After Apple stopped offering chargers for environmental reasons, many phone makers followed, and Huawei became the latest one.
Huawei sent the Mate X2, Mate 40 Pro, nova 8 Pro, and nova 8 phones to offline stores on April 16, all sold without chargers, according to Sina Tech.
Users can choose between the two sets, with the version without the charger RMB 200 ($31) cheaper.
The Huawei Mate 40 Pro, for example, is RMB 6,299 for the 8GB+128GB version without charger and cable, and RMB 6,499 with charger and cable.
Huawei has yet to respond to this. Some users speculate that Huawei's move may be the result of a shortage of charging ICs.
Starting in 2020, mobile giants including Apple, Samsung, and Xiaomi stopped offering chargers, sparking debates among Internet users.
Apple was sentenced to $2 million for selling iPhone 12 without a charger in Brazil.
