Samsung Expands Self-Repair Program to More Markets and Devices
As the world becomes increasingly concerned about environmental sustainability, companies are taking steps to reduce electronic waste. One significant initiative is allowing users to repair their own devices, rather than discarding them and contributing to the planet’s electronic waste problem.
One company at the forefront of this movement is Samsung. In 2022, the company launched its self-repair program in the US, and recently expanded it to South Korea, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, and select European countries. Now, Samsung has announced that the self-repair program is reaching 30 additional European markets, including Denmark, Greece, Hungary, and Portugal. More importantly, the program will now include repair kits for foldable phones for the first time.
According to Samsung, this expansion of the self-repair program to include foldable devices gives Galaxy users greater convenience and options to extend the life of their products. Users will have access to original parts and tools, ensuring that repairs are done with high-quality materials. This is an important step in helping electronic devices last longer and reducing overall waste.
Samsung’s self-repair program now covers a wide range of Galaxy devices, including the Galaxy S23 series, Tab S9 series, and Galaxy Book2 Pro series. This move is just one more way for users to join Samsung’s journey of sustainability and responsible resource usage.
In addition to hardware repair, Samsung is also focused on extending the useful life of devices through software updates and security support. The company aims to provide the longest period of system update support to keep devices safe and functional for as long as possible.
The expansion of Samsung’s self-repair program is a positive development in the effort to reduce electronic waste and promote product longevity. By empowering users to repair their own devices, companies like Samsung are taking important steps to build a more sustainable future.
