Samsung promised to return a half of cost of Galaxy S20

Samsung started an attraction of unprecedented generosity. The company promises to redeem the Galaxy S20 smartphone for a half of cost in two years after use, having paid cash, but not a discount for new. Depending on modification it will be possible to receive from 500 to 800 dollars. In addition to an obvious condition — not earlier, than in two years, there are several important restrictions. Of course, the smartphone should be in a "good" status — completely operable, with the whole screen, without serious scratches and chips. But the most important — the smartphone should be purchased directly from Samsung via the website[1].

An opportunity to add an option of share repurchase appears only at the very end of process of purchase of the smartphone on the website of Samsung. And at the moment the option is available only the North American market. There is an opinion that if it will positively affect Galaxy S20 sales, the stock can be distributed also to other markets. And, of course, upon purchase of the smartphone in any retail network or at the operator no program of share repurchase is offered. And classical trade-in assumes payment not by money, but a discount for purchase of other smartphone.

Phones support record of video in  permission 8K.

In the Multikadr mode  of Galaxy S20 can make several photos and video at once, for example, in the Live Focus mode, with approach or on wide angle, at the same time on all main cameras and to use AI to recommend the best of them.
