Apple and Samsung made the headlines when they announced that they won’t be offering chargers for their new series of smartphones, and Google is following suit as they announced their unveiling of Pixel 6 this coming fall.
Halts charger production due to environmental concerns
According to reports by The Verge, this move by Google for not offering chargers was brought up by the thought that people with smartphones already own a USB-C type charging brick, therefore, it isn’t a necessity to include one with their new phones.
Previously, Apple started this trend with its iPhone 12 due to concerns about the environment surrounding e-waste which can be true for some users. Not only this, but it also contributes to a massive chunk of cost-saving when it comes to such devices.
Furthermore, Samsung and Google are now following suit.
