  • The USB-C charging solution is apparently on its way to becoming standardized in India.
  • At an interdepartmental meeting, industry players reportedly agreed to adopt the USB-C standard.
  • Samsung and Apple were reportedly present, all supporting the plan.

India appears to be following Europe’s lead in standardizing USB-C as a universal charging solution for all devices, according to multiple reports, suggesting the standard may expand to the country in the future.

Reuters (opens in a new tab) reports that the nation’s electronics industry players have agreed to adopt USB-C as the standard charging method for smartphones, laptops and tablets. However, the standard will be implemented in stages, so it may take some time before USB-C becomes the universal charging standard in India.
