Xiaomi’s CEO confirms that the Mi 11 will be sold without a charger
Apple has done it again when it started to sell iPhone 12 without a charger at the same price it should have cost with the charger, and that now they sell it separately. It has been leaked that Samsung will follow in its footsteps, and now Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, announced a new packaging that will make the box thinner and lighter, enough that there is no space for the charger, which you will have to buy separately.
“The new packaging of the Xiaomi 11, so light and thin, has been officially introduced.
Behind the lightness and thinness, we made an important decision: responding to the call of technology and environmental protection, the Xiaomi Mi 11 eliminates the charger that comes with it.”
“Today everyone has many unused chargers, which are a nuisance to you and a burden to the environment. We are well aware that this decision may not be understood, or even criticized. Is there a better solution between industry practice and the environment? Let’s talk about it next Monday at the launch event of #Xiaomi11.”
Of course, they return with the excuse of protection and the environment, thus forcing all users to buy the charger and its packaging separately, thus generating more waste.
