One you have finished the pre-booking process, Samsung or its authorised third party will update you with info regarding the balance amount pending, and by when it should be paid to get the smartphone. If you fail to deposit the pending amount before the due date, your pre-booking amount will be refunded into your bank account before 7 working days.
