Samsung Galaxy S21 may follow in the footsteps of Apple iPhone 12 series and come without an in-box charger and headphones, according to a report. The new move by the South Korean company would not just help reduce environmental impact but also provide a way to increase its revenue margins as it is said to have no plans to revise the pricing of the Galaxy S21 models even in case its charger and headphones are absent from the retail box.
Citing South Korean media, SamMobile reports that Samsung is considering ditching both in-box charger as well as the bundled headphones from the retail box of the Galaxy S21. The change could not only be limited to the regular Galaxy S21 model and might be a part of the Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra as well.
The report also mentions that there are speculations that Samsung could at least remove the bundled headphones from the Galaxy S21 and ship the next-generation flagship phone only with a charger.
