Samsung Expands DIY Repair Program: Galaxy S23, Fold 5, and More Join the Self-Repair Revolution

Published on

Samsung has taken a significant leap forward in empowering its customers with the latest expansion of its DIY repair program, surpassing the limited options available before 2022. A recent update from the tech giant includes the inclusion of flagship models like the Galaxy S23, Fold 5, Flip 5, and even select projectors, allowing users to take control of their device maintenance.

In an official blog post, Samsung unveiled the latest additions to its self-repair initiative in the US, providing consumers with the ability to purchase genuine parts and kits from reputable sources like iFixit. The collaboration ensures that users can confidently replace their screens or batteries with authentic Samsung components.

The list of newly added products is impressively extensive. Noteworthy inclusions are last year’s flagship phone, the Galaxy S23, and some of Samsung’s more delicate devices, such as the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip 5. What adds an extra layer of excitement is the incorporation of non-mobile devices like several 2023 TVs and Galaxy Book laptops into the repair program.

While Samsung had previously announced upcoming support for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy S23, this recent announcement specifically caters to devices in the US.

It’s essential to note some limitations imposed by Samsung for each device. Phones and tablets, for instance, allow for the replacement of speakers, SIM tray, side key, volume key, parts of the display assembly, back glass, and charging ports. For Samsung’s PCs, users can switch out the left and right speakers, fans, display, battery, power key, touchpad, rubber feet, and casing.

The breadth of possibilities for home repairs using Samsung’s new repair kits is expanding. A notable improvement is evident when comparing the available repair options on iFixit for the Samsung Galaxy S22, which is currently limited to a screen/battery kit, back glass, and charging port. Notably absent are repair kits for buttons, speakers, or SIM trays—a substantial improvement in the DIY repair program.

While specific timelines for the availability of DIY repair kits for newly listed devices like the Galaxy S23 or Fold 5 remain undisclosed by Samsung, anticipation is high for these kits to hit online markets soon. Samsung users can now look forward to a more comprehensive and accessible self-repair experience, further reinforcing the brand’s commitment to user empowerment.
