No, OnePlus does not observe Apple or Samsung, leaving customers with no charger

Last year Apple tossed its famous white USB charger out of the packaging of its brand new iPhone 12 range. This means that anyone who buys the iPhone 12 mini, 12, iPhone 12 Pro or 12 Pro Max will not find a charging plug neatly stowed in the box. So if you don’t have the right cable to charge your iPhone yet, you’ll quickly find yourself back in the Apple Store. As is so often the case when Apple makes a big change, Samsung quickly followed suit with its flagship Galaxy S21, which is now also delivered without a plug. Both companies claim that they made this decision to reduce electronic waste and that by shrinking the packaging, they can reduce emissions by moving more phones around the world in each shipment.

It makes a lot of sense since most of us have closets full of USB charging plugs that are gathering dust, but not every company seems to agree with what Apple and Samsung have done. OnePlus has just announced that its next smartphone will be unveiled on March 22, 2021 and will come with a plug in the box at no additional cost.

Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, confirmed this important news after a fan asked the question, “New phones start WITHOUT CHARGERS?” In response, Lau replied: “Don’t worry. We have the charger in the box.”

One of the reasons OnePlus likely made this decision is because of its famous Warp Charging technology. Super-fast refills have become a major selling point for the OnePlus brand, and asking fans to pay extra for a connector can seriously detract from its appeal.

This new partnership has been rumored for some time as the camera company helps improve the photographic skills of the next generation of OnePlus smartphones.

Along with this camera upgrade, the OnePlus 9 will most likely get the latest Snapdragon 888 processor, which is not only more powerful but also much more efficient. If this news upset you, March 23rd is the date you need to be included in your journal.
