Samsung is extending the standard 24-month warranty with an additional clause for accidental damage in certain markets at no extra cost. The accidental damage covers broken displays and boards damaged by liquids.
The new warranty will apply over 15 African countries and comes with a few limitations.
The extended warranty covers only two accidental damages, no matter if you’ve destroyed the screen or the board. After that, you’ll have to pay for the service.
The accidental damage warranty is available at no additional cost in South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Namibia, Zambia, Mauritius, Uganda, Cote d’Ivorie, Angola, Botswana, and Mozambique. To get this warranty in one of these countries you just need to register your device with the e-warranty service on your local Samsung official website.
According to George Ferreira, the VP and COO of Samsung Electronics Africa, this new warranty would be extended on more devices in the next couple of months.
