China has decided to develop a single fast charge standard for devices sold within the country. According to The Register, local authorities hope that the standard will eventually be adopted as a global standard as well.
At the meeting, the representative of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that it was necessary to promote "" and stressed that standardization ".
According to the representative of TC626, the timely transformation of fast charge standards into international standards can enable China to gain leadership in this area. Technical details are not yet known, but it is clear that a single fast charge standard will give developers a number of advantages over competitors, in particular, effectively challenging companies such as the American Qualcomm, which is promoting the Quick Cargo technology for smartphones on Snapdragon chipsets.
If Chinese producers are less dependent on Qualcomm technology, this is likely to help China achieve a semi-conductive self-sufficiency by 2035. In addition, the standard will help Chinese smartphone manufacturers avoid the cost of independent development. Large companies like Xiaomi are working on their own technology. The national standard will allow them to concentrate on other areas. Finally, Chinese smartphones will become even more attractive around the world if they use the standard charging system used by many manufacturers.
Given that the EU and other regions are considering the use of a single port in gadgets, a ready unified solution will only facilitate the widespread adoption of Chinese technologies.
