Display specialist AOC announces a new portable touchscreen monitor with USB-C connectivity. The 39.6 cm (15.6″) IPS display 16T2 comes with Full HD resolution and can be connected to a laptop, desktop/server or a smartphone through its two USB-C ports (utilizing DisplayPort alternate mode) or its Micro HDMI port. Thanks to the built-in 8000 mAh battery, the 16T2 can be used on-the-go without requiring a power outlet and can even act as a power bank and charge a smartphone. Less than a centimeter in thickness, a featured smart, foldable cover for portrait and landscape orientations and VESA wall mount option make this monitor a great tool for mobile business users as well as mobile gamers, students, IT administrators, small businesses, DIYers, tinkerers, and more.Take your multi-monitor with you

Users appreciate how a multi-monitor setup increases productivity and comfort on their desktop, and now with the 16T2 this is also possible in a mobile environment, with the addition of 10-point touch input (Windows 10 certified). In its sleek aluminium-finish AOC’s 16T2, looks just like a tablet. But unlike a tablet, which will become obsolete and a piece of electronic waste once its processor and operating system become old, slow and incompatible, the 16T2 is simply a mobile display, unrestricted by fast-aging technology. This makes the 16T2 a future-proof investment for years to come.

“Portable monitors are one of the fastest-growing technology markets in Europe, and we at AOC understand the need for such convenient products for home, office but most importantly mobile work. 16T2 is a perfect, flexible solution for anyone who appreciates more screen space for their work or entertainment – wherever they are.” says Cesar Acosta, Product Manager Touch Screens and Accessories at AOC International Europe.

Equipped for more

Due to its double USB-C inputs and Micro-HDMI input, this portable monitor connects a variety of computers, both legacy as well as the modern ones. When connected via Micro-HDMI, connect the monitor to the PC with the USB-C to USB-A/C to enjoy the touch function. This cable is included in the box. The 16T2 also comes with built-in stereo speakers (2x 1 W).

The 16T2 also acts as a power bank both when switched on and off. When connected to the mains with the USB-C adapter instead, the 16T2 can charge itself and a connected smartphone. 2x USB-C ports on both sides make it possible to charge on the left port and transfer display signal from the right, or vice versa. This makes for a flexible setup that is easily assembled in no time.

Endless possibilities

The ease of use, flexibility and portability of the AOC 16T2 allow a wide range of use cases:

  • Extending a laptop display for more screen space while working on-the-go
  • As a note-taking tool for students
  • As a productivity booster while working from home (especially in smaller spaces)
  • As a server display
  • As a self-service kiosk display in public spaces
  • As a display for tinkerers, or engineers
  • As a display for mobile gaming or entertainment
  • As a main entertainment display by connecting to a smartphone

AOC’s 16T2 is available as of October 2020 at an MSRP of £279 (~ 360 USD).
