News Highlights: Samsung’s Galaxy S21 phones won’t have a charger in the box.
As expected, Samsung’s new Galaxy S21 phones don’t come with a power adapter in the box. Each phone comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable, but you will need to bring your own charger. Samsung is dropping the price of its 25W power adapter to $ 20, instead of $ 35, to make up for this. It’s also worth bearing in mind that the company’s flagship starts at $ 800 this year, as opposed to the $ 1,000 you had to pay to buy the Galaxy S20 last year.
The move clearly follows a similar one from Apple. Last year, the company stopped including a power adapter with its new Apple Watch and iPhone 12 devices. And like Apple, Samsung cited a concern for the environment as a reason not to include a power adapter in the box.
