Nexus and Nexus 6 p 5 x: USB Type-C

During a session AMA on our site, the Nexus development team has confirmed that the USB port Type-C supports USB 2.0

One of the innovations that have been incorporated in the new Nexus relates to the connector. We are indeed passed from micro USB to USB Type-C which allows greater flexibility, carries audio, video and data into a single connector and is also reversible. Overall, a nice connector that gradually will become standard.

Unfortunately, many have associated USB Type-C to USB 3.0 (refer to and in fact this is not an error since one of the features of the type C is just having a higher data transfer rate and in line with the USB 3.0. Unfortunately not all Type-C are actually 3.0 and there are doors that take advantage of all these features but still maintain the standard 2.0 when it comes to data transfer rate. One such example is OnePlus 2 that has USB 2.0 Typc-C as speed.

Checking on the site Huawei official, here comes the confirmation:

  • Ac/WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • 2 Bluetooth
  • USB 2.0 high speed
  • Reversible USB Type-C ™ for faster charging & quicker data transfer

Basically confirms the connector type and speed type of USB though is written genericallyquicker data transfer.

Besides this confirm, on the network as well as other sites in the industry have expressed concern about USB 3.0 and analyzing well the connector looks like it’s really confirmed the speed 2.0 though will be without evidence to confirm or deny. Speaking of Nexus 6 pobviously confirms the same thing for Nexus 5 x since it would be absurd to think that the model would be better than the top range.

  • Huawei Nexus 6 pis available online from ePRICE at 517 euros. The price isdecent but there are few better models.
  • LG Nexus 5 xis available online from Carpentry to 209 euro or from ePRICE to303 euros. The value for money is good. There are 10 best models.
