The European Commission approved USB-C as a single charging port. And set my sights on wireless charging

The European Commission has made a final decision about a single charging port. From 2024, all devices sold in the EU must be equipped with a USB-C port. An exception may be those devices that are thinner than the connector itself.

The new rules will apply to a wide range of portable devices:

  • Cell phones;
  • tablets and e-books;
  • digital cameras and game consoles;
  • headphones and portable speakers;
  • wireless mice and keyboards
  • portable navigation systems;
  • laptops (40 months after entry into force).

This approach will reduce the amount of e-waste, because various chargers “provide” 11,000 tons of e-waste every year. The innovation will also save users money and time, as they will not have to look for a suitable charger.

The new law also implies special labeling for devices. It will be located on the package and will notify the buyer whether the charger comes with the device, what power it has and other characteristics.

In addition, it is reported that the European Commission plans to standardize wireless charging. They said that this technology could become available to more devices if different protocols are compatible with each other.

Earlier it was reported that by the fall of 2024, the iPhone will definitely switch to USB-C.

Such behavior is tantamount to suicide the insider believes that

Well-known insider Ice Universe, who regularly shares exclusive information about the latest in the mobile industry, made a prediction about the upcoming policy of Samsung.

He said that against the background of competition with Chinese manufacturers, Samsung, led by the current head of the mobile division, will remain “lazy.”

Chinese brands and Apple will take practical action to convince Samsung and Tae Moon Ro (T.M. Roh) stagnate, blindly cut costs, strive for high profits and be lazy. This behavior is tantamount to suicide.

“Such behavior is tantamount to suicide,” the insider believes that Samsung will “mark time” and S23 sales will be low

In addition, the insider made a forecast about sales of the flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, as well as other upcoming models of the manufacturer.

It can be foreseen that sales of the Galaxy S23 and S23+ will become increasingly insignificant. Samsung will only be able to maintain a high level of sales of the flagship model Galaxy S23 Ultra. Until the release of the Fold5 and Flip5, sales of the Fold4 and Flip4 will drop significantly.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend of smartphones with waterfall screens, the notch in the iPhone X, the new design of the iPhone 14 and Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor. Recently, he was the first to accurately report that Redmi Note 12 Pro + will receive a 200-megapixel main camera. Exclusive information about new products is leaked to him by sources in the research and development department of the South Korean giant.

The first Tesla trucks with megawatt charging have been delivered

Tesla made the first deliveries of its Semi truck to customers on Thursday evening, five years after the unveiling. The online presentation showed trucks adorned with the liveries of Pepsi and Frito-Lay, a snack food subsidiary of PepsiCo.

Tesla Semi was shown as a prototype in 2017. Then Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that production would begin in 2019. At the same time, during today’s presentation, Musk did not say how many trucks were delivered by PepsiCo and how many cars were produced in total.

The all-electric truck features an unusual design in which the driver sits in the center of the cab rather than on the side. Tesla boasts about the truck’s power, saying it accelerates much faster, even when fully loaded, than traditional diesel-powered trucks. During the presentation, a video was shown showing how a fully loaded Tesla Semi accelerates up a steep hill and overtakes other trucks.

Because the Tesla Semi doesn’t have a multi-speed transmission like diesel trucks, it’s also much easier to drive. According to Musk, the truck can travel 800 km on a single charge. It has three electric motors, one of which drives the truck most of the time, while the other two are used primarily for acceleration and hard traction. According to the Tesla leader, the truck can pull up to 37 tons.

The trucks were announced to support megawatt ultra-fast chargers, however it was not announced how long it would take to recharge the truck. These chargers will also be available for use by Cybertruck drivers when the Tesla pickup goes on sale, Musk said.
