Samsung will reportedly remove the charger or power adapter from the box of the upcoming flagship Galaxy S21 series smartphones. While the company has not explicitly confined this, as Xiaomi did, but the removal of social media posts mocking Apple for doing the same hints towards that direction.
Now, leaker Ishan Agarwal has claimed that the next-generation Galaxy S-series flagship smartphones will come without a charger in the retail box, at least in the United Kingdom. The tweet has now been deleted but below is the screenshot of the same (via GSMArena).
However, we expect the company to exclude a charger from the Galaxy S21 series’ retail box in almost every region. Recently, a certification list of the upcoming lineup in Brazil confirmed the exclusion of chargers and earphones.
But it’s not just following Apple‘s footsteps. Samsung has been working towards this move since the launch of the Galaxy Note20 lineup in which the company excluded the earphones from the box in the United States. The South Korean giant shipped out the earphones
So, there’s still a possibility of Samsung doing the same for the charger and earphones in the upcoming Galaxy S21 series. So far, it remains to be seen if the company decides to remove the bundled accessories in all three models — S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra.
However, to know for sure what the company has planned, we will have to wait for the official launch event that is expected to take place on 14th January. Meanwhile, Samsung company has set an event in the first week of January where it will showcase its new display technology.
