The day is near when all new android phones will sport more than one USB port. USB ports are currently the way that most data transfers are made between computers and smart phones. Most mobile phone manufacturers have moved over to using micro-USB ports for data transfers. Unfortunately this port is typically connected to a port that also carries an audio port, video port, and an infrared port. This means that all data transfers from your device will need to use one port only.
Even with micro-USB ports there is still no universal specification on how these ports should connect to each other. Each manufacturer has its own proprietary method for connecting their devices to one another and to the computer. As a result, some devices will be able to use one port while others can only work with another one.
One of the most interesting features that will be introduced with more phones will be USB “thumb ports.”
These will be used for data transfers that require the user to insert their fingers into their phone’s dock connector tray. Just like micro-USB ports, these will only work with devices that use the same type of dock connector. When it comes to future devices that will sport more than one USB port, we will likely see several new accessories that feature these new standard ports.
We have already seen how USB ports have improved over the last few years. Manufacturers are now designing phones with ports that are smaller and simpler. We may soon see further changes to how data is transferred when using these new phones and accessories. Some manufacturers such as Samsung are already hinting that in the future we will see more than just one USB port on their new devices.
While it’s great that companies are moving away from using micro-USB ports in their newer phones and accessories, it may not be a bad idea to bring the concept of portable porting to the next level.
After all, it would make no sense to use one type of port on your phone or device and another on your laptop. After all, wouldn’t it be much easier to transfer files between devices in the future? It certainly would be much faster, especially if you need to transfer a large amount of data.
In the future, we are likely to see many more accessories that will feature two or more ports. For instance, there may be one port for data and one port for power. Or, there may be a single port that can be used for data and another for power. Each manufacturer is sure to have something unique in the way of ports on their phones. It’s just a matter of personal preference, but it looks as though we may soon be seeing more phones that can support USB power delivery.
If a future device supports more than one USB port, then you can imagine the types of accessories that can be supported as well. Just imagine the possibilities! How about printers that can be hooked up to your computer or other device via USB! Maybe, even cell phone or tablet cameras that can charge via a USB port.
It’s clear to see that USB porting is here to stay. It’s likely to become the norm in future mobile devices.
I just know that it will be exciting when it becomes part of new devices. So, look for USB ports on new phones and tablets and I’m sure you’ll agree.
USB ports are also commonly referred to as “Universal Serial Bus” ports. As you might expect, this type of port is widely used in computers and other electronic devices. The USB also acts as a host to various other protocols including Bluetooth. This is why you can now easily connect your phone or tablet to the computer or your other devices without having to use a USB cable.
Since USB is such a popular standard, manufacturers are eager to use it in future devices. This is good news for us consumers because it means that we’ll eventually be able to take advantage of these new technologies. You can look forward to more portable and powerful devices, such as a tablet. A phone with a keyboard dock will be ideal. Also, you may soon be able to plug in your headphones, mouse, or game pad as well.
It’s clear that we’re going to see many more devices that feature one port and many more that feature too. While it may seem like USB is obsolete, it has already shown to be a great replacement for many years. If you haven’t used one before, you should give it a try. You’ll quickly find that this port is everywhere and will be very convenient for a wide variety of devices.
