No charging bricks with phones? Fine, give us a universal fast charging standard

Last week Samsung launched the Galaxy S21 smartphone, and with it confirmed that it would be following Apple’s example and doesn’t include a charging brick in the box.

That’s all well and good, even if it’s obvious there are clear financial incentives to stop giving charging bricks away. But it does bring up a serious problem where fast charging is concerned. Sure. you may have a charging brick at home, but what happens if it’s not compatible with your new phone?
