The Galaxy S21 (S30) will skip the mains charger included in the box, confirms a famous informant. In the process, the leak confirms the launch date of smartphones. Samsung should present its new generation of flagships on January 14, 2021.
In partnership with MySmartPrice, Ishan Agarwal, a famous Indian leaker, posted several key information about the upcoming Galaxy S21 (S30) on his Twitter account. First, it reveals the date of presentation of the smartphones: Thursday, January 14, 2021. As expected, Samsung has decided to rush the launch of the range for several weeks in order to boost the sluggish sales of its mobile division.
According to Ishan Agarwal, the conference will start at 4 p.m. (French time) and will be broadcast on the official Samsung website. Obviously, the Unpacked presentation will also be broadcast live on YouTube. Pandemic requires, the South Korean firm should be satisfied with a virtual presentation. The young man accompanies his tweet with the GIF which will be included in the invitations that will be sent to the press (see below).
No charger in the S21 box, just a USB-C cable
In a separate tweet, Ishan Agarwal confirms the absence of a mains charger and wired headphones in the box of Galaxy S21 (S30) sold on the UK market. Mirroring its rival Apple, Samsung will be content to include a USB-C charging cable. The mains unit will have to be purchased separately. To pass the pill, Samsung is offering a $ 50 voucher to people who book a Galaxy S21 in the United States.
The Seoul giant is obviously expected to apply this same logic to most markets. In France, legislation should nevertheless force Samsung to provide a pair of wireless headphones in the box. That same law forced Apple to slip a pair of EarPods (wired headphones) into the iPhone 12 box.
This decision is all the more comical as Samsung recently laughed at the absence of a mains charger in the iPhone 12 box. Caught in the act of short memory, the firm preferred to discreetly delete the publications that paid for the head of its competitor.
