Neither the Pixel 6 nor the Pixel 6 Pro will come with a charger in the box. Google is following in the footsteps of Apple and Samsung, with the biggest companies currently doing the same thing – either for all devices (Apple) or only for flagships (Samsung).
The Pixel 5a is the last Google phone to include a charging brick in the box. Google said The edge that most people already have a USB-C charger, so there’s no point in including one anymore. Like Apple and Samsung, Google has been silent that this move also helps them save money. Surprise Surprise.
It will be interesting to see if Chinese phone makers ever follow this trend, as a lot of their marketing is focused on charging speed and getting all those blazingly fast recharges you need to use brick and cable. in the box. . That investment in super fast wired charging is maybe what will keep those bricks in those (Chinese) boxes a bit longer, we’ll see.
In the case of Google, its products have never been some of the fastest to load, and the same goes for Apple and Samsung, so we kind of see a theme here.
