Next generation USB plug will finally be smaller and reversible

Posted by Stanislav Furman  on December 5, 2013

Good news!

The USB 3.0 Promoter Group has announced that the development of the next generation of USB plug has begun. Nothing is designed yet, but in the nearest future can expect a newly designed USB connector which will have the following key features:

  • Reversible.Yes! No worries about plug orientation any more!
  • Smaller size (comparable to MicroUSB)
  • Scalability of power charge. New new USB will adjust needed power depending on the device.

Not clear yet if the new connector will be compatible with existing USB 2.0, but I am sure there will be adapters on the market at least.
