With just a few weeks (or maybe a couple of days?) to go, Samsung have announced what accessories will be officially available to go with the Galaxy S5 at launch.
Much like the S4 before it, the official case is a windowed affair – enabling users to peak at all of the key on-screen information without having to crack open the phone and touch the screen. The cover has a “leather-look finish” and comes in 5 metallic covers: black, white, green, rose gold and pink. I guess, umm, “luxury brown” didn’t catch on.
Perhaps more excitingly is the wireless charging option. All you have to do is pop a new backing plate on to the phone and set it down to on the charger unit to charge. Why the S5 couldn’t have shipped with this built in is beyond me – but looks pretty cool nonetheless.
Less exciting there’s also going to be a multi-device charging cable, which will no doubt be useful if plug sockets are at a premium. No pricing has been announced yet, but if past generations are anything to go by, expect all of the above accessories to be priced just north of what you’d consider a reasonable amount to pay.
