Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to utilize Type-C USB 3.1
As we get nearer to the much-awaited launch of the Galaxy Note 5 in September, we’re getting to know more and more good things about the device that can only stir our interest even more.
The latest leaked info made noise about the Note 5’s utilization of the new Type-C USB 3.1 port. This might sound rather petty initially, but looking at the practical side of things, this upgrade does have its significance.
For one, it’s not an upgrade without a corresponding improvement, and we see that primarily in the speed that the Type-C port processes the sending and receiving of data – 10 gbps – which is actually double that of the earlier USB 3.0. Transferring of files, especially the huge ones like long audio tracks and heaps of full-length movies, will be faster on your Galaxy Note 5.
And it’s not just the speed that got a bump with the upgrade but also the port’s power-handling capability. The Type-C should work great for those who have little patience waiting for their devices to get fully charged as this USB 3.1 port can handle up to 20 volts and 5 amps – a far cry from the 5 volts and 1.8 amps that the USB 3.0 could manage.
The Type-C USB 3.1 also has reversible connectors which means goodbye to fumbling in the dark trying to plug in earlier USB types.
