Samsung patents wireless TV

Patent incorporates wireless power receiver and separate transmitter

Samsung has patented a monitor with a wireless power transceiver, suggesting plans for a fully wireless TV.

The patent was revealed by Dutch publication Let’s Go Digital to incorporate a magnetically attached receiver containing a wide power coil and a separate wireless power transmitter.

Samsung wrote in the patent: “Generally, wall-mounted TVs are disposed on the upper portion of a wall spaced apart from the floor of the room or a cabinet.

“In this case, the power line connected to the wall-mounted TV may be exposed, which may degrade the aesthetics of the TV.”

The patent doesn’t specify when, or if, Samsung plans to launch the monitor.
