Redmi Note 11SE is the company’s next smartphone to arrive in the popular Note 11 series, which already has a convoluted mix of phones. The launch is set for August 26, which is tomorrow, and ahead of that, Redmi has revealed all the specifications, including the box contents. In what may come as a surprise to you, the box will not include a power adapter aka the charger. Also Read - Redmi Note 11SE goes on sale in India: Check price, specs, offers
While a phone without its charger in the box is not news, but it may be a little offputting for Redmi fans. Redmi has so far stayed away from the club of brands that have ditched the in-box charger for either all or some of their phones. But with Redmi Note 11SE, the company may finally resort to the tradeoff. The “package contents” for the Redmi Note 11SE will include only the USB-C cable.

Who started it?
Apple became the first company to ditch the in-box power adapter, citing it will reduce electronic waste and help the environment. It said that most people today already have at least a power adapter lying around in their homes, so not shipping a new one would not hamper the user experience. Its rivals, such as Samsung, criticised the move initially but gave in later. Samsung, along with several other brands, do not include a charger in the phone retail box, citing the same reasons as Apple did. But while the charger went away, the price remained unaffected.
