Despite the fact that Apple doesn’t have a big presence in Europe, the company’s decision to stop including its chargers in the box has sparked one of the biggest controversies in the mobile industry in 2020, a move we already knew from the moment it was taken. it would eventually happen.
It even seems a universal law. Apple makes a controversial decision, rival companies don’t care, and soon after, copy the same decision. The last one to do so was Xiaomi with the launch of the Mi 11, but is it true that they followed the same path? Will this also happen with the Mi 11 in Europe?
Xiaomi’s transition to a mobile without chargers will be, but less drastic
The Xiaomi Mi 11 was presented today in China, a mobile that raises the bar even higher for a manufacturer that aspires to be the best manufacturer not only in sales, but also in technology. Despite its improvements, what got the most attention was the decision to sell it without a charger, for environmental reasons.
New Xiaomi Mi 11: the first mobile with Snapdragon 888
The Xiaomi Mi 11 is Xiaomi’s new top-of-the-range phone, which arrives with Snapdragon 888, and was officially presented at an event in China.
However, Xiaomi will not be so radical in its decision, and this is it They will also sell a model with charger included. This model will have the same price, so in the end it will be the Chinese user who will choose the version he prefers and will not have to send the charger to the drawer in case he is not going to use it because he uses already charging in his daily wireless life.
At the moment, it’s a decision only for China
Considering the price of the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro in Europe, the strategy could be totally different.
Xiaomi Europe has confirmed to El Androide Libre that as of today they cannot confirm what their packaging strategy will be. The strategy adopted by the company is only taken for China and the future in the rest of the markets is still not confirmed.
It is very likely that Xiaomi used these two versions in China to assess its users and find out if they are really ready to ditch the charger to make a final decision or not, but it seems that by making two versions they end up s ” adapt to each market according to the importance given by users in each country when including the charger.
