In a Q&A about why it’s no longer including headphones and a charging brick in the box, Samsung says it believes steadily eradicating the equipment from its telephones might assist make them extra sustainable.

Possibly Samsung desires to maintain the charger round in cheaper phones so individuals who aren’t tech lovers could have a better chance of shopping for them, or possibly it doesn’t wish to upset the individuals who purchase its $2,000 phones. It might do each, both, or neither, and it might nonetheless rely as “steadily.”
The corporate doesn’t seem, nevertheless, to be following Apple’s route of pulling the plugs from its lineup of existing phones. The listings for the Notice 20 Extremely and Notice 10 nonetheless present a charger coming within the field.
