The National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) opened a public consultation for a proposal to standardize cell phone chargers by wire with USB type C standard, according to a statement at the end of Tuesday (29) on the agency’s website.
The proposal follows a similar movement carried out in other regions, such as Europe. Earlier this month, EU countries and parliamentarians agreed on a single USB-C charging port for cell phones, tablets and cameras.
Citing the European bloc’s initiative, Anatel said that the USB Type-C standard was chosen because it is already widely used by most global manufacturers and has internationally recognized standards.
USB-C connectors are used on devices that use the Android system, while iPhones are charged using a Lightning cable.
Contributions to Anatel’s text can be made until August 26.
