USB Type-C cable from OnePlus will soon be available for $5

OnePlus USB Type-C

The OnePlus 2 comes with a USB Type-C port as we all are aware. The company has now announced that this accessory will soon be available through the company for about $5. USB Type-C cables are not available widely in the market given that they’re only starting to make their way to the mobile industry. But there will be quite a handful of devices in the market this year featuring the port.

Interestingly, the standard micro USB cable is sold for $9.99 by the company currently, so it’s quite a bold move to price the new cable at $5. The announcement was made by the company CEO during the launch event.

One of the key incentives of having a USB Type-C cable is that it can transfer data and charge the device at almost double the speed. Also, the cable and port are reversible, which means you can insert the cable any way you want and it would still fit in fine. This is quite similar to Apple’s Lightning cable and port which has been around for quite some time now.
