Galaxy S7 may come with expanded screen warranty thanks to a more durable, watertight chassis
the S7 might use a new magnesium alloy material for the frame, so these claims could have some merit. In fact, the phone has apparently been reworked in such a way in terms of durability, that it would be able to withstand drops without complete shattering of the glass on the front or back.However, the source goes further than that in the revelations about how rugged would the Galaxy S7 be. Eldar claims that the handset will be more structurally sound compared to its predecessor, thanks to a reinforced frame and rearranged internals. We already heard a rumor that
Samsung, says Eldar Murtazin, is so certain of its new chassis construction, that in certain markets it may introduce a new expanded warranty for the device that will have the screen replaced at little or no cost if you drop the phone and break the glass within the first year of ownership. Given Samsung's monopoly on Super AMOLED screen replacement packages, and their cost, this will be a welcome news, if it materializes. In Russia at least, this "VIP" warranty will be given if you buy the phone through the official Samsung channels, says the source, but it's not yet known how the company will proceed for other regions. Well, all will be revealed in just three short weeks, so stay tuned for our complete coverage of the S7 unveiling and preview festivities come February 21st at the MWC expo.
