Samsung To Follow Apple By Not Including Chargers In Box

RAMROD
Posted (edited)

Samsung may not include chargers in the boxes of some of its smartphones starting in 2021, according to a report from Korean news site ETNews. The company is taking them out because many people already have chargers and to help reduce costs, the report says.

While not including a charger in the box might seem like a big move, Samsung reportedly isn’t the only major phone maker considering it. Apple may do something similar by not including a charger with this year’s iPhone lineup, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple may also phase out the 5W and 18W chargers that currently come with iPhones (depending on which model you buy) and instead offer a new 20W fast charger that will be sold separately, said Kuo.

Removing chargers from phone boxes could be a major way for Samsung and Apple to lower the costs of selling their phones and make their phone packaging smaller, but it could also have a significant impact on the environment. Taking them out of some of the top-selling smartphones could help reduce the number of chargers that go unused and are thrown away because people already have a bunch more scattered around their house.

See, I knew it.

Once Huawei is adopting it too, it's over for you, fam. Cos every other Chinese phones will adopting it too.

Also, y'all who wishes or thinking to get that 2020 iPhone SE, and have no more budget for upcoming 12 line up, then you better get it now, cos after iPhone 12 released, it will also not including chargers in their box anymore.

This is so weird. But I guess it kind of makes sense because most people do have chargers by now. But still

I'm okay with this if they allow me to purchase the better 45W charger at launch. 

At the end of the day I already have a million chargers.

Keep in mind that a lot of companies and phones have adopted wireless charging so you could just buy the wireless charger

Lmao the phone contains most of the non recyclable materials (or at least very expensive to recycle).

So in terms of environmental issues we are staying still, but for the economy they can show the same prices but without chargers. And later the charger would be a product on its own "The iCharger X Plus" :huntyga:

Actually, the rumours has it that iPhone 12 will have a price hike :billie:

And I believe so does every other flagship phones.

Well in effect of this removal, the box will be thinner. So we got that  going for us :billie:

Flagship phones will be expensive. Most of the people will have to use the cheaper ones. With Samsung phones, it's like Galaxy Series A and Series M, while the flagship, Series S and the Note will only be used by small numbers of people.
