Samsung is mocking Apple’s move to remove the power adapter from the iPhone 12 lineup and other iPhone models on its social channels, pointing to the fact that the Samsung Galaxy smartphone continues to ship with the power adapter.
“Included with your Galaxy,” Samsung reads a Facebook post with a picture of the power adapter.
Apple Paul will no longer significantly provide power adapters or earpods with the purchase of the iPhone, the modification applied to the new iPhone 12 models and the new purchase of the iPhone 11, iPhone SE and iPhone XR models. Apple Pal says the change will reduce carbon emissions by eliminating accessories and the small size of the iPhone now in use.
The shift was made for environmental reasons, but there has been speculation that Apple has removed cost-cutting accessories due to the cost of the 5G modem used in the new iPhonephone lineup. Apple’s iPhones shipping only with a USB-C power cable, and power adapters and headphones must be purchased separately.
Although Samsung is testing the USB-C power adapter that comes with the existing Galaxy models Dello, rumors have suggested that Samsung also plans to stop including charging in some of its smartphone bucks starting in 2021. Samsung is reportedly planning to knock out power adapters because chargers have become “widespread” and doing so will reduce production costs.
It’s not clear if this will happen, and Samsung may choose to offer power adapters to differentiate its smartphone from Apple’s iPhone. However, before Samsung copied the decision and released the 2018 Galaxy A8 without a headphone jack, in 2016 Apple mocked the moment to remove the headphone jack from the iPhone 7.
Samsung has a long history of mocking Apple’s design and production decisions, often before adopting some such changes. Samsung is targeting the iPhone 12: this year, competing with its Galaxy Note 20 5G and Galaxy S20 5G lineup. In addition to the ribs about the power adapter, Samsung has also shared a tweet mocking Apple Pal’s 5G release late.
Some people are just saying hi to the pace, we’ve been friends for a while. Get your Galaxy 5G device now. https://t.co/yNxIoxGt4h pic.twitter.com/bC1YOLe4gc
