Samsung started a trend last year of shipping its flagship Galaxy S21 series without bundled charger. This new trend was quite contagious and it was transferred to Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. The same trend continued with the recent launch of S22 series. Now it has been confirmed that this new trend will be followed in the upcoming Galaxy A series in their US launch. The Galaxy A13 5G and Galaxy A03s are to be launched in US with no in-box wall plug.
Following the trend, it is rumored that the Galaxy M-series will also be coming without a bundled charger in all their M-series devices. Now it is not confirmed whether the same protocol will be followed in the rest of their launches around the world by Galaxy A and M- series.
When we buy a new phone we get a spare charger that we don’t use; hence adding up to the e-waste. So, this move has been adopted to reduce e-waste. Although, it will be a problem or issue for those whose are shifting to Samsung’s company device from the other company device; as they may not be having the same charger and Samsung is not providing in-box charger.
