Starting from June 2025, all new smartphones and tablets sold in India will be required to have a standard USB-C or Type-C charging port, according to Mint, citing three anonymous sources. This move is aimed at enabling the use of a single charger and cable to power multiple devices. The same rule will be extended to laptops from the end of 2026, but will not apply to basic phones and wearables for now.
