Galaxy S8 said to come with 3-month refund window

Samsung is so confident that its fans with love the Galaxy S8 that it could give them a generous three-month period to try the device before deciding whether they should keep it. A report out of South Korea claims that adopters who return their handset before the window closes will get a full refund — no questions asked.

Although confidence in Samsung wasn’t significantly dented by the whole Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the company is still keen to prove to customers it can be trusted. It has already implemented a strict eight-step battery check for future devices like the Galaxy S8, which aims to ensure that no further faults can go undiscovered before a public launch.

On top of that, to give customers complete peace of mind with its next-generation handset, Samsung will offer a three-month refund window, according to Chosun Biz. This will give customers plenty of time to use the device and all its new features before finally deciding whether or not they wish to keep it.

It seems unlikely too many Android fans will want the refund. The Galaxy S8 is expected to bring a gorgeous new design complete with a larger display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 processor, a next-generation virtual assistant called Bixby, and features like iris scanning and super slow-motion video.

Nevertheless, the three-month return window should settle potential buyers who are worried they’ll end up with another Samsung device that has a tendency to get way too hot.
