Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 will have charger shipped in the box in Brazil

Samsung has confirmed that the new foldable Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 will ship with the charger in the box in Brazil. Since the debut of the Galaxy S21 line, the brand has not made the accessory available in the box of devices launched in most of the countries in which it operates, including Brazil — in our country the brand has also signed an agreement to make the charger available for free to interested parties.

According to Samsung’s statement, only the Galaxy Z series devices will be launched with the charger in the package in Brazil. Models from other lines of the South Korean company will continue to be shipped without the accessory.

On the other hand, the brand will continue with the Samsung For You service. After a partnership with Procon-SP, owners of high-end devices can request the redemption of the charger for free on a promotional page and receive it at home.

The controversy of the absence of chargers in the box

Following Apple’s example, Samsung stopped sending the charger in the box of cell phones launched in Brazil from 2021 onwards. In both cases, the brands claimed that the decision aims to reduce environmental impacts with the production of new accessories.

However, manufacturers began to receive notifications from Consumer Protection and Defense bodies in several Brazilian states — as well as in other countries. The companies were accused of tying, a practice that forces the consumer to purchase an item of exclusive manufacture and essential for the use of the product.

Although Samsung has made some agreements, as happened with Procon-SP, the South Korean giant continued to be notified by bodies in other states. It is worth mentioning that the Samsung Para Você service is valid for the entire Brazilian territory.

However, owners of models that are not top-of-the-line will have to pay from R$77 to R$359 to purchase plug adapters at the brand’s official store. Values ​​vary by model and wattage.
