Galaxy S4 charging pad

Samsung has introduced several accessories for the Galaxy S4, the details of which you can read here. One item that we weren’t exactly surprised to see is the wireless charging pad, since we’ve already found out last week that the device will support Qi wireless charging, which is pretty much the most popular standard.

The big question now is whether or not the phone will support the wireless charger out of the box. The answer to that is — it depends.

According to Engadget, who had the chance to test out the Galaxy S4’s wireless charging feature and its pad, the availability will depend on your region and carrier. So it looks like some model will have the feature outright, and some may not support it.

Guess we’ll find out in the coming weeks which carrier will give you the freedom of moving away from the traditional charging method and at what price. Is this something you’d like to get? Let us know in the comments below.
