First, they make fun of Apple for doing something absurd, and then they join in by doing the same thing a year later. Apple was the first to remove chargers from its iPhone boxes and then Samsung started doing the same thing. And now it’s Xiaomi’s turn to follow suit, even for its budget Redmi phones.
Xiaomi launched its new Redmi Note 11 SE in India yesterday, which is just a rebranded Redmi Note 10S. The launch was mostly focused on the phone’s specifications and features, but Xiaomi has also confirmed on its website that the phone will ship without a charger.
Xiaomi started shipping phones without a charger since the Mi 11 last year, but you still had the option to get a box with a charger. This marks the first Redmi phone to come without a changing brick in the box.
