This Samsung battery pack also comes with a faux leather back
Meet the EB-PG900B – a Samsung-branded external battery pack that comes with... yes, you got it right - faux leather and stitch finish! The accessory has a capacity of 6,000mAh, which should be more than enough to fully charge any smartphone and partially bring a tablet back from the dead. Samsung's battery pack sports an LED indicator and a retracting microUSB cable. The whole shebang has dimensions of 5.51 x 2.93 x 0.43 inches and tips the scales at 6.1 oz (173gr), which means that its overall size is pretty similar to the one of a, say, Galaxy S5.
If you like Sammy's latest faux leather design trends and you are in the market for an external battery pack, then the EB-PG900B could be just the thing for you. The battery pack is currently available only in India – it comes in white and its price is no more or less than $60 (Rs. 3,599). Hopefully, Samsung's faux leather power bank will eventually make it to other markets across the globe in the near future.

I have heard people say that faux leather is fake, its cheap, ugly etc.....but I think its better than killing an animal for 'original leather'...( but I do agree that Samsung phones don't look as good as the other flagship phones.... And aluminum looks better than plastic)

and plastic is more dangerous to the environment than the metal.

You will only hear that on tech websites where many people hate Samsung just for fun. The fake leather actually looks good and feels good. I havnt seen any professional reviews that talks negative about the note 3 fake leather back.

There are people who think that dead animals' skin is better than faux leather( even if it looks just like original leather)....typical Samsung haters ask for aluminum which is okay because that would make the devices look better...original leather doesn't.

I had a leather cover for my iPad and it got pretty frickin' disgusting from the hand oil over the course of a month. I'll never get leather again for anything that comes into contact with my skin on a regular basis, that's for damn sure.

Considering 'faux' is a synonym for 'fake' they'd be right

we are not discussing about the meaning of the word 'faux', no one is telling that faux leather is original leather, I am telling why using 'faux' leather is better than using original leather.

I'd imagine if this was bundled with a flagship without a dramatic climb in price, it'd be phone of the year.
I have a 6000mah rock, sold for 30, this could be easily packaged with a phone.

lol... whenever Samsung comes up with a design that sells a lot, they squeeze every bit of profit out of it, think GS3 and Note 3 ... I hope we wouldn't find a 4K tv with faux leather... but really the battery looks amazing here ..

Don't like power bank in general. I buy phone with removable battery only.
