It seems Samsung is wanting to be the first in the marketplace to bring a new micro-USB connector/charger which is said to bring the ability to draw 900 milliamps of current when connected to a computer versus 500 milliamps today, essentially charging the device more quickly and efficiently whilst being able to “potentially” offer far faster data rates, potentially increasing the speed of transferring music, videos, and photos to and from your phone according to The Verge.
Ausdroid has contacted Samsung for comment, but we haven’t heard anything yet.
This measure could be a double edged sword; like Apple’s iPhone 5 which featured a new lightning power adapter which was incompatible with all previous iOS hardware, but it did offer faster charging and faster throughout to the device when syncing.
We shall await to see what the company states about the new connector/dock/charger and whether or not the connector lives up to its ability for far faster data rates with the new Galaxy Note III.
What do you think of the new micro-USB connector? Do you think Samsung has gone in the right direction or do you think they should have stuck with the current micro-USB connectors?
