What is USB-C, List Of Phones That Uses It

USB-C also known as USB Type-C is the emerging industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power, It is a 24-pin fully reversible-plug USB connector system better and faster than the previous USB versions. The USB-C connector was developed by the USB Implementers Forum, the group of companies that has developed, certified, and shepherded the USB standard. It counts more than 700 companies in its membership, including Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, Microsoft, and Samsung.
USB Type-C
The USB Type-C connector is similar to a micro USB connector in design at first glance, but it's slightly thicker to house its best feature: such as Lightning and MagSafe. However, the USB-C connector has no up or down orientation. Users don't need to flip the connector in order to plug it in as long as the connector is lined up appropriately. It is reversible, this means the cables have the same connector on both ends, therefore you don't have to figure out which end to plug in, which has not been the case with all the USB cables we've been using for the past 20 years. Isn't that great?

Meanwhile, the normal protocol with this new USB-C connector is USB 3.1, which, at 10Gbps, is theoretically twice as fast as USB 3.0. Perhaps the most useful protocol that USB-C supports is Thunderbolt 3. This last adds major new features and capabilities, such as 40Gbps bandwidth and reduced power consumption, while being able to move as much as 100 watts of power.

A USB type-C port with Thunderbolt 3 means a single cable is all you need to power and move a large amount of information (up to and including two 60Hz 4K displays) to and from even a complex device like a computer, something many laptop manufacturers have been quick to take advantage of.
