Samsung's Galaxy S7 Will Have A USB Type-C Port According to Rumors

Samsung's flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone is still famous and marketable, but talks pertaining to its successor the Galaxy S7 are already gaining traction.
The latest buzz suggests that the next-gen Galaxy S7 phablet will be taking things in a different direction and could well be sporting a USB Type-C port instead of the current microUSB one.
The new information comes courtesy of SamMobile which cites reliable sources.
"It might not come as a surprise to some, but our sources have confirmed that the Galaxy S7 will come with a USB Type-C port instead of a standard microUSB port," reveals the publication.
The USB Type-C port is being touted as the next big thing for smartphones as it uses a reversible cable, which can be plugged into any device in any manner. Another advantage of this connector if that it speeds up the charging of a mobile device in tandem with USB 3.1. Moreover, the USB Type-C connector also aids smoother and quicker transfer of data when compared to a USB 3.0.
Several new devices such as the Nexus 5X, as we reported, are said to be shipping with the USB Type-C connector. The new Dell tablets i.e. the Venue 8 Pro and Venue 10 Pro will also come with the new USB standard when they hit the shelves in mid-November.
Even the eagerly-awaited OnePlus 2 smartphone from OnePlus, like its predecessor, will be adopting the USB Type-C port.
It would follow the logic that Samsung also embraces the USB Type-C port for its future smartphones to stay relevant. Therefore, the news that the Galaxy S7 will have the USB Type-C port is not surprising.
Rumors have also been rife that the Galaxy S7 could take a leaf out of Apple's book and have ClearForce technology to take on 3D Touch. The smartphone is also anticipated to sport a 5.7-inch QHD screen and a magnesium alloy body.
Rumors also point to a 16 MP primary and 5 MP selfie camera for the smartphone which will boast 4 GB of RAM. The smartphone could house the Snapdragon 820 processor, Exynos M1 chip or the Exynos 7422 chipset depending on the region it is headed.
