USB 3 support

Hello folks,

 

I am looking for a handy and compact Smartphone packed with awesome technology and it seems the Xperia XZ1 Compact would be the perfect choice for me. But as stated on several websites (not clearly on the official specification site though) this phone only supports USB 2.0 which is a huge bummer for me.

 

So my question is: Are there any plans for an update giving this phone USB 3.0 (or better 3.1) support? It would be really awesome if you ask me Slightly smiling Face

 

Best regards

 

Joe

Re: USB 3 support

@uliwooly But the Devolpment Profile of the XZ1 Compact also doesn't mention USB3 specifically

 

Connectivity:

 

  • A-GNSS (GPS + GLONASS)[5]
  • WiFi Miracast
  • Bluetooth® 5.0 wireless technology
  • DLNA Certified®
  • Google Cast
  • NFC
  • USB Type-C™

So I guess this phone really just has USB2.0 or am I wrong? If not will there be an update so the compact version of XZ1 will also have USB3?

Re: USB 3 support

So no chance of getting an update/a patch for this phone which enables USB3 support?

Re: USB 3 support

The XZ1 does support USB3 (Gen1) with the right cable (ie. the UCB30 Sony cable)
