IT watchdog Ivan Chernousov learned that official Samsung stores in Russia sell equipment imported from Armenia and Kazakhstan.
Both countries are members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which allows them to obtain the appropriate certificates and distribute the warranty in their respective regions.
But there is also other interesting information. According to some reports, Samsung’s Armenia office is working directly with retailers in Russia to provide them with the right devices with favorable warranty terms.
At the same time, the company’s Russian office does not seem to be directly involved in this process.
All this means that if you are going to buy a new gadget from Samsung, you should pay attention to the type of warranty. If the device specifies that it has an official warranty, such a device will be accepted without any problems at any authorized service center.
