Realme dropped a post on its community forum earlier this week, stating that the company is set to drop the bundled charger from the upcoming Narzo 50A Prime smartphone.
Realme claimed that this decision was made with sustainability in mind, pointing to its target for net-zero carbon emissions by 2025.
This trend was started by Apple, then Samsung also hopped on the trend, taking it as far as removing the chargers from not just their flagships, but also their budgets.
Now sadly, Realme will continue on this trend, and we can’t be sure if it’s just the Narzo 50A Prime , or if it will also affect other budget Realme phones.
The only company that seems not to notice this (not that they haven’t) is Xiaomi as they still provide chargers in their latest Xiaomi 12 series, and i really respect them for that.
“If I was only giving you an 18W charger for the rest of my life, maybe I’d remove the charger from the box. But if I’m changing the voltage and the capacity of the solution, which is now 65W or 150W, where will the consumer go and buy this charger from?”
This was a quoted saying from Realme global CEO, Madhav Sheth when he was being interviewed by XDA-Developers.
He also stated that there would be a big leap in terms of chipset performance and screen revolution of the device as a result of the charger being dropped.
