Xiaomi pulls an Apple, Mi 11 won't get bundled charger
Much like Apple's latest flagship iPhones, Xiaomi's Mi 11 will not come with a charger in the retail box. According to the company's CEO, Lei Jun, Xiaomi has 'canceled' the charger that comes included in the retail box in response to environmental concerns. As for the highlights, the Mi 11 will have a Super AMOLED screen, flagship hardware, and Harman Kardon-tuned speakers.
How ironical is that!
