The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 will join the entire S23 series, the Galaxy Tab S9 series, and the Galaxy Book 2 Pro series in Samsung’s self-repair program this month. A partnership with iFixit, the repair program initially only supported S20, S21, and Tab S7 devices. At the start of 2023, the S22 line and some Galaxy Pro books were added, and now, the entire flagship S23 and foldable lines are joining the fix-it-yourself family.
The Galaxy foldables are not listed on iFixit’s page yet, so we don’t know what the prices will be. But as the Google Pixel Fold costs around $900 for a parts kit to repair the large inner screen through its partnership with iFixit, I’m guessing it's not cheap.
The full list of Samsung devices you can now fix yourself is below, and you can visit iFixit’s page for details on your specific model.
Launched last summer, Samsung’s self-repair program gives Galaxy customers access to everything they need to fix their own devices when the screen gets damaged or the back glass cracks. It can also help with repairing charging ports, speakers, SIM trays, and the buttons on the phones and tablets as well as several parts for the company’s laptops.
Samsung also announced that more European customers are getting access to the self-repair kits as the program expands to Denmark, Greece, Hungary, and Portugal.
If you don’t fancy DIY-ing your broken Samsung foldable (just because it can be done doesn’t always mean you can do it... ), there are over 1,000 official and authorized repair locations in the US and mobile and mail-in service options.
