USB-C Finally arrives on Samsung phones

After bundles of speculation (and coinciding disappointment) surrounding the use of USB-C on theGalaxy S7 and S7 edge earlier this year, Samsung has finally made the jump to the latest USB-C standard on the Galaxy Note 7. In the transition Samsung has kept its "Fast Charge" technology available, which lets you quickly charge up the battery with compatible chargers (including Quick Charge 2.0 devices).

 

With the move to the new port, Samsung is trying to ease the pain of the transition by including a Micro-USB to USB-C adapter in the box with every phone as well. With  the new port Samsung looks forward to years of interoperability with new accessories, cables and chargers — including refreshes of its own accessories to include USB-C cables or adapters.

The one big change that was necessitated by the new port is a refresh of the Gear VR virtual reality headset, which in its latest iteration comes with plugs to be used with both USB-C and Micro-USB Galaxy devices. The new Gear VR itself offers a USB-C charging plug for those who need to charge up their headset while playing.
