Samsung Galaxy Note 3 close-up

Samsung already has extended warranties, but you'd be forgiven if you didn't notice them -- they're not exactly well-advertised. That may soon change, as the company has quietly filed for a catchier "Samsung Protection Plus" trademark in the US. There's little to reveal what would come with Protection Plus, although the trademark mentions coverage for both electronics and appliances; this wouldn't just be for a new washing machine. We don't know if or when the service will become reality, but don't be surprised if you can soon get an advanced warranty for a Galaxy Note 3 without resorting to the carrier or an insurance firm.
