Samsung Foldables has expanded its self-repair service, allowing owners of Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5 to fix their phones through the do-it-yourself program. The self-repair initiative, in collaboration with iFixit, is being extended to cover more Galaxy products, including foldable phones and tablets.
The program offers users access to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) device parts and step-by-step guides, facilitating tasks such as screen or battery replacements. Samsung plans to add seven more products to the self-repair program this month, covering a range of devices from PCs and smartphones to tablets. The newly eligible devices include the Samsung Foldables Galaxy S23 series, Tab S9 series, and the Galaxy Book2 Pro series.
Samsung’s commitment to sustainability and reducing electronic waste takes a significant stride with the expansion of its self-repair program. The pricing structure for the fix kits demonstrates a thoughtful approach, acknowledging the diverse range of devices and their specific repair needs. An illustrative example is the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Screen and Battery set, priced at $240. This transparent and tiered pricing system ensures that users have a clear understanding of the costs associated with repairing their devices, promoting transparency and trust.
The decision to expand the self-repair program beyond its initial launch in the United States to an additional 30 countries across Europe showcases Samsung’s global commitment to environmental responsibility. By making repair options more accessible to users worldwide, Samsung not only empowers individuals to take charge of the maintenance of their devices but also contributes to a more sustainable approach to consumer electronics.
