believe that the most common one when using mobile phones is the charging interface of mobile phones. However, sometimes we go out and want to use our friends’ data cable to charge but not suitable for our mobile phone. What is going on?
This is mainly because different mobile phones use different interface standards. Below, we will look at these standards.
Mini USB interface conforms to the times
In order to cope with the data connection needs of electronic devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras and computers, and also to unify the standards, the Mini USB interface came into being.
It is worth noting that Mini USB has three models, A, B and AB. The Mini B 5Pin interface benefits from excellent anti-missing and small size (relative to the electronic products on the market at the time). In terms of advantages, it has won the favor of many hardware manufacturers.

However, with the development of the times, the shortcomings of the Mini USB are too low and too thick, and the market and users are in urgent need of the next-generation USB protocol.
Micro USB was born as an upgraded version of Mini USB
Mini USB and Micro USB comparison
To put it simply, Micro USB is a comprehensive upgrade of Mini USB, which focuses on solving the ills on Mini USB. For example, Micro USB is smaller in size, which can make hardware products slimmer and support more than 10,000 times of plugging and unplugging operations.
In addition, Micro USB is also compatible with USB1.1 and USB 2.0, and can have both data transmission and charging capabilities, which is simply born on mobile devices.
Micro USB needs to distinguish between front and back
However, Micro USB still has a big drawback – it doesn’t support blind plugging. It’s better to use Micro USB during the day. You can know the direction of insertion in advance, but at night, if you don’t look at the front and back in advance, it is very likely to insert. failure.
Type-C interface will shine in the future
Type-C interface compared to Micro USB, Type-C supports blind insertion
As a result, the Type-C interface to solve the blind insertion problem has come out – this interface finally allows the user to not have to worry about each time the data line is unpacked, and can be successfully inserted at random.
In addition to blind insertion, the Type-C interface has many advantages.
In terms of volume, the standard size of the Type-C interface is only 8.3*2.5mm, which greatly promotes the slimming of electronic products, and has the same effect as Micro USB instead of Mini USB.
In addition, the Type-C interface also supports higher transmission rates. Due to the USB 3.1 standard, the Type-C interface supports a maximum transmission rate of 10G/s.
Type-C To DP can drive up to 4K display
And the Type-C interface is also more scalable, supporting the transmission of audio and video signals, whether it is HDMI, VGA or DVI support transmission,
Combined with the upcoming 5G era, it can be said that the Type-C interface is born for the future, I believe we will see the Type-C interface shine in the future.
