This isn’t the first time that we are hearing about Samsung’s plan to remove the charge from the box for the Galaxy S21. Previously, a certification listing in Brazil also confirmed that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 series will come without a charger and headphones in the box.
Interestingly, Samsung mocked Apple for launching the iPhone 12 without a charger in the box. Some reports now suggest that the South Korean smartphone manufacturer has deleted that post from their Facebook account. Looks like Samsung is doing exactly what Xiaomi did. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer also trolled Apple for remove the charger from iPhone 12’s retail box but later launched the Mi 11 without a charger in the box. Xiaomi provides an option for consumers to get the charger for free.
Some reports also suggest that the upcoming Galaxy S21 series including the Galaxy S21, S21 Ultra and S21+ will not include a headset inside the box.
What about the India launch?
Samsung usually launches its Galaxy S series in India a week or two after the global launch. This means we can expect the S21 series to hit the Indian market by the end of January 2021 or early February. The S21 series is said to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor but for India the company should use it’s in-house Exynos processor. Meanwhile, pre-registrations for the Samsung Galaxy S21 series have already begun in the United States.
