Masters of innovation, Samsung recently launched Galaxy S21 but without the charger. Samsung Galaxy S21 will come with a USB-C to USB-C cable, but no way to plug it in to the wall. The newly launched Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra will ship without a charging brick in the box. Furthermore, company has also decided not to pack the in-ear earphones in the retail box.
Samsung has taken this step to only include a USB-C to USB-C cable in the retail box but without a charger to cater to sensitive market where customers look to save even on luxury smartphones. To be able to use Samsung Galaxy S21 without charger, one needs to own fast-charging adaptor. In case not, customers will have to shell out a little extra money from their pocket to buy the Samsung charger. The only good news here is that Samsung has reduced the price of its 25W charger from $35 to $19.99, but not for the Indian consumers. Currently, the Samsung charger is priced at Rs 1,999 and is only available via Samsung’s online store.
