Screen repairs can be extremely expensive in today’s era of curved smartphones, but costs could sky-rocket with the move to foldable phones.
People who buy the Samsung Galaxy Fold can take advantage of a special offer from the Korean company though. A leaflet inside the box notes that users are entitled to one out-of-warranty Galaxy Fold screen repair at $149. Check out the leaflet below.
This price is actually cheaper than screen repair costs for Samsung’s Galaxy S10 series, with the Galaxy S10 Plus screen repair putting you out by $269. Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10e repair will set you back $199.
We’ll likely hear more about screen repair costs when the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X launch in more markets (or launch in general, in the case of the Huawei device). But I wouldn’t be surprised if a standard screen repair costs the same as a mid-range or affordable flagship phone.
