New thinner USB can be used on both sides

The new connection will be from Type C and it is planned for next year. It will support USB 3.1 specification and be gradual with respect to data transfer and reloading. As a result, the tendency is for USB to be even more widely used, becoming a kind of universal connection with support for numerous handsets, as claimed by the "USB 3.0 Promoter Group". Check out our MicroUSB 3.0 test on Galaxy Note 3 here.

There is also a downside to this technology: the new connection will not be backwards compatible – without devices with the Type C input, an adapter will be required to make the connection.
