IPhone 12: Samsung withdraws its mocking Facebook post on the lack of charger in the box

Samsung seems to be quietly removing its few mockeries about the iPhone 12 and the lack of a charger in the box. A significant removal since we expect the manufacturer to do the same soon with the release of the Galaxy S21.

A few manufacturers have tried it before quickly stopping. When launching the iPhone 12, Apple explained at length its decision to remove the charger and headphones from the box of its smartphones. Xiaomi was one of the first to be ironic about Apple’s decision to better recall in a post than the Xiaomi Mi 10T.

However the reception of this joke quickly turned out to be mixed, with many negative reactions accusing the builder of making fun of the environment. This did not prevent Samsung from trolling the absence of a charger in the box of the iPhone 12 in turn just a few days later.

Samsung seems to confirm the removal of the charger from the Galaxy S21 box

In the tweet, accompanied by a photo of a charger, it read: “Your #Galaxy gives you everything you expect. From the most basic, like the charger, to the best photo sensors, better battery, performance, memory and even a 120 Hz screen in a smartphone ”.

As you probably know, it seems that Samsung very quickly changed its mind, to the point that the Galaxy S21 is now expected to be launched without a charger or headphones in the box. Of course, the info is not yet confirmed. But there is one sign that does not deceive: the brand’s community managers are obviously cleaning up their posts on the subject.

As noted by several sites, Samsung has removed one of the last posts on the subject from its international Facebook page. It seems, then, that Samsung is selling the wick without saying it already: don’t expect the charger and headphones to be included in the S21’s box. It will still be possible to use the charger of your current smartphone, or to buy a new one separately if necessary.

Apple explained in particular that this removal of accessories allows the firm tosave more than 2 million cubic meters of carbon emissions equivalent, i.e. a trifle of 10% of the firm’s annual carbon emissions. Not to mention the gains on the logistics part since boxes are much more possible which facilitates mass transport in trucks.

Arguments, it seems, convincing, especially when we note that the sales of iPhone 12 this year break records after records.
