Samsung Phones Won’t Include Headphones & Wall Warts

When Apple released the iPhone 12 in October, some iOS fans were puzzled by the company’s decision to stop including headphones and wall warts in the box. Granted the ports are disappearing with each revision, but historically… these items have been included with every smartphone.

When Samsung released the Galaxy S21 earlier this month, they too decided to eliminate the wall wart and headphones with much confusion from users. The company recently announced that will be the direction for future smartphones as well. It seems they’re following Apple’s lead and moving towards a cable-free future. To be clear, the S21 series still includes a cable, just no wall wart. However, this move has analysts asking… how much longer with the cable be included?
