Type C USB might be a hot feature on laptops but Sony's holding off on adding it to its phones.
The reason? The company is focusing on thinner and lighter phones; the way forward is to optimise display and camera modules, not so much tinker with a new USB port.
Xperia fans will probably be disappointed but we can see where Sony is coming from. It is, after all, not a make-or-break feature for most buyers right now. Sexy still sells smartphones after all and Sony currently needs all the sexy it can get.
