Xiaomi copies Apple’s worst decision in recent times

This seems ironic, since several manufacturers made fun of Apple after the interesting decision they made at the launch of the iPhone 12. Apple, presenting itself as environmentally friendly and based on the surplus of cables and chargers that exists on the market which ends up destined and polluting the environment, decided not to ship the new iPhones of 2020 with chargers. An action that was quickly taken advantage of by competitors to make fun of the American manufacturer, but which, as it usually happens, ends up being followed by these same companies.

Samsung had already been appointed as one of the manufacturers that, too, would stop selling smartphones with chargers and now it is the turn of Xiaomi that ends up making this rumor official, through its CEO, Lei Jun, on the social network Weibo, with the same statement of environmental concerns.

Let’s say that the justification is quite legitimate and how many of us don’t have chargers or cables in unused drawers and that, sooner or later, it will end up in the trash? Here the question is that Apple was even one of the companies that made fun of Apple as soon as the manufacturer made the new iPhones official.

It was through the social network Weibo that the CEO of Xiaomi confirmed that the new Xiaomi Mi 11 will not have a charger in the box. According to him, this is the answer to the balance between technology and environmental protection, and points to today, during the presentation of the Xiaomi Mi 11, more information, stating that he hopes to have the support of fans.

There is, in fact, a strong environmental argument for not including superfluous chargers with new phones, especially if the chargers are identical to the dozens of others that most people already own. But it seems that as phone makers continue to raise prices for their new devices, they’re somehow finding ways to give customers less – no headphone connectors, no recharges – than they did in the past, increasing your profit margins. However, rumors suggest that Samsung will have its new Galaxy S21 cheaper than its predecessors, which can be justified even by the lack of charger. We will see.

Apple’s decision not to include chargers with the iPhone 12 was met with some criticism and competitors like Samsung reminded customers in an announcement that ps chargers were “included in their Galaxy”. This Galaxy ad has apparently been deleted, and rumors continue to emerge that Samsung will not include a charger on its next Galaxy S21 phones.

Shortly after the launch of the iPhone 12, Xiaomi tweeted that it “left nothing out of the box” for its Mi 10T Pro, adding a short video clip showing a Mi 10T box with a charger inside. Perhaps the conclusion here is that companies should keep the marketing team informed of future product decisions.
