Samsung’s online shop is finally offering the combination of a wireless charging cover and an S-View Flip cover, as its latest accessory for Galaxy Note 3.  The Wireless Charging S-View Flip Cover is available in Black and White, and you can see the notifications through the small window on the front of the cover as well as having access to accept or reject incoming calls, quick camera button, open Action Memo, control music and many more.

3. Xperia Z1 Mini Might Launch in China on January 3rd

The Xperia Z1 Mini has been exclusive to Japanese markets so far, but we expect it to come to an end as there are too many reports and rumors about the international variant of Sony Xperia Z1 Mini. The latest rumors is about announcing the phone in early January during the Chinese New Year Festival in China as the company is preparing to hold an event on January 3rd in China.

We are not sure if this launch means an international launch or not, but the great sales of Z1 Mini (known as Z1 f in Japan) in Japan could be a definite sign for Sony to launch the device internationally sooner than later.
