Samsung Will Reportedly Follow Apple & Remove Chargers From Boxes

Apart from Apple, Samsung will reportedly be the next manufacturer that ditches the charger inside the box of its new smartphones.

Offering a charger inside the box has long been an indispensable "standard" for smartphones. However, manufacturers seem to be trying to change this by cutting back on most accessories that come with their devices.

Samsung Remove Charger Apple
Will you be happy if Samsung does not offer a charger inside its smartphones' boxes?

You might already know that Apple is planning to remove both Earpods and chargers from the upcoming iPhone 12's boxes. However, it seems like Apple will not be the only smartphone manufacturer doing so. According to the latest report from South Korea, Samsung will also not bundle chargers inside the box of its upcoming smartphones. That means, if you want to charge your phone, you have to buy additional chargers from Samsung or third-party manufacturers.

Currently, Samsung is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, with hundreds of millions of phones sold each year. So, if you don't include the charger inside the box, the company will cut manufacturing and packaging costs.

On the other hand, this might also help Samsung to bring users new smartphones with powerful configuration and more advanced features, but still keep the price at the same or slightly different from the previous generations.

According to the report, Samsung will apply this change on certain smartphone models. And unfortunately, the company will start the plan from next year, which is only nearly 6 months away. Unlike headsets - also included in the box, the charger is a very necessary accessory for smartphone users.

Not just that, Samsung's decision might also heavily impact the charger market mostly in a bad way. Shipping around half a billion chargers inside phone boxes is not a small matter and losing such a lucrative customer like Samsung could make the suppliers go bankrupt. However, they can take this opportunity because this decision from Samsung will create a massive boost in the market for third-party chargers.
