Google does not intend to include in the original packaging of the next ones Pixel 6 e Pixel 6 Pro the charger. The choice follows the philosophy already adopted by Samsung ed Apple, based on the idea that these are components that are so widespread that including others in the box is only detrimental to the environment.
If this is true, it must also be said that on large sales numbers this lack leads to great cost savings. The discontent of users about this choice has already made itself felt, especially in the event that a smartphone is compatible with fast charging but a cable suitable for this function is not included.
Google has accustomed its customers, in recent years, by delivering a charger in the original packaging 18W USB-C Power Adapter. It will also be sold together with the Pixel 5a, which will be shipped starting this month, at the price of 449 dollars.
The future of the charger on Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
The Mountain View company, however, has stated, via The Verge, that it will not include the component in the next smartphones. The choice is in continuity with what has already been proposed by the competition from Samsung and Apple. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will be the first Google phones to be touched by the new policy.
When it comes to top-of-the-line smartphones, like the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, it’s actually very likely that customers already have a charger. However, this reasoning ranks less on the devices of the A league, which by price range and features are aimed at a younger audience and who may own a smartphone for the first time.
If you don’t have a suitable charger at home, you can still buy it directly from Google. Obviously, using one you already have, the charging speed may not necessarily be the maximum possible. It will have to be used a cable and a suitable power supply, and you need to consider the component specifications.
