Samsung to follow Apple with Galaxy leasing program

Samsung logoSamsung is expected to launch its own smartphone leasing plan, following the recent lead of Apple.

Samsung has not confirmed the plans, but the company "evaluates trends and assesses business growth opportunities." Forbes reported Sunday that Samsung may be launching its leasing program for Galaxy devices within the next several months in the U.S., quoting an unnamed industry official.

Apple's iPhone Upgrade Program lets a U.S. customer select an unlocked iPhone at an Apple retail store after making an appointment.

The Apple customer chooses a wireless carrier and then pays for the device over 24 months, with the ability to upgrade to the newest iPhone after the first year. Monthly prices start at $32.41 for an iPhone 6S with 16GB. The phone is also covered by the AppleCare+ aftermarket warranty.

Major U.S. carriers have mostly been quiet about the Apple's leasing plan.
