's only going to really take off if Apple gets on board, sad but true.
  • Want! Just want!
  • I keep a wireless charger next to my monitor stand. This is a nice idea from Samsung.
  • Does it have touchwiz? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • ... It's only a monitor...
  • LOL don't give them ideas... Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Actually windows and Dell already support this feature which is great for small kids or business applications which require touch on a large screen. The main issue with Samsung touch monitors and their phones is that nobody that has an Android phone wants to write USB drivers for these monitors, but it is possible.
  • Actually Dell sells 22" touch screen Full HD monitors which are great companion devices for sticks like Intel Compute Stick since you can convert your stick into a tablet running Windows 8.1. Dell monitors don't support Android, only Windows since the USB driver is required. For Samsung to work on a Samsung phone you would need your Android phone to have USB touch drivers for this monitor which don't know if exist. 
  • Cool story. Needs more realsense camera bro..
  • That would be cool if the future monitors are Continuum compatible. I would like to do like... Whenever i put my phone beside thw monitor.. It will be automatically switched to continuum mode.
  • Correct if I am wrong..but aren't all monitors universal??? And how come no one has come um with a cable that connects my sisters touch screen to a tv touch screen for example??? (touch screen notebook...and touchscreen tv...independent of which screen I use ..action should be replicated)
  • Pretty much
  • Why is it white. Ffs.
  • Future Continuum display?
  • Lumia730 too support wireless charging...!!:P
  • Now make a 4K version and I might be interested.
  • Are these 1080p panels? I'm looking for 27" 1440p...
  • Obviously without the wireless charging but check out Dell's Ultrasharps. I have a 25-inch 1440p monitor from them and it's very, very good. Minimal bezels, too.
  • Well 27" does seem to be the starting point for most 1440/4k monitors now(at least from Samsung)
  • I splurged on a Dell U3415W ultrawide 3440x1440. It's friggin awesome and killed the need for 2-3 monitor setups. 
  • I never considered a PLS monitor.  I'll have to give it a look, and compare to IPS.  At this point I'll take anything that's better than my TN panel.  Rather nice design as well, which is a surprise in this field. 
  • Finally a good reason to clean the dust from your monitor's base!
  • FINALLY!!! I would have thought this would have been introduced to the market ages ago!
    But tbh, as soon as apple build wireless charging into their iPhones, then I think I will buy their "iMac with wireless charging built into the stand" product...until then though.....This'll do!
  • And price? :-o
  • No built in realsense camera for Windows Hello?
  • How many monitors have built in webcams?
  • Like that's a reason not to? How many monitors have built in wireless charging yet here you are promoting one..
  • While computers don't have a wireless charging slot monitors can fill that gap. However, more and more computers include Windows Hello compatible hardware, so from that standpoint, weighing up the pros and cons [of adding this feature to a monitor] should reveal that this would only lead to a higher price with less of a real benefit for consumers.
  • Nice. I'll ask for one of those at work. My phone is usually lying on the table anyway, so I as well may put it on a monitor stand.
  • Samsung supporting continuum before it is cool.
  • Price ??
  • Compatible with windows hello camera would be a slam dunk.
  • Only samsung can make a lovely shade of blue spine-tingling tacky. #sbns
  • Nice wonder what price rabge
  • Take my money.
  • Assuming you've modified your 1520, of course.
  • Samsung might push its Galaxy series vs Lumia since they have Q1 charging. I for one is waiting for that OEM that makes a dum 12" high resolution dockable or phone insertable monitor with Munchkin integration to harness the power of this forth coming premium Lumia with Continuum. ($150 - $200 price range will be cool) the one that also supports Qi charging will rule This way, I have the phone and win10 desktop with my LTE
  • I hope they make another announcement when they decide pricing and a release date. My adhd will keep me from remembering to follow up. 
  • will be even more interesting if they make monitors with a Continum dock and wireless charging together.
  • Yes.  I'll take one in black please, to go.
  • The next big thing is here?
  • Interesting...a Samsung products that actually interest me.
  • How much? I really want one. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Personally I hate the whole FreeSync vs G-Sync battle.  I wish NVidia would create a spec where users could plug-in a G-Sync module to the back of a monitor and you can switch between G-Sync and FreeSync. Otherwise, you are stuck with if you want a FreeSync mo nitor you are forced to get an AMD GPU.  While you can use an NVidia GPU, you do not get the benefit of FreeSync -- basically locking you into a certain GPU/Display Technology combo. I like the Qi charger idea, but I can just as easily plug into the the USB port on my keyboard.  All in all I hope that with Windows 10 we get better integration and integration with Windows Hello, Miracast, Qi charging, Bluetooth 4.0 etc. 
  • I will take one in 27" white,  is it touch enabled?
  • Interesting. Clever
  • It's pretty.
  • Qi has won. Put it in all the phones on earth from now on. PMA needs to go away.
  • Looks great, but will it come in black? I have no desire for a white monitor, especailly since being "stylish" is part of the pitch they're using to sell me.
  • What exactly 'certified for Windows 10' means? I don't see any exclusive feature on this monitor. Any ideas or hints?
  • Why does the article mention the Lumia 1520? Or doesn't has wireless charging, only thru a case and it wasn't Qi.
  • Still wouldn't buy a samsung.
