By now you are sure you know that the new Galaxy S21s do not include a charger in the box. They also do not include the popular Samsung headphones that we did see in other models such as the Galaxy S20. Now Samsung solves one of the doubts that many users had about this decision. Yes the company will extend this same strategy to other devices. This follows Apple’s strategy, albeit in a less abusive way. The reality is that next Samsung mobile what you buy, regardless of what it is, could arrive without charger.
Samsung will continue to sell phones without a charger and headphones
It has been the company itself that has confirmed the strategy, although in a rather ambiguous way. Samsung has indicated that are committed to the environment and that they will be equally committed to other Galaxy devices. What are Galaxy devices?
If we take a look at their catalog we realize that all smartphones are Galaxy, so the charger could begin to disappear from the boxes of all mobiles by Samsung slowly. The company has not specified if it will only remove this accessory from the high-end or also from the rest.
It does not make much sense to justify the decision by appealing to the environment and leave chargers in the mid-range, the best-selling series of Samsung devices in the world. Samsung is on the tightrope for millions of people around the world for this decision and it will be important to keep an eye on their next launches for the mid-range and low-range.
The decision looks like Apple, but it is not the same
Apple now also doesn’t include a charger or headphones when you buy an iPhone. Of course, the company’s decision was much more aggressive: they removed the charger from their entire catalog, including devices that have been on the market for years. They renewed the boxes of all the terminals, something that Samsung probably won’t.
When Apple announced this measure with the iPhone 12, it updated its website to show that all its devices would arrive, from that moment, without a charger. Samsung has done no such thing and on its website we can see that the Galaxy S20 and other devices continue to be sold with a charger and headphones included.
In summary, Samsung has followed Apple’s strategy somewhat less aggressively. We will be very attentive to upcoming releases from the Korean company to find out if this decision of the charger also reaches the mid-range.
