The Samsung Galaxy S4 is rumored for a March launch with an official Samsung wireless charger, and it looks like the first Galaxy S4 accessory might be posing for photos at the FCC.
Little is known about the Galaxy S4 wireless charging kit, but based on photos and details from the FCC, Samsung’s wireless charger will use the Qi wireless charging standard and measure 90 mm wide with a curved bed to hold a Samsung smartphone.
Engadget uncovered the FCC filing for the Samsung Qi wireless charger of the Samsung wireless charger under the FCC’s watching lens.
The Samsung wireless charger is wide enough to accommodate the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, with room to spare. The Samsung Galaxy S4 is likely to be in between these two devices in size as we expect a 4.99-inch display.
It’s always possible that Samsung is planning this Qi wireless charger for another device, but given the clearance so close to the rumored Samsung Galaxy S4 launch and the use of a the wireless charging standard points to an official reveal alongside the Galaxy S4 in March.
With this wireless charging dock in production there is a chance that Samsung will finally introduce an official Samsung Galaxy S3 wireless charging kit and a Galaxy Note 2 wireless charging kit without the need to produce anything other than replacement backs for the devices.
