    The numbers and color a USB port (not the cable usually but sometimes the cable is a red or blue color indicating it's speed (number) capability but it's usually and sometimes only the female port that's colored to indicated it's speed or version) don't have anything to do with their size.

    The larger one are simply called USB.

    There are several types of smaller USB connections and ports. The smaller ones are generally referred to as micro-usb.

    The one on the Right is a Standard USB 2.0 connector    If the center piece was blue it would be 3.0

    The one on the left is a USB "C" connector.

      One of these answers is stupid. Guess which one. Neither is micro USB... that’s USB-C.

    They don't look any different to me same as 1.0 looked the same, the difference is the performance so that could be either.

    The bigger one is USB A, the smaller one is USB C.

    USB 2.0 and 3.0 refers to the protocol and are not related to the size.

      Size does matter though.

    It looks like 2.0 but could be 3.0. Typically 3.0 has a blue plastic component inside the metal shaft.
