Along with news that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be launching in the US starting this month, Samsung also announced the list of accessories we could look forward to down the line. The list contains a healthy mixture of cases, docks, battery-saving utilities and audio devices. For starters, the standard Flip Case is back in an assortment of colors and can be had for $40. For $30, you can get the traditional cover that will protect the back and sides of the device, creating a buffer between the surface of the device and whatever it hits when you eventually drop it (oh, it will happen).
One new type of cover Samsung is introducing is the S View Flip Cover, which has a clear window that will give you a quick look at the time, data, battery life, messages, and more while the cover is still closed. And like the regular flip cover, opening the case will automatically wake your phone up. This’ll run you about $59. Also unique to the Galaxy S4 line is the external battery charger that can fit Samsung’s standard 2,600mAh battery.
The Galaxy S4 will also be able to share many of the same accessories compatible with the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, and Galaxy Note 8.0. These include the AllShare Wireless Hub for $100, a device that will let you beam your pictures, video, music and more to your television. The same Smart Dock that Galaxy Note 2 users can be used with the Galaxy S4, and that also costs $100. A universal desktop media dock, vehicle dock, MHL adapter, external battery, headphones, headsets and more are all available at varying costs. You can view the full assortment of accessories in the fact sheet below, and start planning your purchases to make sure you have what you need by the time the device launches starting next week.
