Samsung has eventually come up with the wireless charging kit. Fews months ago Samsung came up with Galaxy S4 device, back then Samsung promised that it would come with wireless charging which would be one of the latest features in the smartphone.
Surprisingly, that was not the first time Samsung had promised wireless charging for a Galaxy S series. Reportedly, Samsung Galaxy S3 which was released last year was also intended to have the wireless-charging capability in it.
However, at least the Galaxy S4 has finally received the wireless charging kit now. The kit consists of a Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Cover. Powered by the Qi Wireless Power Consortium, the kit will cost about $90 (Rs. 5,098) with the pad selling for $49.99 (Rs. 2,831) and the cover selling for $39.99 (Rs. 2,265).
Samsung has listed its wireless charging pad as well as charging cover on its official India e-store as well and they are now available for purchase. In addition to the wireless charging kit, the company has also revealed the pricing of Body Scale (which can measures the weight of the user and automatically transmit it to the S Health app on your Samsung Galaxy S4 via Bluetooth and can support up to 4 users) and Heart Rate Monitor (which is basically a chest strap and it monitors the heart rate while jogging or cycling in real time. The heart rate monitor then sends the data to S Health or Running Mate app.) accessories for the Indian market. Both accessories are priced at Rs. 4,699.
As wireless charging is not supported out of the box on Galaxy S4, one needs to get a new back cover, which supports wireless charging. The wireless charging cover has been priced at Rs. 2,699 and can be purchased from the official e-store while Wireless Charging Kit (Pad + Cover) Combo for Galaxy S4 will be priced at Rs. 5,899.
