When Samsung announced the Galaxy S III back at the start of May, it revealed a wireless charging dock for the phone. Earlier, we had heard rumors that it might feature a new-such charging technology, greatly increasing the range over which the phone could be delivered power. While Samsung didn’t end up making the kind of claims we heard rumored (charging from one-to-two meters away), it did mention that the GS3’s wireless charging would be unique, calling it the “first wireless resonant charger”.

We’re still waiting to see Samsung’s charger released, and if its resonant technology is really able to differentiate itself from earlier inductive chargers. Some rumors say we’ll have to wait until September before it’s ready to launch; in the interim, other manufacturers are jumping at the chance to bring wireless charging to the GS3, and ZENS looks like it will be the first.

The company makes inductive chargers for the iPhone, and is now expanding that lineup to include the Galaxy S III. As per usual, taking advantage of this kind of feature means swapping-out the phone’s rear cover for one with the requisite inductive antenna. ZENS has models in both of the GS3’s color options, though you’ll have to live with losing Samsung’s logo on the phone’s rear in favor of that of ZENS.

It may not be the solution we were anticipating, but until Samsung comes through with its official charger, this should do in a pinch.

Update: ZENS isn’t the only game in town, and Verizon has its own wireless charging solution for the GS3.
