Apple's decision to not include power adapters with the new iPhone 12 series and also removing it for the older iPhone models was rather ‘controversial' and was mocked by a bunch of companies including Samsung. Now, according to some rumours, documentation for Samsung Galaxy S21 suggests that the new devices might not come with the charger in the box.

Brazilain website Tecnoblog reported that the new Samsung Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra have just been approved by ANATEL in Brazil with codenames SM-G991B/DS, SM-G996B/DS, and SM-G998B/DS, respectively. ANATEL is the Brazilian equivalent of the FCC in the US.

Rumour had it that Samsung would be ditching chargers in its future smartphones, so this is really not surprising, but it is funny that the company is doing exactly what it mocked Apple for. Also, this is not new for Samsung, the company has done this earlier too. A few years ago in 2017, Samsung make jokes about Apple removing the headphone jack from the iPhone and then went ahead to launch the Galaxy Note 10 in 2019 without a headphone jack.

According to reports, Brazil's National Consumer Secretary is considering forcing Apple to sell iPhones with the charger in the country so if that is the case then Samsung will also have to do the same in Brazil. And maybe in other countries as well.
