Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to employ a Type-C USB port

From Vietnam comes a video that suggests we will see a Type-C USB port on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. We had an idea that this was going to be the case when a listing on India's import-export website Zauba hinted that a new version of Sammy's Gear VR headset is on the way. Since the current Gear VR works with a micro USB port only, one reason to prep a new variant would be to make it compatible with the Type-C USB port found on a new Samsung device. And that would point to the Galaxy Note 7.

The video that we alluded to earlier shows three different charging cables. One is a Type-C USB cable for the Microsoft Lumia 950 (seen in black). The other two white cables are made by Samsung in Vietnam; while one features a micro USB connector, the other carries the Type-C plug. You might notice that the white Type-C USB cord has a plastic wrap around it that contains the N930 model number belonging to Samsung's eagerly awaited phablet.

With the Type-C port, users can transfer data faster, charge batteries quicker, and the plug is reversible. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be introduced during the next Unpacked event, which will be held in New York City on August 2nd.

Thanks for the tip!
