It should be remembered that very recently it was announced that the new iPhone 12 would come without a charger or headphones and Apple users put “the cry in the sky” to look for other alternatives.
The company immediately on its official website claimed that this measure seeks to reduce electronic waste . So also LG decided and now it seems that Huawei also wants to remove its charger in the box .
The measure – which is not yet resolved – is because the Chinese company launched a survey on one of its next products that will hit the market and asked its users what they thought about whether or not the charger is included in the box.
The survey specifically was based on the launch of a new Huawei headset and, to be more specific in the survey, users were asked whether or not they think the product requires a Type-C cable in the box.
One of the more direct questions that would indicate that Huawei plans to follow in Apple’s footsteps in the future was: “Would your purchase decision be affected by the lack of this item?”
The controversy of cell phones without chargers
When the launch of the 4 iPhone models without charger or headphones in their boxes was officially presented, it was not only a great surprise for fans of the brand but also a great controversy.
Regardless of the well-founded arguments by the company, the Samsung and Xiaomi brands joined the marketing war. From the official Samsung account they published a tweet benefiting from this decision by Apple:
“ Your Galaxy gives you what you are looking for. From a charger, to the best camera, battery, performance, memory and even a 120Hz screen on a smartphone ”.
From Xiaomi, they did not wait long to publish something similar on their social networks and from their official account in Spain, they also published a tweet that said: “Good morning MiFans, today we have dreamed that our smartphones came without a charger in the box. Fortunately, it was just a nightmare. ”
On the other hand, Xiaomi Global also published a quick unboxing with a video of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro model where the first thing that can be seen when opening the box is the charger with a tweet that said: “Don’t worry, we don’t leave anything out of the box with the Mi 10T Pro ”.
The problem is that both brands can at some point also eliminate the charger on their phones. And this information is already known because at least Samsung seems to be contemplating it.
What is the brand that no longer includes a charger?
Apple always sets trends and more than once other companies are not ashamed to follow suit. This is the case of the LG company that decided to remove the charger from the package of the LG G8X ThinQ model for the Indian market.
This decision was made to deliver it during these Christmas sales on Flipkart and the goal is to start lowering the price of this type of smartphone. The truth is that the savings for users who buy it without cable are doubtful, since they will have to buy a charger if they do not have a compatible one.
