Xiaomi Mi 11 will not ship with Charger
Yes, it is a U-turn from Xiaomi policies. They followed what they used to make fun of. This October, when iPhone announced that its new iPhone 12 series phone would not be shipped with Charger, it was Samsung and Xiaomi who mocked iPhone for that. They made fun of Apple by many marketing jokes, and through ads, they showed that they are not taking out any accessories from the packing.
A month later, Samsung removed such posts and ads from social media when they announced Samsung Galaxy S21 to ship without a Charger. Now the same is happening with Chinese tech giant Xiaomi.
How Xiaomi Confirmed this Charger Removal?
