Are you wondering what that thing USB Type-C is? The answer is very simple – it is a faster, more versatile and conveniently reversible connector that replaces USB, power and other types of cords. Also the Type-C port measures just 8.4mm by 2.6mm. This means it’s small enough to work for even the smallest peripheral devices. With Type-C, a USB cable’s both ends will be the same, so you don’t need to worry about plugging it in upside down.
Apple was the first major company to throw its weight behind USB Type-C with a flagship product – the new MacBook, but Google isn’t far behind. We have noticed that the search company launched its own brand new notebook – Chromebook Pixel, with the same USB and according to Google Product Manager Adam Rodriguez Type-C will be appearing in Android phones soon.
