Leaked Galaxy S21 marketing images confirm no charger or microSD card slot
With only two days left to go until the Galaxy S21 series is announced, more official marketing images have leaked out confirming a couple of Samsung’s most controversial decisions. 

Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra

- get the S21 series with up to $700 trade-in, accessory credits, half-price financing, and exclusive colors.

Samsung won't be shipping the Galaxy S21 with a charger

The first set of posters, which arrive courtesy of WinFuture, involve the contents of the box. Back in October when Apple unveiled the iPhone 12 series, Samsung boasted of its decision to ship a charger with its smartphones.

Fast forward to today and it seems Samsung is now in the same boat as Apple. The Galaxy S21 series is set to ship with a USB-C cable, SIM Ejection pin, and Quick Start Guide for anybody that needs help setting up the phones.

But the one thing that is very clearly missing is the power adapter. Samsung will undoubtedly market its removal as an environmental decision, as evidenced by the smaller box, but some loyal fans could be disappointed.

The Galaxy S21 series doesn't offer microSD card support

The remaining posters, published to Twitter by Roland Quandt, tease several features including support for 5G networks as standard across the entire Galaxy S21 series and an official IP water and dust resistance rating.

The cameras and their respective features are marketed too, although the highlight is perhaps the focus on internal storage. Samsung has consistently included support for microSD cards since the Galaxy S7, yet that is being removed on the Galaxy S21 line.

Instead, Samsung will turn its efforts to spreading the word about its most expensive models. Specifically, the Galaxy S21 & S21+ will be available in a 256GB configuration, and the Galaxy S21 Ultra is going to be sold with up to 512GB.
