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.
Samsung has now deleted this post on Facebook
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.
