They have released many flagships that offer great features. Each of them claims that their products are what consumers need.
However, there are certain instances that one of them has the upper hand against the other. Some consumers are not happy that the latest iPhone doesn’t include a basic charger.
It announce the information when it unveiled the iPhone 12. Samsung saw this as an opportunity to endorse its own arsenal.
Apple’s biggest competitor released a Facebook post. It emphasized that its smartphones would come with chargers.
Although Apple may seem to be very advanced since it is using wireless chargers. However, some people can’t keep up with this lifestyle.
They are still asking for the basic charger that can use normally everyday. Samsung took advantage of it and seemingly mocked the tech giant manufacturer.
Here is Samsung’s statement.
“Your Galaxy does give you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger to the best camera, battery, performance, memory, and even 120Hz screen on a smartphone.”
The Facebook post was published on October 13 this year of 2020. It even posted a picture of its basic charger.
However, Samsung mysteriously decided to delete its post. Rumors state that it is not because Apple might file a case against its competitor.
Samsung might have deleted it because the statement contradicts its future plans. The giant manufacturer confirmed that it is planning to unbundle its basic chargers.
Rumors also claimed that Samsung plans to stop providing chargers with its phones that were released back in October.
Samsung Galaxy S21 will come without a basic charger?
Although Samsung mocks Apple, it seems like the tech giant manufacturer wants to follow its competitor’s strategy.
The company’s latest Galaxy S21 is expected to launch in a few weeks. Many fans of the upcoming product are very excited.
However, it seems like Samsung would let them down. Why? Because the new phone might have no charger or headphones included in the bundle.
The iPhone 12 series is the first model to ship without a charger or earphones. This is Apple’s strategy to reduce environmental impact.
New evidence also confirmed that Samsung will most like to follow its competitor’s move. The upcoming change is expected to happen in its new Galaxy lineup.
Brazil’s Anatel’s (Agência Nacional De Telecomunicações) clearance confirmed what will happen. The clearance states that the upcoming Galaxy S21 trio will be sold without a charger and earphones.
This is not the first time that Samsung was allegedly cutting down on its box contents. Although this is the case, it is still unclear if the company’s Type-C cable will make the cut.
Right now, there’s a high chance that other phone manufacturers will also remove basic chargers.
Once they also decided to do it, many consumers will probably be disappointed. But, these manufacturers might also find a better alternative for basic chargers soon.
