OnePlus To Incorporate USB Type-C In The OnePlus 2
OnePlus will be the first smartphone maker to incorporate USB Type-C port technology in its upcoming flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 2, the company stated.
The USB Type-C port promises several advantages over traditional ways of plugging in. On top of the list is, of course, its reversibility. This ensures each time you plug it, you plug it in the correct manner—as the users of iPhone do with Apple’s Lightening cable.
According to OnePlus, the C port can be made backward compatible by connecting it with their adapter. Meaning, alongside OnePlus 2, OnePlus One users will also be able to take the benefit of the technology.
Moreover, USB Type-C can transfer data at lightning speed of up to 10 Gbps. And it will be an excellent replacement for traditional DisplayPort and HDMI, as it can perform the functions of both of them quite efficiently.
In addition, the USB Type-C makes charging devices a lot easier, for its capability to deliver up to 100W of power.
Though about to become the pioneer to introduce the technology in smartphone industry, OnePlus was unpretentious enough by making the port an open standard. Meaning, the port won’t be limited to any typical company or to certain devices.
“The USB Type C port on the OnePlus 2 is just one” of those new features that OnePlus wants to provide its users to enrich their experience. OnePlus 2 is expected to be a complete overhaul over the OnePlus One, both in terms of hardware specs and software features.
