If you have already pre-ordered a Galaxy S5 or are planning to get one when it launches, you can now find Samsung Galaxy S5 Wireless Charging Covers on Samsung's website, complete with pricing details.

Samsung Galaxy S5 wireless charging battery covers, for instance, come with a $29.99 price tag. Such a cover enables wireless charging on all Qi-compatible wireless charging pads, allowing users to charge their device without having to connect or disconnect cables. There's also no need to remove or replace the Galaxy S5's USB 3.0 port plug when charging, as this cover will not interfere with it in any way. The wireless charging battery cover is easy to install and will replace the smartphone's standard battery door.

The company is also offering official Samsung Galaxy S5 wireless charging S-View Flip Covers, which go up to $69.99. These covers will offer the exact same status, missed event notifications, and shortcut display as a regular Galaxy S5 S-View flip cover, with the great difference that it allows users to charge their device with less hassle.

This type of S-View Flip Cover enables wireless charging on all Qi-compatible wireless charging pads. Just like the wireless charging back cover, this accessory will also allow users to charge their device without having to connect or disconnect cables. Also as the other cover, the wireless charging S-View Flip Cover doesn't require users to remove or replace the Galaxy S5 USB 3.0 port when charging the smartphone.

"The cover was designed by Samsung to seamlessly match the look and feel of your Galaxy S5 ensuring that your phone maintains its original style and slim profile. In addition, Samsung has incorporated sealing rubber into the battery cover to retain the Galaxy S5's water resistance," touts the company.

Samsung lists both of these accessories as "Coming soon," but doesn't mention an exact date for when they will start shipping. You can find the wireless charging back cover here, and the wireless charging S-View Flip Cover at this link. The company also has several other cases available for the Galaxy S5, as well as an official spare battery.
