Earlier this week, Samsung Electronics announced that it will run a three day free trial period program for its foldable smartphone models. This offer will be available in the company’s home country, South Korea.
According to TheElec report, the new program will be a part of Galaxy To Go service and will lend foldable handsets like the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G to its customers. The South Korean tech giant aims to run the free trial period till 30th of April 2021. Till then, consumers can request the service and rent the devices at one of the 63 physical stores that the company runs in the country.
Furthermore, the smartphone maker will also have a pop up message appear to those who borrow these foldable devices that will explain their features as well. The models being given away for the trial period will also have features added via the recent One UI 3.1 update. The new update arrives last month along with the company’s 2021 flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S21
The move from the company is likely to boost the sales of its foldable handsets in the local market. While Samsung does hold a dominating position in the foldable smartphone market, it is expected that more brands will soon compete in this segment as well. So, the move is likely to expand awareness and demand for its devices in the market.
