A Rumor have suggested that follow in Apple’s steps, Samsung is planning to remove the charger from the box of the new Galaxy S21. The new Samsung Galaxy will be announced this Thursday. Evan Blass, a reliable leaker shared images of the official Galaxy S21; which confirms that Samsung’s new smartphones will come without a power adapter in the box.
Blass has tweeted images of what he claims to be the official webpage of the Galaxy S21 and S21 Ultra. Before, he also leaked the entire iPhone 12 lineup before the Apple event. Besides having a new design, 5G support, and other enhancements, the new Samsung’s phones will not have a charger in the box — just like the iPhone.
In the website called “What’s in the box,” Samsung says that the new smartphones come with “just what you need” — a USB-C cable, the SIM-ejection tool, and a guide. Same as Apple has been saying since the company removed the power adapter from the Apple Watch box last year; Samsung also claims that the decision was made to help the environment.

This is somewhat contradictory to what Samsung did when Apple announced the iPhone 12 line. Samsung did made jokes on social networks; after Apple removed the charger from the iPhone box and jokes on social networks after Apple removed the charger from the iPhone box. But when rumors about the Galaxy S21 emerged on the web, these posts were deleted.
In a related note, Samsung invited its Twitter followers today to watch the Samsung Unpacked event this Thursday; but the tweets were shared using “Twitter for iPhone.” The company later deleted the tweets, but it was too late.
