Once again, Apple was the first to take a controversial step in the smartphone market. This time, the American giant decided to remove the charger from the box of its new iPhone.
Now, Xiaomi has also decided to modify the retail box of the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite, but not without sending “the splinter” to Apple. The box of this equipment will be more environmentally friendly, but will keep all important accessories.
Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite case will be greener even with the charger
It is important to remember that Apple justified the removal of some of the accessories from the box of the new iPhone with environmental concerns. This is something that also motivates Xiaomi in this decision, stating that the Mi 10T Lite box will have a 60% reduction in the plastic used.
This reduction will not affect the contents of the box, so whoever purchases this equipment will still have access to the wall charger and other usual accessories. The first market to be affected by this decision will be the European market.
Everything I describe above is a hint for Apple and its decision to remove various accessories from the box of the new iPhone. Something that Xiaomi had already done on video, but that reinforces with this measure.
Eventually the market will eventually follow in Apple’s footsteps
This recurring mockery of Apple’s most recent decision is nothing new. The same happened when the American chose to remove the 3.5mm jack from her smartphones.
At that time, it was only a matter of time before its main rivals did the same. Therefore, it is believed that, sooner or later, Xiaomi also ends up removing the charger from the box of its equipment.
