Rumors and leaks have indicated that Samsung plans to follow in Apple’s steps and remove the charger from the box of the new Galaxy S21, which will be announced on Thursday. Reliable leak Evan Blass today shared photos of the official Galaxy S21 website, which confirms that Samsung’s new smartphones come without an power adapter in the box.
Blass, who also leaked the entire iPhone 12 series before the Apple event, has tweeted pictures of what he claims to be the official website of the Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. Besides having a new design, 5G support and other improvements, the new phones from the South Korean company will not have a charger in the box ̵
In a section of the website called “What’s in the box”, Samsung says that the new smartphones come with “exactly what you need” – a USB-C cable, the SIM eject tool and a start guide. Samsung also claims that the decision was made to help the environment, which is the same as Apple has said since the company removed the power adapter from the Apple Watch box last year.
Galaxy S21 5G comes with just what you need – USB Type-C data and charging cable, exhaust pin and quick start guide. Just another way to be good to the environment.
This is of course somewhat at odds with what Samsung did when Apple announced the iPhone 12 line. The company made jokes on social media after Apple removed the charger from the iPhone box, emphasizing that Galaxy smartphones still come with an included power adapter. These posts were later deleted when rumors of the Galaxy S21 surfaced online.
In a related note, Samsung invited its Twitter followers today to watch the Samsung Unpacked event this Thursday, but tweets were shared with “Twitter for iPhone.” The company later deleted tweets, but it was too late.
