Rumours: A three-month refund policy for the Samsung Galaxy S8?


So according to The Investor, citing Korean outlet Chosun Biz, there’s a rumour going around that Samsung might actually introduce a three-month refund policy if you end up unsatisfied with the Galaxy S8 which seems crazy because that’s a really long period, and honestly, who would dislike owning a high-end Samsung device in the first place?

Normally, refund policies would only be two weeks max. But let’s have a benefit of a doubt here, what if this has something to do with the battery fiasco that happened last year? Maybe this is just Samsung’s way of showing goodwill to their customers, if you remember last year that many unfortunate owners of the Note 7 were forced to return the phones, even though it was perfectly fine (but of course, the company won’t take any chance on that).

On the other hand, having the three-months refund policy also enable Samsung to work on the Bixby voice assistant update better. According to Injong Rhee, Samsung R&D Chief, he told CNET that “..the initial version of Bixby will use only technology that Samsung created in-house, Samsung has committed to future Bixby updates that will help it work with third-party apps to do more on the phone.”

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will be unveiled soon next week at Samsung Unboxed event on 29 March 2017 in New York city, stay tuned for more Samsung news at
