I've recently bought a Galaxy s9 which should have 2 years of warranty. When checking with the "live chat" that Samsung offers, they told me that the warranty expires on 30.6.2020 which is less than a year from now. Does this mean that someone has registered this phone online before?
@S9_disappoints: If you used the serial number and IMEI number to check the warranty via Samsung Live Chat then the warranty period provided would have been based on the manufacture date. If the device was purchased brand new from a reputable retailer and you have valid proof of purchase then this can be used to represent the 'actual' start date of the warranty.
