Samsung to Stop Including Chargers with Smartphones Releases

Samsung could go iPhone 12 route, ditch charger with next year's flagship

Apple iPhone 12 5G models to feature OLED displays

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the recently-launched iPhone SE would also lose the power adapter it is now being shipped with later this year, Kuo said. Moreover, they'll save even more by using smaller packaging as the phones' boxes will no longer have to be as large as they now are to include chargers. There has been an increase in the cost of smartphones, which is why it can be said that this is done as a means to reduce the cost. While nothing seems to have been finalized yet, the report suggests Samsung may not include a charger in the box with some of its 2021 smartphones.

Samsung will no longer give customers a complimentary charging brick when they buy a new phone beginning next year, according to Korea's ETNews.

Rumors promises that Apple will start the typical Iphone 12 in two sizes this calendar year, with 5.4 and 6.1 inches, while the Iphone 12 Professional will be provided in 6.1 and 6.7 inches. Since then, other products and accessories made by Apple and its competitors have come with a lone USB-C or Lightning cable, but no power adapter. Along with the Galaxy Note 20 series, the company is also expected to launch the Galaxy Fold 2 and the 5G variant of its Galaxy Z Flip smartphone. This is primarily because most of the consumers already have the chargers and can re-use them. Instead, a new and faster 20W charger will be able to be bought separately.
