Samsung may not include charger in the box for some smartphones

Along with the cashback offer, the South Korean mobile company has also announced a one-time accidental damage protection service for one-year with SamsungGalaxy Z Flip for all customers. Numerous companies stopped giving earphones in the box in order to reduce the cost and increase the profit.
What this means is that consumers who buy the iPhone 12 will not find the charger or headphones in the box, so they will have to continue to use the ones from their previous iPhone or buy new ones, either from the official Apple store or from third party brands.
According to rumors, Apple is planning to reduce the delivery of the new iPhonein the box which shoppers will find only the standard documentation and the Lightning cable.
Samsung is looking to follow Apple's footsteps and may soon remove the charging adapter from its retail box in 2021.
According to 9to5mac, removing these in-box accessories will not only allow Apple to sell the device for less but it could also reduce the size of the iPhone packaging considerably, helping lower Apple's freight costs and ultimately be better for the environment.
Samsung's thinking on this is focused on both the waste aspect of including a charger and the cost of phones.
Samsung is all set to unveil its flagship Galaxy Note 20 series of smartphones on August 5th, during the online Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event. Will they be annoyed at having to spend more to get a charger?
Apple is envisioned to introduce four new Apple iphone types afterwards this 12 months, with two products staying portion of the Appleiphone 12 lineup and the other two of the Appleiphone 12 Pro lineup. Instead, a new and faster 20W charger will be able to be bought separately.
