Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sports USB 3.0 connector for faster transfers and charging


note-3-cover-orange-feature

The Galaxy Note 3 is the industry’s first mobile device that comes with a whopping 3GB of RAM (and lots of software features to make use of all that RAM). However, there’s another feature that might be the first on a mobile device that’s debuting with the Note 3 – a USB 3.0 micro B port for file transfers and charging.

It’s not a feature that’s been talked about much, but it offers multiple benefits. First, speed of file transfers with a USB 3.0-enabled PC will be faster, a welcome change from the slow speeds we’re used to on smartphones right now. The other benefit will be when charging – USB 3.0 provides up to 900mA output current, higher than the 500mA of USB 2.0, so you won’t have to worry about extremely slow charging when charging from your PC. In fact, there’s also a 1.5mA mode on USB 3.0, though that makes concurrent file transfers impossible, so it remains to be seen if there’s an option for both on the device or whether the 900mA mode is permanent.

Oh, and if you’re worried about losing that micro B USB 3.0 cable and having no way to charge or manage files on your device, don’t be. Similar to those backward-compatible USB 3.0 flash drives, the Note 3 will allow you to connect a standard microUSB cable as well, so Samsung has every base covered.

    I do hope it actually charges on a USB2.0, because many devices that use a USB3 charging cable by default do not charge on a USB2.
