[Q] GALAXY NOTE 2 Metal back cover?

Hey guys, anyone know if, for the Galaxy Note 2, a metal back cover instead of the original plastic one is available to purchase from anywhere?
I want to my note 2 to have a metal back and a case is just not cutting it due to the added bulkiness, it would be much easier if instead of the detachable plastic cover, a metal cover is attached instead.
Now i know that the original plastic cover has an NFC antenna within it so im not sure if this is why im unable to find one online.

Any ideas?

Keep checking ebay. I'm sure some Chinese ones will be popping up here real soon.

Wouldn't it cause interference problems? I'm no expert probably wrong; but I assume samsung uses crap plastic because it would block the signals, or at least cause problems.

It would indeed. Unless they embedded some antennae into it and had a way to connect it to the main device antennae (all of them), it'll just reduce signal strength.

A metal back cover would stop NFC working and probably interfere with general signal too.

A rubber or textured back would be a nice option

I like the feel of some of the HTC phones.Where they use a metal back with some sort of rubberised coating. Would be nice to have a back cover with that kind of texture, even if made of plastic

I had a brushed aluminium back on my note 1 which I bought from ebay it was sent from hong kong. Like the others said give it a couple of weeks and there will be new accessories appearing on ebay.

Im on the lookout for a desk dock and maybe an inductive charging kit
