It was already been rumoured that Samsung was thinking about shipping the upcoming Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra without a charger or earphones in the box, and now it has been made official.
The trio of devices has been certified for sale in Brazil by Anatel, the country’s regulatory agency, and there is an explicit notice saying the phones will not be marketed with a charger or headphones.
Apple seems to have started yet another trend in the mobile industry. It is possible that Samsung, like Apple, will try to sell this as something related to reducing environmental waste. The mobile industry sure is going through another shake-up of a unique kind.
Anatel tested the S21 phones with two different chargers, both 25W, which may signify that that is the maximum supported capacity. Samsung will sell consumers of those separately, as it will the Galaxy Buds Pro true wireless earbuds, which are expected to debut alongside the S21 family at the same event in mid-January.
