Samsung is now pretending to never make fun of Apple over selling new iPhones without a charger

Samsung, which was fast dug up Apple to remove chargers from the iPhone case, now reportedly plans to do the same. Starting from The Galaxy S21, a South Korean giant, also expects to sell its flagship phones without a power adapter. In preparation for that, the company is now removing posts on social networks that mocked Apple for selling smartphones without filling bricks.

The Verge reports that Facebook posts in which Samsung boasted that its phones still come with the “most basic” accessories are nowhere to be found. Samsung had previously made fun of Apple for removing the 3.5mm headphone jack, only to do the same later. And, as you might have guessed, so was the company downloaded all the ads that Apple had fun about removing the audio port.

The difference between now and then is that Samsung stuck to the audio port for three years after Apple left it. The company also had a semi-convincing excuse at the time: the slightly larger Note 10 battery and improved haptic feedback left no room for a 3.5mm jack.

This time, the same rationale is expected to be used as Apple: chargers contribute to electronic waste and are harmful to the environment.

It could be that the design and production team planned to copy Apple all the time, and the marketing department just wasn’t up to date. Anyway, now we know who will be the last to laugh.

It seems to be Huawei too they plan to do so in the future, and other manufacturers are likely to follow suit.
If for any consolation, Samsung reportedly plans to launch A 30 W charger that will cost less than 25 W of brick. The new phones will seemingly ship with a USB-C to USB-C cable, meaning your charger will work with the Galaxy S21 from last year.
