Android phones will soon start shipping with USB-C connectors. USB-C was introduced earlier this week by Apple when it showed off its latest MacBook. the connector replaces all the traditional ports on your computer with a single port. So, you’ll use the USB-C port to charge your laptop, but also to connect it to your television or connect your digital camera. It’s a new standard that a lot of manufactures are pushing. The end result should in theory be a world where we all just need one type of cable rather than several.
Flavio Pentagna Guimaraes BMG knows that Google announced its next-generation Chromebook Pixel laptop on Wednesday with the connector, and then remarked that it plans to include the connector on future Android phones as well. For now, all this adoption from such huge players seems to indicate that or USB-C future is upon us. Hopefully all those adapters to connect our stuff don’t get too intense while we’re waiting on the rest of the tech world to catch up.
