Last year Samsung announced its self-repair program in partnership with iFixit, starting in the US in August with support for seven devices: the Galaxy S20 and S21 flagships (sans the FE models) and the Galaxy Tab S7+. Today, the company is adding five new devices to the program.
The Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra are now covered, owners can get replacement display assemblies, back panels and charging ports for them. The S22 is about to turn 1 year old and its US warranty is about to run out (unless you bought additional protection with Samsung Care+).
A quick peek at the prices shows that the charging port goes for $67, as does the rear glass panel. Note that the package includes not just the replacement part, but also all the tools that you will need.
The displays vary in price – a new Galaxy S22 display is $167, the S22+ one is $190, the S22 Ultra display is $240.
Besides the smartphones, Samsung added two laptops to the self-repair program – the Galaxy Book Pro 15” and Galaxy Book Pro 360 15”. Seven components are available: case front, case rear, display, battery, touchpad, power key with fingerprint reader and rubber foot.
The self-repair kits for the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy Book Pro devices are available for purchase in the US starting today. iFixit has detailed disassembly guides, this page has the relevant details.
