TL;DR
  • A leaker has claimed that Samsung could ditch bundled chargers for more budget phones.
  • This would reportedly affect Galaxy M and Galaxy A series phones.
  • Samsung has previously dropped the charger from the Galaxy A13 5G and A03S.

Samsung was one of the first Android smartphone makers to ditch the bundled charger for its flagship phones, following in Apple’s footsteps. We’ve seen the company abandon the in-box charger for a couple of cheaper phones, but a new leak suggests this is just the beginning.

Frequent tipster Yogesh Brar has claimed on Twitter that Samsung won’t offer in-box chargers for upcoming Galaxy M and Galaxy A series smartphones. Furthermore, Brar added that the upcoming Galaxy F23 will lack a charger too.

This wouldn’t be the first time we see Samsung dropping the in-box charger for a budget device, as the Galaxy A13 5G and A03S both ditched the bundled charger. Either way, you might want to double-check the box before you buy a budget Galaxy device.

It would be a shame though, as budget phones are often the first smartphones for many people. So someone buying a smartphone for the first time — or for the first time in a long time — might not be able to fall back to a previous USB-C charger.

Would you buy a budget phone without a charger?
