FUD Zilla reports work is in progress on a "Type D" HDMI connector specification, this is a smaller connector designed for portable devices like cell phones and digital cameras.
The new Type D connectors, as they are called, are prototypes based on the next HDMI standard which is currently in development. It is expected to be released before the end of June, which would mean that the first compliant products could appear as early as Q3 this year.
For starters, the new “mini connector” is roughly the same size as a Micro-USB connector and significantly smaller than the existing HDMI Type C connector for portable devices. Overall, it will maintain the same 19-pin design, but at half the size. We found it interesting that precautions were taken to ensure that a Micro-USB plug would not fit in a Type D receptacle given that the physical dimensions of both are remarkably similar.
