All phones come with warranty, but exactly what that warranty will or will not cover will really depend on the manufacturer, and we suppose also depending on the laws of the country and what are the minimum things that companies need to cover. However with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8, we could be looking at some kind of enhanced protection plan.

This is according to a recent post on WinFuture.de in which a certain “Samsung Guard S8” program was revealed. Assuming the translation is right and the information is accurate, the Guard S8 program basically involves offering Galaxy S8 owners quick repair appointments, a free one-time display replacement, and an extra year of warranty, just to name a few.

It is unclear at this point if this Guard S8 program will be free for all Galaxy S8 owners, free for those who pre-order the phones, or if it will be an opt-in service that customers will have to pay extra for, but we should have the additional details in the coming days. These enhanced protection programs aren’t new and remind us a bit of plans such as HTC’s Uh-Oh program and LG’s protection plan for the LG G4 back in 2015.

In any case like we said details of the Galaxy S8 and its features and services will be revealed on the 29th of March, 2017, so be sure to check back with us then if you’d like to find out out.
