Reports of green lines appearing on the display of some Samsung devices have been circulating since last year. This is a problem so big that the company has officially responded in some markets by offering a free one-time screen replacement for out-of-warranty devices.

Samsung has been offering these screen replacements for select models in India since last year, and the company has now expanded the list of supported models to include the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 series.

There is now a deadline to take advantage of this replacement offer

This green line issue has been mainly reported on devices with Super AMOLED displays. Reports of the issue have resurfaced in recent weeks, highlighting that even more devices are now affected, forcing Samsung to extend its free replacement offer to more models.

Samsung India has been offering free screen replacement for affected devices since July last year. Eligible devices included the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Note 20 series. The company has now expanded this list to include the Galaxy S21 series and the Galaxy S22 series.

Like last year, all devices will also be offered a free battery and kit replacement, but it appears there is now a deadline to take advantage of this offer. Appointments must be booked at a Samsung Service Center until April 30, 2024 to get a free replacement from the company.

Customers essentially get their entire device refurbished with this offer. A new lease on life for a device like the Galaxy S22, which is still relatively modern and will also have software support for a while, is a deal too good to pass up.
