The company wants its customers to use their old accessories instead, with not just the charger removed from the box but the included wired headphones that Samsung normally includes with its Galaxy smartphones. Samsung says that it is promoting "better recycling habits" with its customers.

Patrick Chomet, head of customer experience at Samsung's mobile communications unit said: "We believe that the gradual removal of charger plugs and earphones from our in-box device packaging can help address sustainable consumption issues and remove any pressure that consumers may feel towards continually receiving unnecessary charger accessories with new phones".
