Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Said to Feature a USB Type-C Port


The Galaxy Note 5 won’t be launched before September this year but even then there are a number of rumors and reports about what users can expect from Samsung’s next flagship device. Now a new report has claimed that the Galaxy Note 5 is going to have a USB Type-C port which would basically increase data transfer speeds to and from the Galaxy Note 5.

USB 3.1 Type-C is offering a transfer rate of 10Gbps which is double that of the much more common USB 3.0 standard. Apart from this the Type-C cables also offer 20 volts and 5 amps of power as opposed to 5 volts and 1.8 amps of its predecessor.

This basically means that the users won’t have to wait as long as they previously did for data transfer and charging. One other advantage of the USB Type-C is the fact that the cable can be plugged into the port any way which means that it is reversible and so users won’t have to fiddle around with the cable.

Samsung has all set to launch the Galaxy Note 5 at IFA 2015 which will be held in Berlin this September. The handset may also feature a 2K or 4K Super AMOLED display with S Pen and an octa-core Exynos 7422 processor.
