What is the use of Type-C interface? In addition to fast charging, it has these

1.     Both sides can be inserted

Do you always know this? The Type-C interface can be plugged on both sides, making charging and plugging easier. This is indeed the most intuitive change brought by Type-C, but in fact this is only the smallest change it brought.

2.     Strong power supply

About mobile phone charging. It is not difficult to find that currently mobile phones that support fast charging basically use the Type-C data interface. The reason is that it can provide up to 100W of power output, and can achieve bidirectional power supply through the Type-C interface, which can not only charge the device itself, but also power external devices.

3.     Fast transmission speed

The advantage of Type-C interface is to support USB 3.0 and above standards. At present, most    mobile phones that support USB 3.0 and above are relatively high-end, such as Huawei P30 Pro (5488),  OnePlus 7 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy S / Note series. It should be noted that even if the mobile phone supports USB 3.1, the original data cable of the mobile phone may not necessarily support it.

If your mobile phone is the above models, but the transmission speed is still not very fast, you may  wish to check whether the corresponding interface is still 2.0, and whether the data cable does not  support it.

4.     Better scalability

Type-C interface can transmit audio and video signals, expand to various audio and video output interfaces, such as HDMI, DVI, VGA interface, and even achieve the expansion of 4K resolution.

5.     Can transmit analog signals

Eliminating the 3.5mm headphone jack has become one of the main trends in the development of smart phones. The Type-C interface has gradually become the interface for wired headphones. In fact, the Type-C interface and the 3.5mm headphone jack also have some things in common. The former can also transmit audio of analog signals. However, the output of analog signals is very susceptible to interference, and more and more manufacturers are choosing digital audio output. This is where the Type-C interface is relatively weak, but basic use is still possible, so you don't need to expect too high transmission quality.


Did n’t expect the Type-C interface to have so many functions? In fact, with the advancement of     technology, the mobile phone interface is constantly changing. The current mainstream interface is Type-C, which has made great progress on the basis of USB2.0. Perhaps a new generation of interface is also being developed, but at least a few years We basically use this interface, and it can also meet our current basic needs.
