This means they can quickly connect to a TV and display the phone’s screen, copy files from a flash drive or SD-Card, and connect to an Ethernet cable.
Only the new Type-C smartphones can do this such as the Galaxy S8 and S9.
The new Type-C port was created to be an all-in-one slot that can transmit video, sound, or files.
It is set to replace the older USB standard, HDMI, and Ethernet as a single plug.
One problem is most devices still use older ports such as a TV with HDMI or a Flash Drive with USB.
1 USB Type-C female charging port
3 USB 3.0 Type-A port
1 HDMI Output port
1 SuperSpeed Gigabit Ethernet port
1 SD card slot
1 TF card slot
Video resolution (HD output port): Up to 4K UHD (3840×2160 @ 30Hz)
Data transfer rate: Up to 5Gbps
Power: USB bus-powered
The video clarity was very good with no lag along with the sound playing very good from the TV.
Next, I plugged in an Ethernet cable and did a Speed test which gave me 49Mbps Download and 5Mbps Upload.
While most will use WiFi this is a nice feature for those who like a fast wired internet connection.

Updated dodocool Type-C USB HUB Multi-port on Amazon
dodocool USB C Hub, 7 in 1 Type C Hub Adapter with 1Gbps Ethernet Port, VGA, 4K USB C to HDMI, 100W Power Delivery, 3 USB 3.0 Ports for MacBook/Air/Pro, Chromebook and More (Black)
Having a USB Type-C Hub with new smartphones is a very nice option with many possibilities.
Files can be easily copied or moved to a Flash Drive or SD Card.
The phone’s screen can display in HD 4K resolution onto a TV for videos or even a presentation.
A wired Ethernet cable can plug into the unit giving a phone fast internet in a bad WiFi zone.
There are several type-C USB Hubs available with the Dodocool unit simply the one I used.
I am still testing it out so far with very good results and will update if anything changes.
As always be sure to read the review on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
