There are benefits to this new connection. Being reversible is obviously one of the most obvious. On phones such as these, the connector also provides support for high-speed chaging and data transfer.
The other side of this equation though is the need for spare USB Type-C cables. New docking stations might be needed too!
When the XZ and X Compact were announced earlier this year, the DK60 charging dock was also unveiled.
Frustratingly for some, it has still not yet launched! However, for those still looking or yet to buy the new Xperia devices, the wait is almost over.
The USB Type-C charging dock will be coming into stock in February. The RRP is £39.99 including VAT and available from Clove here.
As an official Sony accessory, the dock will include adapters for a multitude of handsets.
