Following Apple the South Korean tech brand is considering to exclude from picking a new smartphone charger.
As reported by Korean portal ETNews, citing sources, Samsung explains the new idea that users already have power adapters from previous devices, so that a waiver can significantly reduce production costs.
Charging may disappear from boxes with smartphones already in 2021 – the company is considering this possibility for some models and negotiating with suppliers. So Samsung hopes to reduce costs, rising due to the high cost of 5G-components and to reduce the impact on the environment.
If Samsung will make a final decision, it will become the second major company to abandon the bundled power adapters. The first one is Apple, which in 2020 will cease wrapping iPhone headphones and charger. The Cupertino-based company will offer users to buy adapters separately from your smartphone.
