Historic decision made: USB-C will become a common charging port for all phones, tablets, cameras and other gadgets in the EU

Representatives of the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament have today decided that from autumn 2024, USB-C will become a common charging port for all mobile phones, tablets, cameras and other devices in the region.

The law is part of a broader EU effort to make products in the EU greener, reduce e-waste and make life easier for consumers.

Under the new regulations, consumers will no longer need a new charger and cable every time they buy a new device. They will be able to use one charger for all their small and medium size portable electronic devices. Mobile phones, tablets, e-readers, headphones, digital cameras, VR headsets, portable game consoles, and portable speakers charged via a wired cable must be equipped with a USB-C port, regardless of manufacturer. Laptops will also have to be adapted to the requirements within 40 months of entry into force.

Charging speeds are also consistent across devices that support fast charging, allowing users to charge their devices at the same speed using any compatible charger.

Consumers will be provided with clear information about the charging characteristics of new devices, making it easier for them to check the compatibility of existing chargers. Buyers will be able to choose whether they want to purchase new electronic equipment with or without a charger.

This will lead to more reuse of chargers and help consumers save up to 250 million euros per year on unnecessary purchases of chargers. It is estimated that recycled and unused chargers amount to about 11,000 tons of e-waste annually.

As you can see, the design will still be very unusual with many different elements and accents, but this is normal for a gaming smartphone. The camera module will change somewhat, although in general Asus is clearly not trying to make the new model radically different from the previous one.

Should HTC have gone back to making smartphones HTC Desire

HTC has been intriguing over the past few weeks with a flagship smartphone with a focus on virtual and augmented reality technologies, but in fact it turned out to be the $405 HTC Desire 22 Pro, built on the Snapdragon 695. It’s certainly not a flagship, but the price is considerable.

HTC Desire 22 Pro received a screen with a diagonal of 6.6 inches, Full HD + resolution and a frame rate of 120 Hz, as well as a triple main camera with sensors with a resolution of 64, 13 and 5 MP. Judging by the picture, there is no periscope module, which means that the “optical zoom” will be achieved due to the difference in focal lengths of different lenses.

In the configuration of the device, there is also protection in accordance with the degree of IP67 (and this is really not often found in mid-range models), a 4520 mAh battery (both wireless and reverse wireless charging are supported), pre-installed Android 12. The configuration is one – with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory.
