    Default S5 Active and wireless charging

    So I am looking to upgrade to the s5 active from the HTC one m7. I love the idea of wireless charging. Is this possible on the Active???

    There should be no difference in that aspect of the two phones.

    There are several thin mylar only wafer thin Qi wireless receivers available.
    One of which is the one that I have which does not create a bulge in the stock S5 case at all.

    Take a peek, the price is super right, and a bonus is the charger pad comes with it also.
    $18.99 and you get both the pad and the receiver?

    My Active doesn't have the contacts beside the battery that the regular S5 has for the receiver, and the receivers may block the o-ring channel a bit on the regular S5 anyway. I would love wireless charging, but from what I see, it may not be possible. I hope I'm wrong though.

    Can you post pics of the battery compartment on the S5 Active?

    I was told by Samsung accessories department that they should release wireless charging for g5 active in 2 to 3 months

    I hope it is true, but I doubt it. I just don't see any power connectors in the back:

    Sorry for bringing up an old thread but I just purchased an s5 Active. I knew the s5 supported wireless charging and made the assumption of thinking the Active would be identical. Pretty disappointed when I found out the metal pins were missing in the battery compartment.

    Has there been any new development here. the above response said samsung was working on a wireless charging solution. Was this just fluff or do you think it will happen?
