Smartphone makers are considering ditching phone chargers and headphones

Smartphone makers are considering ditching phone chargers and headphones

When Apple decided to abandon its chargers for environmental reasons, it received various reactions ranging from positive to negative reviews. Even its competitors, like Samsung, did not let it pass.

The South Korean tech company acquired the new iPhone12 from Apple upon its release this year, saying that unlike the latter’s new smartphone model, its model comes with a charger. As expected, many were enjoying this trolling by Samsung, although Apple has not commented on the matter.

Samsung and other Apple competitors have long been known to mock or troll Apple every time it releases its flagship new phones or gadgets. But then, after a few months, they also began to follow in the footsteps of the American tech giant. Samsung appears to be heading in that direction again as reports claim that they are considering ditching chargers and earphones in their next smartphones.

Would others do the same?

According to the Mashable report, Brazilian Technoblog noted that ANATEL, the regulatory agency, has approved Samsung’s new Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra models, which it reveals will come out without any charger or earphones in packaging like the Apple iPhone12.

The report says Samsung is considering ditching the charger again in July, but this new development of reports gives more evidence of the next step the Korean tech giant is taking.

Despite this, there is no confirmation yet from Samsung, and they are still likely to release their phones with chargers as they are planning to do in Brazil. The Latin American country is forcing smartphone manufacturers to charge a charger with the phone, which makes Samsung follow their regulations regardless of their initial plans.

But if Samsung decides to follow the iPhone12’s example of not including its charger and earphones in its packaging, Samsung’s tradition of mocking Apple for doing something innovative will actually happen.

Copying features or lack thereof

Speaking of history, Samsung has always acquired Apple for its new smart features, and it ends up being copied. Like last year when they released the Note 10 that doesn’t come with a headphone jack. Apple has already done so, which has also received mixed reactions from its competitors and the public.

In 2017, they released an ad titled “Growing Up” to a user frustrated by the increasing restrictions of their iPhone, so they ended up purchasing a Samsung smartphone. At the time, Samsung was trolling the iPhone, but it also followed its lead a few years later.

It appears that this will be repeated due to some leaked reports of the South Korean tech giant’s plan not to include chargers in the upcoming Galaxy S21 series.
