Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun said the idea of removing the charging adapter wasn't following Apple's footstep
Last month, Xiaomi have released the Mi 11 with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, 120Hz refresh rate, and more. But this device would not come with the charging adapter in the box just like the iPhone 12 series.
According to sources, Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun said that he got the idea of removing the charging adapter in 2015. He also mentioned that the reason for removing the charger is because when the company moved to the Xiaomi Technology Park, they threw several boxes of chargers which he thought was a waste. Now that the company implemented the idea of removing the charging adapter from the box, a big number of people were quick to criticise Xiaomi copied Apple.
Xiaomi's CEO posted his idea since 2015 on his Weibo account
