Remember the Galaxy S5? Remember that weirdo Micro-B connector port that supported USB 3.0?
That was a funky aberration, right? Since then, Samsung has decided to keep with plain ‘ol Micro-B for juicing up your phone and delivering data to and from other places. Even as many other OEMs slide over to USB Type-C connectors, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge kept that same ‘ol same ‘ol on the bottom side of their frames.
However, we’re hearing now from SamMobile that the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 will wield a USB-C port. That port may support the USB 3.1 standard running through it, putting in USB Power Delivery 2.0 plus HDMI and Display Port signal carriage, but we especially can’t be sure with that part of the rumor. The outlet also argues that with the new connector could come a new Gear VR headset to support USB-C. Perhaps hopes for USB 3.1 could go hand-in-hand with that thought.
We’re not sure about you, but all we want is to insert our charging jack in either orientation.
