The Realme Narzo 50A Prime (launched globally) is an upcoming budget segment smartphone from the company that will shortly arrive in India. In recent developments, the manufacturer has confirmed that they will not offer an in-box charger with this new upcoming smartphone. The removal of the charger from retail packaging, originally implemented by Apple for its iPhones, has sparked a new trend among smartphone makers.
Many smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung, have followed by eliminating the charger from the retail packaging. With the debut of the Samsung Galaxy F23 in India, Samsung has started the practice of eliminating the charger from the box (in mid-range phones). Following the same approach, Realme will shortly release the Narzo 50A Prime without a charge in the box and subsequent releases may follow suit.
