South Korean company Samsung is considering not including the charger in the box of some of its phones that it will launch next year, after an analyst at Manzana affirmed that the company would not include it in the boxes of the next iPhone 12. A fashion that, it seems, is here to stay.
So far, the company has not confirmed that it will stop including chargers, but several industry officials said Samsung “is discussing how to remove the charger of the components of the smartphone, “as reported by the ETNews portal.
The reason you would exclude chargers from the boxes of your next mobile phones would be for reduce costs and offset the ever-increasing price of devices due to support for fifth-generation (5G) data networks.
In other words, manufacturers could reduce the cost of each unit produced and streamline shipments of their products; while they could also maintain schemes of prices of previous series, offering improvements in the devices without great increases.
On the other hand, the lack of the charger in the box of the new cell phones represents good news in ecological terms.
In this sense, it should be noted that the mobile business is not exactly new and that, with millions of smartphones in the world, most people already have a charger at home. This would avoid accumulations and increases in the volumes of electronic waste.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo assured in late June that the Manzanita company will not include the charger in the box of the next iPhone 12, something that would be focused on environmental care or also to reduce manufacturing costs.
The iPhone 12 would not have a charger in its box.
According to a statement from the analyst, the company will launch as an optional accessory for the iPhone a new 20W power adapter and later this year it will stop producing 5 and 18W power adapters.
Kuo also believes that Apple will stop including 5W power adapters with the second generation iPhone SE later this year, although it will continue to include a 12W power adapter with iPad, 10.2-inch iPad Air and iPad mini. .
