On December 28, 2020, we witnessed the official presentation of the expected flagship Xiaomi Mi 11. Thanks to earlier leaks, we were ready to remove the charging adapter, following the example of the American Apple or the South Korean Samsung.
There are several benefits to removing chargers from smartphone packages. These include significantly less waste generated by unnecessary adapters or the ability to transport multiple pieces of smartphones at once thanks to smaller packages.
Redmi K40 follows the trend
As you know, we can look forward to the presentation of the flagship in the near future Redmi K40. It should bring very good parameters, which will be combined with a pleasant price. We will see another flagship killer with a great price-performance ratio.
The latest information regarding the arrival of the Redmi K40 smartphone reveals interesting news. Lu Weibing, CEO of Redmi, posted pictures with two different smartphone pack sizes on the Weibo social network.
Although the scenario is similar to the case Xiaomi Mi 11 has not yet been confirmed, it is very likely that we will see a package without a charging adapter. In addition, the premium design of the box in black with a combination of a gold inscription was unveiled.
Tackling the problem of excess waste from charging adapters is very much needed, as it wastes up to 300 tons of charging adapters. But the question is whether this is the right way.
If you read our previous one an article, you must have noticed that the packaging of the Xiaomi Mi 11 smartphone without a charger was a poor success. The saleability of this variant from the total sales of Mi 11 is only 6%. We will see if the situation with the Redmi K40 improves or, conversely, worsens.
We will continue to monitor the whole situation and bring the latest news. If you want to be the first to find out about everything, regularly follow our technology portal XiaomiPlanet, join our new group on Facebook and sign up to receive articles directly to your inbox.
