OnePlus 2 will be first phone in the world to sport a USB Type-C port

The unveiling of the OnePlus 2 is just days away from now, and its maker is continuing its tradition of revealing details about the smartphone in a bit by bit manner. In quite a surprising move, it has equipped the upcoming device with a USB Type-C port, making it the first handset in the world to adhere to the new standard.

Owners of the OnePlus 2 will be able to take advantage of this port while charging the device as well as connecting it to a PC. The great part about a USB Type-C port is that it’s reversible, and hence saves you the frustration of plugging in your cable again and again to find the right side. Here, both the sides are the right side.

One big disadvantage is that those to decide to buy the 2 will need to always carry their chargers with them, as the microUSB cables that can be found everywhere right now won’t be compatible with the handset. It has been reported that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 which is expected to be launched in September this year will also be sporting a USB Type-C port.
