Samsung has finally released its wireless charging pad and cover for the Galaxy S4, after first announcing the new accessories at the beginning of June. We got a chance to try out the new Samsung accessory recently and it works pretty seamlessly. Just snap the special charging cover onto the S4 and place it on the pad; a notification will quickly pop up on your screen as the handset begins to charge.
It’s too bad that Samsung wasn’t able to release a wireless charging pad that worked without the accompanying case. The pad currently costs $49.99 while the charging cover is priced at $39.99, but we think the Galaxy S4 probably should have launched with support built-in.
The back cover will eventually come in both black and white, but for now only the white version is in stock.
