In fact, in Germany prices move between 30 and 120 euros, although for now this type of rental It has been enabled only for Samsung Galaxy S20 family mobiles, with no possibility for now to access folding devices or the Galaxy Note20. Asked about it, the South Korean firm has stated in any case that more devices to be added soon available in this mode.

The acquisition would be made from the official Samsung store, although once the rental has been chosen as a method of payment, users will be redirected to the Grover website where you can decide the rental period between 1, 3, 6 or 12 months.

Obviously, as in all these types of subscriptions, prices will vary in each case depending on the time chosen, so we go on to detail them so that you can assess yourself with all the details:

Samsung claims to be working on it.

As we mentioned, not available outside of Germany since it is an idea of ​​the Teutonic division of Samsung, although We hope that it can reach our markets sooner or later to further open the range of possibilities, bringing the best quality devices to more users.

Not in vain, this monthly payment method not only it will allow us to save, but will also make it possible change the mobile at the exit of the next flagship without large outlays ... Good idea, huh?
