With the iPhone 12 series, Apple has taken one step further in the fight against pollution. This has resulted in mixed reactions from consumers and competitors, including Samsung. However, unnamed industry sources cited by Korean media now confirmed that Samsung is considering excluding chargers and headphones that come with standard retail boxes.
At the very least, it looks like the 5G-enabled Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra will almost certainly ship without headphones in the home of Samsung and the US. Of course, things need to wait a while to know if the Galaxy S21 series will do this, and that will be revealed in January 2021 when this product line is expected to launch.
If Samsung continues in Apple’s direction, the company could extend its policy of removing the aforementioned accessory from the Galaxy Note20 case, at least in some markets like the US. That can make users feel down and unfamiliar if not grasp the company’s policy.
If you have been interested in the iPhone 12 line, many people will understand that Apple’s goal when removing the charger and headphones from the box of new products is for the environment. However, in the short term, many people are witnessing the explosion of wireless headphones, which are accessories that will benefit greatly from being removed from the iPhone case.
Therefore, many people still believe that, as Samsung has increasingly expressed its desire to increase profits more in recent years, while increasing its presence and competitiveness in the thriving wireless earphone field, the removal of the aforementioned may not be solely for the environment, as called by Apple.
