These days, wireless charging is a standard feature in flagship and high-end smartphones, but still some companies like Samsung don’t include this feature in their phones. We’re talking about Samsung’s flagship phone, the Galaxy S4 which does not supports wireless charging out of the box. Now that’s a problem for some users who’re in desperate need of this feature.

Some companies like Google know the importance of wireless charging and that’s why they don’t forget to include it. For example the Nexus 4 and the new Nexus 5 support wireless charging out of the box, but not Samsung.

Samsung launches new wireless charging flip cover for Galaxy S4

The good news is that Samsung has now launched new wireless charging S-View Flip Covers for the Galaxy S4. Well, as they say, better late than never. The company is late only 8 months, and now in the next two months, the company is planning to launch the new Galaxy S5, successor to the Galaxy S4.

Now with this new S-View Wireless Charging Cover Folio Case, you can enable your Galaxy S4 for wireless charging with any Qi-based wireless charger. Since Samsung is officially offering this case, you don’t need to settle for any cheap or third-party case as it is always better to purchase from the official manufacturer. Not to mention that there’s no modding or tweaking required, all you need to do is to simply fit this case and you’re good to go.

Once you fit this case, all you need to do is to place your phone on any Qi-compatible wireless charging mat. Well, it’s that easy. If you don’t have the charging mat, then you’ll need to purchase it also, and only then will you be able to get the full advantage of this new case for your S4.


Beware old models of this case which are floating around

If you’re thinking to purchase the S-View Flip Cover, then note that you’ll need to buy the new model which supports wireless charging, as there are also some old cases floating around which don’t support it. The new S-View Flip Cover will set you back $69.99 from any Samsung authorized dealer or online site, and can also be purchased from Amazon for $54.32.
