Samsung in Nepal is a familiar household brand. You can find at least a Samsung product in every household.
In the past Japanese electronic brands held the majority share in the market of Nepal, followed by Indian and Dutch brands. Three decades back, National, Philips, Sony, Panasonic, Onida, and T-Series were common names in the market.
Brief History of Samsung
The company name, Samsung, means “three stars” in Korea.
On March 1, 1938, Lee Byung-Chull started Samsung as a grocery trading store in Taegu, Korea. He traded noodles and other goods in and around the city while exporting them to different provinces in China.
After the Korean war ended in 1953, Lee expanded his grocery trading into textiles. He opened the largest woolen mill in Korea.
With speeding success, in the late 1950s, the company acquired three of Korea’s largest commercial banks and an insurance company.
Lee also acquired cement and fertilizer companies. Then, in the 1960s, Samsung acquired more insurance companies. Finally, they acquired an oil refinery, a nylon company, and a department store this time.
Samsung entered the electronics industry in 1969 with several electronics-focused divisions.
Today, Samsung is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of electronic devices. It manufactures a wide range of consumer and industrial electronics, including appliances, semiconductors, memory chips, digital media devices, and integrated systems.
Samsung eventually began exporting home electronics products to other countries in the 1970s.

2. Does Samsung offer insurance on smartphones?
Every Samsung mobile phone sold in Nepal comes with a one-year software warranty and a six-month battery warranty. Samsung also provides breakage insurance for high-end models, such as the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 9.
Unfortunately, there is no breakage insurance included with the Note 10 series. However, if you break the glass on the front or back of your phone, Samsung will replace it for a small fee.
3. How to claim a warranty on Samsung Products?
Undoubtedly, Samsung products purchased inside Nepal come with a warranty. Nevertheless, Samsung products purchased outside Nepal cannot be claimed for any warranty.
To claim a warranty, you need to provide a warranty card, VAT bill, and government ID proof with you when visiting a Samsung service center for repairs.
4. What are the prices of Samsung Mobile Phones?
The price of Samsung mobile phones varies based on the specifications. For example, Samsung Galaxy F22 and Samsung Galaxy M32 have exact screen sizes, but Samsung Galaxy M32 is better in hardware specifications than Samsung Galaxy F22. Hence the cost is higher for Samsung Galaxy M32.
In today’s market, the price of Samsung mobile Phones ranges from NPR 10,000 to 1 lakh and above. Therefore, we have compiled a list of mobile phones with the price range.

5. Which is the best Samsung Smartphone in Nepal?
There is no perfect answer to which Samsung Smartphone is the best in Nepal.
Every year Samsung releases a wide range of Smartphones. But, unfortunately, it becomes harder to choose between smartphones with every release of smartphones.
While buying a smartphone, the primary focus should be the usage of the phone. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra might be an acceptable deal for an avid gamer. On the contrary, a gaming smartphone does not suit a business person.
Similarly, you must consider your budget, the memory, and the chipset used in the phone, among other things.
6. How to buy genuine Samsung smartphone accessories?
To buy genuine Samsung smartphone accessories, you need to visit authorized shops.
Even though you can find several shops selling Samsung products, chances are they are not genuine. Furthermore, even if the shop owners claim the smartphone accessories to be authentic, there are chances that they do not provide after-sales support, just like authorized shops do.
Integrated Mobility Solution Pvt. Ltd. (IMS) and HIM Electronics are the official distributors for Samsung Mobile Phones. Similarly, Samsung Plaza also retails Samsung Phones and other Samsung appliances and accessories.
You can go to the stores of these companies for your need.
