Variant models of the Samsung Galaxy S4 such as the Mini, Zoom, and Active will come with Samsung SA’s standard 24-month warranty, a spokesperson for the company has told MyBroadband.

This is unlike the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 which launched in South Africa during April 2013 with an “accidental damage from handling” (ADH) warranty.

“Any additional ADH warranty models will be communicated as they become available,” Samsung said when asked whether the recently launched S4 Active, Mini, and Zoom would also be covered under the ADH warranty.

Under the ADH warranty, Samsung Galaxy S4 owners receive two free repairs should they drop the device in water or crack the screen.

As with the standard warranty, ADH is valid for 24-months from the day of purchase, provided owners register their device through the e-Warranty service on Samsung’s website.

Once registered, customers are able to claim two screen repairs, two liquid damage repairs, or one of each for the duration of the warranty.
