If you’ve already started saving money to buy the new Samsung Galaxy S21 next year, you might want to know what was included in the box other than the phone at the time of purchase – and now it looks like it won’t come with a charger or headphones. for future Galaxy models.
Sources who have spoken to South Korean website ChosunBiz claim that Samsung at least takes this into account and above all headphones that risk disappearing more than just charging blocks. Charging cable may still be included.
This doesn’t come out of nowhere – rumors that Samsung will be releasing accessories have been around since July – but it’s still a rather odd development considering that Samsung has mocked Apple on social media for selling chargers and headphones. separately for iPhone 12.
Shipping these additional hardware products not only saves money, it reduces e-waste significantly – Apple believes that most users already have charging pads and headphones and if they don’t, they can be purchased from Apple.
Nothing has been decided yet
All the steps taken to reduce electronic waste are to be commended and perhaps it is for this very reason that Samsung swallows its pride and does exactly the same thing that Apple is doing for its upcoming flagship product – although it seems the final decision is not yet. done.
“Consumers already own more than 700 million Lightning headphones,” said Lisa Jackson, Apple’s VP of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, at the launch of iPhone 12. “There are also more than two billion Apple power adapters worldwide.”
“We will remove this accessory for iPhone packaging, which reduces carbon emissions and means we don’t have to use a lot of precious materials.”
The Galaxy S21 is expected to arrive in January next year, a little earlier than usual. And it looks like we can also see a pretty big update in terms of the camera module design on the phone.
