Samsung copying Apple once more, is this for good?

After the new announcement of the iPhone 12, Samsung started to mock apple about his next bold move.

After the new announcement of the iPhone 12, Samsung started to mock apple about his next bold move.

The removal of the charger was criticized by many and seems like copied by more in the future. Specially Samsung started to share an ad, mocking Apple for not including the charging accessory with the purchase of the iPhone 12.

All these information is based on rumors from June and October suggesting that the upcoming Galaxy s21 phones would not include the power adapter or even the headphones. Now, this information has been confirmed by the regulatory information.

From the Brazilian regulatory agency ANATEL, we can confirm that the new Galaxy smartphone models are going to be for sale and the documentation apparently confirms that none of the three new smartphones that are coming are going to be released with the charger or headphones.

Since this is a bold move that no one else has done, we can really say that if Samguns does this, they will be following Apple's footsteps. (nothing wrong there, just not admiting it is what's wrong)

The reason why Apple said that the accessories were eliminated is basically for environmental reasons, but there has been speculation suggesting Apple removed the power adapter and EarPods to cut costs due to the expense of the 5G chips used in the new iPhones.

To Sumarize:
Samsung as well may be planning to stop include the headphones and the power adapter with new shipments of the Galaxy smartphones in order to save some cash, with this move, they will be offering the accessories as a standalone purchase like Apple does.

It's funny how in the past Samsung has mocked Apple for some of their desicions but in reality they are doing the same exact thing and basically just waiting for the public's reaction to see how well the change is received. If the change is welcome, they copy it even if they have mocked them before.

Samsung's new phones are expected to debut in January of 2021 with the new four rear cameras, higher capacity batteries, faster chips, and more.
