Last month Samsung unveiled its wireless charging S-View Flip cover for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and now they are also bringing out a version of the flip cover designed for the Galaxy S4.
Previously, Galaxy S4 owners had to choose between using an S-View flip cover or a wireless charging cover, as it was impossible to use both at the same time. The new wireless charging S-View flip cover means you don’t have to settle for one or the other.
Like the Note 3’s wireless charging S-View flip cover, the luxury of an S-View cover that can wirelessly charge doesn’t come cheap, with a price of $69.99 without a charging pad included. Considering you can find a decent charging pad for around $30-$40 extra, the total investment comes to somewhere around $100.
While the asking price is certainly a bit steep, there is really no alternative for folks that absolutely want an official Samsung accessory that acts as both an S-View cover and allows for wireless charging. As for whether you actually need wireless charging? If you value the idea of being able to throw the Galaxy S4 onto a charging pad without fiddling for a cord, it might be worth it. Again, it really just depends on your wants and needs.
For those that are interested in picking up the wireless charging S-View cover, you can get your hands on it directly from Samsung in your choice of black or white.
