The self-serviceable models in South Korea are as follows:

  • Cell phones:

    • Galaxy S21 series
    • Galaxy S22 series
  • Laptop:
    • Galaxy Book Pro 15.6″
  • 32-inch Smart TVs:
    • UN32N4000AFXKR
    • UN32N4010AFXKR
    • UN32N4020AFXKR

In the case of the notebook, it is possible to repair up to seven parts: screen, battery, touchpad, power button with fingerprint reader, front case, back case and rubber elements. According to Samsung, these are the parts that had the most repairs requested by users, which is why they are part of the beginning of the program.

After completing the repair, users will be able to rate the procedure through the Samsung Members app. Used parts must be returned to Samsung for the user to receive a partial refund and safe disposal, which is essential in the case of batteries and screens, for example.
