Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini (SM-G800F and SM-G800H) have 2 connectors in back panel left of top-left battery corner - Samsung support reply me that they are for connecting Qi wreless charging receivers:

So adding Qi wireless charging for Galaxy S5 Mini is very easy - we can buy in China any Qi wreless charging receiver with compartible size and place it under back cover for charge phone wirelessly!

Today I have no tested Qi wreless charging receivers for Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and didn't found any compartible in china shops, but I request producing them to some china manufactirers. When I find something available and compartible - I report here.

This contacts just for S-view cover, not for QI-wireless. Galaxy S5 mini haven't possibilities for wireless charging.
I asked Samsung support again and they reply me that S-view cover does not need contacts, but some S-view covers have Qi wireless receivers, so they may use this contacts, here is example for Galaxy S5 full (not mini):

Murz, yes, thank you for info, i hope it is right. I have Original Samsung S-view cover for S5 mini.. photo below. Unfortunately nothing about wireless charging :(
This is interesting, because Samsung support reply me that S-view cover does not need any contacts for normal working. Maybe in your cover this is fake contacts that do nothing? If this is original cover, you can contact Samsung support and ask what those contacts do in it, here is online support: http://www.samsung.com/ru/consumer/mobile-devices/smart-phones/samsung-galaxy/SM-G800FZBASER-support

Those contacts ARE for the smart cover.. It's some kind of tiny electronic circuit so the phone recognizes the smart cover as "genuine", without them the smart cover would not work. Have tested it personally, put some tape over them, and the smart cover isn't responding when opened/closed.. But maybe they COULD be some sort of combo, so you can have smart cover AND Qi Charging via the same contacts, i don't know.. All i know is that the BIG S5 has MORE contacts in the back under the cover, not just two..

Today I buy this phone and check the contacts. They are for the Smart Cover, not for Qi charging :( I talk this to Samsung support and they reply that before they do the mistake when tell me that this is for Qi charging. So I will try to connect Qi charger directly to the internal microusb contacts like here:

Hi,

did you solve the QI charging for the S5 mini?

Although Samsung states the contacts are made for inductive charging, to my eyes they seem to be unexceptionally close to each other. On the other hand, a multimeter reveals that at least one of the pins has electric contact to the battery.

To be honest, I'm startled that the internet apparently provides no easy solution for wireless charging the S5 mini without using a micro-USB adapter (which in my opinion is an unsatisfactory solution) or soldering close to sensitive insides of the device.

Any ideas?

I have contacted several manufacturers and they all say the S5mini comes without this feature.
We need to find a way to solder one wire on the +5V USB plug (the GND can be found elsewhere).
Someone from assistance can help in how to.

This looks the only solution.

CAUTION !!! CAUTION !!! The coil of the QI reciever produce an AC current, and is a short circuit for the 5V of the USD plug if not properly rectified/isolated by at least one diode. This diode, or bridge of diodes is supposed to be in the coil assembly. So, if you are about doing such a mount, ensure that you are soldering the wires the good sens, and that, in this position, they offer a infinite resistance to the 5V before to engage any contact.

    No, I didn't solve. Those contacts is for S View or maybe for other samsung needs, not for Qi charger :(
    I try to connect QI receiver directly to microusb port like here (in photo is other phone model):
