Since mobile phones began to be marketed, we are used to finding the charger in the box. These companies combined sold over 503 million phones in 2019 which means if they chose to stop including this, they will save on costs and the environmental impact of having such chargers lying everywhere will be greatly minimized.

In such cases, consumers may prefer buying a charger separately, while the charger in the retail box might go unused.
Samsung is tipped to follow in the steps of Apple, with new reports suggesting it will cease shipping free chargers with selected phones from next year. They even say that removing the charger wouldn't make such a great difference, as nearly every house already uses Type-C or Type-A chargers.
