It was last October that Apple presented its latest smartphone, the iPhone 12. A range offering four models: the iPhone 12 Mini , the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max . Unfortunately, this release came with bad news for some consumers. Apple has announced the removal of the EarPods and charger from the box of smartphones . Only the Lightning cable is present. Communication side, the Cupertino company announced an ecological approach. But some point to savings on the backs of customers and forcing the purchase of AirPods, Apple's connected headphones.
If this decision has divided the community, Xiaomi has followed suit in the US with a similar decision for its future Mi 11 (but only the charger).
The Galaxy S21 follows in the footsteps of the iPhone 12
This is a photo that should be taken with a grain of salt, even if in the past, 9to5mac has repeatedly relayed rumors that are ultimately true. It seems that the Galaxy S21 does not come with headphones and charger, just like the iPhone 12 and the future Mi 11 from Xiaomi . In the case of Apple's smartphone, if the decision caused a lot of reaction, it now seems accepted by consumers. A situation which is reminiscent of the abandonment of the jack with the iPhone 7. First criticized, this decision is now adopted by a majority of phones in circulation.
But then what would we find in the box of the Galaxy S21? Samsung has reportedly decided to provide a USB-C cable, a small metal element to open the SIM card drawer and a user guide.
It is on January 14th that Samsung will present its Galaxy S21 , a new premium smartphone which may well mark the year 2021. Not to mention that the Korean manufacturer has foldable models in the boxes, in addition to a Galaxy Note 21 ( despite persistent rumors about a discontinuation of the range ).
It remains to be seen whether Samsung aficionados will receive this potential decision from the Korean manufacturer. Because on the Apple side, fans have not really complained on social networks about the abandonment of headphones and charger for the iPhone 12.
