Philips Brilliance 27″ 4K monitor can charge your laptop

EPI has announced today the Philips Brilliance 27″ 272P7VUBNB display. More specifically, it’s a 27’’ 4K UHD LCD monitor with a built-in USB-C docking station.

One of the big, key features of the monitor is its ability to charge laptops. You can power and charge notebooks directly from the monitor using a single USB-C cable. It should make for a cleaner workstation and keep USB-C ports open elsewhere. However, you don’t necessarily use this port for charging a laptop. You can also use it to connect a keyboard or a mouse.

Philips Brilliance 27″’s display

Similar to other Philips Brilliance displays, the Philips Brilliance 27″ uses “high performance” panels to deliver UltraClear, 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution and IPS technology, according to EPI. This should create “vivid colors, wide viewing angles and remarkably crisp images” on the display.

“IPS displays offer extra wide viewing angles of 178/178 degrees, making it possible to view the display from almost any angle as well as the ability to rotate 90º into portrait mode,” saus EPI. “Ideal for viewing photos, watching movies and browsing the web, as well as demanding professional applications like 3D graphics or working across large spreadsheets, Philips display will make your images and graphics come alive.”

The Philips Brilliance 27″ seems to be focused on a comfortable design. With the Philips SmartErgoBase, the company promises “maximum comfort” while you’re working on the monitor. Its height, swivel, tilt and rotation angle adjustments should allow you to get what works best for you.

It also includes LowBlue Mode, which looks like it makes it easier on the eyes when working on the monitor.
