Taking a leaf out of Apple’s book, Xiaomi is all set to launch its flagship Mi 11 smartphone without a power adapter. This comes even as the China smartphone company had taken a dig at Apple for removing the charger from the iPhone 12 retail box.

In a bid to reduce its carbon footprint, Apple had announced in October that the new iPhone 12 would ship without a charger in the retail packaging box. Besides Xiaomi, Samsung had too mocked Apple for its decision.

Recently, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun confirmed on Weibo that the company’s upcoming product Mi 11 would not be shipped with a charger citing “environmental protection” as the reason.

Samsung, which had trolled Apple by saying that its Galaxy phones still come with a charger in the box, has now pulled back the advertisement, with many wondering if the company too was planning to do the same.

Post Jun’s confirmation, it did not take long for netizens to call out Xiaomi on its hypocrisy. From jokes to memes, here are how netizens responded:
