Samsung puts Galaxy S5 wireless charging covers up for pre-order

Galaxy S 5 Wireless Charging Cover

The Galaxy S5 may not be out yet, but that isn’t stopping Samsung from getting right to work on preparing accessories to be sold alongside it. If you’re into wireless charging, then today’s your lucky day, as Samsung just put the wireless charging covers for the Galaxy S5 up for pre-order. The wireless charging covers only come in black and white, but on the bright side, there are two models to choose from.

For $29.99, you can get a simple wireless charging backplate that will replace the existing backplate on your Galaxy S5. This really looks no different than the standard backplate, but you suddenly have wireless charging. For a heftier $69.99, you can purchase a wireless charging S View flip case. This case features Samsung’s faux leather styling and adds a bit more function and protection than the other wireless charging cover. Simply follow the links below to get to any of the cases, as well as the wireless charging pad, which uses the Qi standard, so any Qi charger should work with these covers.

Are you planning to purchase any of these cases to complement your Galaxy S5?

    Does the back cover make the phone thicker?

    • Charles

      I asked this of Otterbox re the Defender case and they said the qi case makes the S5 slightly thicker and their case wouldn’t accommodate it. So I’ll be waiting for a slim qi insert.

    Well, it is almost two weeks now as I am using Galaxy S5 and could say that it is the best phone I have ever had till date. Yes it is little annoying to charge my device by removing flap frequently. Therefore, charging my device with wireless charger is the best option to charge it without messing up with wires anymore.
