Samsung Protection Plus could be the Korean firm's extended warranty plan

Samsung Protection Plus could be the Korean firm's extended warranty plan
A USPTO filed trademark from Samsung suggests that the Korean OEM will soon be offering a new extended warranty plan. Called Samsung Protection Plus, the plan could cover the gamut of Samsung products from refrigerators to smartphones. A new extended warranty plan could be used by Samsung to better compete with Apple. The Cupertino based firm offers AppleCare+ which gives Apple iPhone users two years of warranty coverage and repairs on two cases of accidental damage for a $79 service charge applied to each repair. 

With AppleCare+, Apple iPad owners also get an extended two year warranty, and are allowed two repairs to cover accidental damage at a price of $49 for a service fee on each repair. AppleCare+ costs $99 for both Apple iPhone and Apple iPad owners.

As far as Samsung is concerned, all we have is a trademarked name. Perhaps now that the name has been revealed, we will hear some information about what Samsung has in mind. In the U.S., its products come with a one-year warranty while European law requires that they have two-years of coverage out of the box in that continent.
