Samsung Expands Self-Repair Program to Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5
- Samsung is expanding its self-repair program, in partnership with iFixit, to include the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5, along with the entire S23 series, Galaxy Tab S9 series, and Galaxy Book 2 Pro series.
- The self-repair program, launched last summer, allows Samsung Galaxy customers to access kits to fix their devices when facing issues like damaged screens, cracked back glass, or problems with charging ports, speakers, SIM trays, and buttons.
- The expansion of the program covers the flagship S23 series and foldable lines, enabling users to perform self-repairs on their devices. However, specific pricing details for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 kits are yet to be disclosed.
- The self-repair program is designed to empower users to address common issues with their devices on their own. It offers parts kits for various repairs, allowing users to replace damaged components without the need for professional assistance.
- Samsung’s self-repair program is part of an industry trend to provide consumers with more control over the maintenance and repair of their devices, reducing reliance on specialized technicians.
- The self-repair kits are not only limited to the U.S., as Samsung announced an expansion to more European countries, including Denmark, Greece, Hungary, and Portugal.
- While self-repair may not be suitable for everyone, Samsung continues to offer alternative repair solutions, including over 1,000 official and authorized repair locations in the U.S. and mobile and mail-in service options for users who prefer professional assistance.
- The expansion of the self-repair program aligns with broader industry efforts to promote sustainability, reduce electronic waste, and provide users with more choices for maintaining and extending the life of their electronic devices.
These models are currently part of Samsung’s self-repair program.
