Here’s a quick look at the latest Type-C USB cables. The Type-C port and connector is about the same size as that of the micro USB. The Type-C port measure just 8.4mm by 2.6mm. Both ends are the same, allowing for reversible orientation. There is also no longer a right-side-up… it just fits. The Type-C USB will support USB 3.1 with a top speed of 10Gbps and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB3.0.
