The investigation found some problems, such as the lack of information about the absence of the charger on some smartphones. Procon fines Apple and Samsung BRL 25.9 million for ‘tie sale’ Article 39 of the Consumer Code (CdC) points out the irregularity, since it is a sale where the consumer can only purchase one product if he also takes the other one — the term used for this situation is “tied sale” and, in this case, the abusive practice is prohibited in Brazil.

“It is evident that the consumer will have to purchase the charger in the future, forcing him to make a new purchase. This characterizes tie-in sales”, said the director of Procon, Eneylândia Rabelo Lemos.
The separate sale of smartphone and charger is characterized as “sale of house”, an abusive practice according to article 39 and items of the CdC.
