You'll have to wait awhile before Sony adds Type C USB to phones

Sony's waiting for the format to gain more traction before it commits

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.
