For those with butter fingers, having an extended warranty for your electronic gadgets is like having peace of mind, knowing that if anything happens you will be able to get it fixed for free, as long as it is within the terms and conditions of the warranty, of course. Apple has such a program where one can extend the warranty of their device beyond its default warranty, and now it looks like Samsung could soon be introducing a similar program to their customers. This is according to a registration with the USPTO where Samsung has registered for a “Samsung Protection Plus”.
According to the description of the filing, the Samsung Protection Plus plan will offer “extended warranties on consumer electronic products and consumer appliances.” Given that Samsung manufactures a variety of products ranging from televisions, to smartphones and tablets, to computers, and home appliances, it would seem as though this program would basically extend to all of their products, although we would need Samsung to actually confirm and announce said program before we can make any conclusion. No word on when Samsung will be launching the Samsung Protection Plus program, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for it.
