Here is the slim Xiaomi Mi 11 box
The experienced manager also shared the image of the Xiaomi Mi 11 box. Since there is no charger in the box, the thickness has decreased significantly. We can even say that it is as thin as the iPhone 12 box.
Lei Jun stated that they are aware that this decision may not be understood by consumers, or even criticized. He also asked if there was a good solution for “protecting the environment”.
“Xiaomi’s approach will be different from Apple”
Ice Universe, one of the reliable sources of information in the mobile industry, said that consumers should not panic because Xiaomi’s approach to this issue will be different from Apple.
It is not known what approach the Chinese company will take with regard to the charger. He may be planning to offer an optional standard charger and a more powerful power adapter for a fee. In any case, we will learn all the details on December 28th, just two days later.
Yes, Xiaomi cancelled the charger in the box. But Xiaomi and Apple treat consumers in completely different ways. I will keep it secret first, and wait for the Xiaomi conference to let the CEO tell us. pic.twitter.com/zQfrZcqsVu
