The family of accessories for the Galaxy S4 has a new arrival. Hot on the heels of Samsung's launch of a similar product for the Galaxy Note 3, the wireless charging S-View cover for the Galaxy S4 is now available. Before now, if you wanted to charge your phone wirelessly, you'd have to take the cover off and replace it with a wireless charging back. It's important to note that there is no difference between this and the regular S-View accessory, other than the additional contact points to enable Qi charging. This new accessory should make aficionados of these products happy since they can now have their cake and eat it too.
As with all official Samsung accessories, this one is on the pricey side. The cover's MSRP is $69.99 by itself, without a wireless charger. It's presently available in both black and white, and in-stock at Samsung's online shop, Amazon, and Best Buy. As far as Amazon goes, there appears to be a large price discrepancy between the black and white versions. The black one sells for $54.98 while the white one sells for full retail price. In the case of Best Buy, buyers should beware. The retailer appears to have replaced its listing for the regular wireless charging back with this product instead, but kept the SKU the same. In addition, only the white one shows as an S-view cover. Clicking over to the listing for the black version will show you a regular wireless charging back. This could simply be an error in Best Buy's inventory system, but an error like that could end up netting you the wrong product, nevertheless
