Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S21 lineup at the Unpacked Event, which showed us the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and the powerhouse S21 Ultra. As expected, none of the devices come with Chargers in the box, and the company has also mentioned in a set of FAQs that they will be sticking to this decision for their future Galaxy Phones.
While Samsung has followed Apple’s footsteps, it will continue to ship a charger with its existing Galaxy phones. This move will help in making them a sustainable company and joining hands to save the environment.
We discovered that more and more Galaxy users are reusing accessories they already have and making sustainable choices in their daily lives to promote better recycling habits. To support our Galaxy community in this journey, we are transitioning to removal of the charger plug and earphones in our latest line of Galaxy smartphones.
The company focuses on the fact that they have stuck to USB-C for the last couple of years so that the old chargers can charge the newer devices. It is still unclear if this decision will be only for the S lineups or will also affect the A, M, and F series devices that target the budget buyers. The smartphone giant has a good value in the market, with devices starting from a Lower Budget to Top-Tier flagships and Folding Phones. So, there remains a chance that the company might continue providing charges to cheaper handsets, so the customers will not have to pay extra.
As noted by the folks over at The Verge, the listings for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Note 10 on the company’s website show they still include a charger in the box. This shows that they are sticking to their words of shipping Chargers with their existing lineup but will gradually get rid of it with their future devices.
