Samsung may be planning on a controversial move with its smartphones for the next year. A report claims that the company probably won’t pack chargers with new smartphones, as a means to lessen cost. The report stated that details about this plan are not clear or affirmed right now, yet industry sources have told the publication that Samsung was discussing this strategy. In the event that this comes to realization, Samsung may have the option to value its phones all the more aggressively.
According to the report by South Korean publication ETNews, Samsung is planning to not include a wall charger in the retail packaging of its smartphones from next year.
It is accepted that the company is doing this to eliminate the ever-increasing expenses of smartphones. Enabling 5G support in smartphones was also refered to as a reason for this, according to the report.
Another reason for this could be that each family unit accumulates chargers, be it USB Type-C or Type-An and removing chargers from new phones may not be such a serious deal. Be that as it may, since there is no confirmation from Samsung on this, all the reasons are simply speculation.
Considering if this happens next year, Samsung telephone costs may come down yet by what amount, cannot be said at this point. Notwithstanding, the report notes that chargers are not particularly costly segments, which means the decrease in pricing may not be significant.
To recall, it was as of late detailed that Apple also plans to bar the charger from its upcoming iPhone 12 retail box, as well as the wired headphones. In this manner, if the big cheeses of the smartphone industry actually proceed with this move, other manufacturers are will undoubtedly follow.
In other news, Samsung has affirmed that its Unpacked 2020 occasion will take place on August 5 where it is relied upon to disclose the Galaxy Note 20 arrangement, the Galaxy Fold 2, and the 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
