Major device manufacturer aims to “extend lifecycle”

Samsung has launched its ‘self-repair’ programme in the UK.

According to a statement from the company, the initiative supports repairs to the Galaxy S20, S21 and S22 series, as well as the Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360. It gives access to tools and repair kits.

The move follows the recent launch of the programme in Korea, following its original launch in the US in 2022. In order to operate the scheme in Europe, Samsung is collaborating with parts distributors such as ASWO.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Samsung is committed to expanding its self-repair program in the near future to include more devices, repair tools, manuals and markets.”

Samsung president and head of mobile experience, TM Roh, said: "Samsung is working to extend the lifecycle of our devices to encourage users to experience the optimised performance of their Galaxy device for as long as possible. We are committed to scaling access to our self-repair program around the world while improving the repairability of our products."
