A new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover is now officially available for purchase for $69.99 from Samsung's online store.
The new protective cover comes in two color options - black and white - and is made of polyurethane leather, which makes it look stylish and high-quality.
"The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover protects the smartphone's screen when it is not in use and is easily flipped open for full access to the screen," reads the description on the product page. "When closed, the S-View cover offers instant access to critical features by easily swiping between menus with your finger or via the Galaxy Note S Pen."
"The back easily snaps on, replacing the phone's standard battery cover, without making the phone bulky. Additionally, this cover also enables wireless charging for your Galaxy Note 3. Once installed, you can place your phone on a Qi-compatible charging pad to charge your phone without having to plug/unplug charging cables."
The S-View window allows users to access several features, including the camera, music files, notifications, and more. Users will even be able to accept or reject calls without having to open the cover. An Auto Wake function, meanwhile, is designed to automatically turn the power on once you flip the cover open. Moreover, users can also choose the color of the window in order to customize their viewing screen.
It's worth noting, however, that although this accessory supports wireless charging, it does not include a Qi-compatible charging pad. This means that you must purchase a charging pad separately to take advantage of this function, which implies an extra $30 or $40. Consequently, it may cost you around $100 to get this cover and a compatible charging pad.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover is generally recommended for users who engage in a lot of battery-draining activities on their phablet. Samsung's official wireless charging flip covers were previously available only for the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S4, but the Galaxy Note 3 now joins the party.
