In this news, we discuss the At OnePlus 8T launch OnePlus takes a dig at Apple iPhone 12, shows 65W charger in the box.
Coming just a day after the iPhone 12, where Apple revealed that it will no longer pair a charger with its phones, OnePlus, during the launch of OnePlus 8T, attempted to graft onto it for fun. During the unveiling of the OnePlus 8T, the company showed a scene in which the OnePlus 8T charger comes out of the phone box. And then, just to make sure viewers get the message, the company explained it.
An executive from OnePlus, while explaining the specifications and features of the smartphone, put special emphasis on the fact that the OnePlus 8T comes with a 65W charger inside the box. Explaining the charger’s capabilities, the OnePlus executive said, “Even though it costs us twice to make our old power adapter when you buy the OnePlus 8T, don’t worry, we’ll throw it in the box for free. “
OnePlus unveiled its flagship OnePlus 8T on October 14, a day after Apple launched its new line of iPhones. While Apple launched four new iPhones and a HomePod Mini, OnePlus launched its fourth device of the year with OnePlus Buds Z.
Just to give you a little more context: Apple iPhone The 12 range ships without a charger or EarPods inside the box. Not only that, Apple is also removing the charger and headphones from existing iPhones. So if you buy the iPhone 11 Now you will not get the new charger unless you get a unit that shipped before this announcement.
Apple’s move drew mixed reactions from fans. The Cupertino giant had announced during the event that it would not include a charger or EarPods inside the box and would make it thinner for environmental reasons. The chargers and headphones that come with phones often add to electronic waste. Most people already have a charger and a pair of headphones, and the new ones are mostly unused. While Apple has its reasons, it hasn’t pleased all Apple fans.
And it gave an opportunity to OnePlus which did a subtle dig at Apple. He pointed out that the OnePlus 8T, which costs Rs 42,999, will come with a 65W chain charger but the iPhone 12 Pro Max with its price of Rs 1,29,000 will not be.
Apple iPhone The 12 series phones come with a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box. If users don’t already have a charger, they will have to buy one and Apple sells a power brick for Rs 1900 on its online store in India. The charger’s price was reduced after Apple’s announcement on October 14.
