Samsung India extends device warranties amidst coronavirus lockdown

Samsung India is following the example of a slew of Chinese manufacturers and extending device warranties for products from a wide range of categories, including smartphones, refrigerators, televisions, washing machines, and more, as the world’s largest democracy goes through a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of the coronavirus.

Galaxy S20 pre-order offer redemption period extended as well

Those who own a Samsung product whose warranty is set to expire between March 20 and April 30 can now avail their warranties till May 31. That should be particularly useful for those who purchased one of the three Galaxy S10 models when they went on sale last year. Samsung has also extended the period for redeeming Galaxy S20 pre-order offers from March 31 to April 30, as the company isn’t taking or delivering orders during the lockdown.

India is currently in the middle of a 21-day nationwide lockdown that prohibits citizens from stepping out of their homes for all non-essential purposes, and Samsung and many other manufacturers have stopped taking orders and shuttered their support operations as a result. Whether or not Samsung will bring the warranty and Galaxy S20 pre-order redemption extensions to other countries is unclear at the moment, though we will be sure to let you know once we learn more on that front.
