Following up on Google’s Benson Leung‘s skepticism of the LG G5 and HTC 10 for likely being non-compliant with specifications for USB Type-C for charging, the engineer has become a little less wary of the G5.

GTrusted test of the device’s charging practices when connected to Google’s universal 60W USB-C adapter showed that the G5 follows USB Power Delivery protocol at 5V, 3A or 9V, 2A. This means that the phone may also support DisplayPort routing.

The LG G5 and HTC 10 claim to support both the USB Power Delivery charging standard — which makes it possible to use DisplayPort — and the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 standard for faster refills.

In his Google+ post, Leung said he’d like to see more testing of DisplayPort functions for both phones and whether charge-through hubs would work with them.

Dealing with the nitty-gritty of USB-C standards, however, doesn’t prevent every phone from burning up — that’s partly up to users to make it to the safe side.
