Intel urge to get rid of 3.5 mm connectors

Now, Intel company has proposed to get rid of the 3.5-mm connectors and instead use USB Type-C. If the majority of device manufacturers agree with this idea, the transition will be relatively easy, and it has a decent number of reasons.

Last week LeEco introduced three new of Android-smartphone, which received one interesting thing in common – none of them received a 3.5-mm headset jack. Instead, they use USB Type-C connector for audio playback through the headset. And now Intel decided to become another company that wants to kill the 3.5-mm connector.

Now, Intel company has proposed to get rid of the 3.5-mm connectors and instead use USB Type-C. If the majority of device manufacturers agree with this idea, the transition will be relatively easy, and it has a decent number of reasons.

Firstly, an analog connector performs only a couple of features, chief among which is the use of audiogarnitury. This limits the space devices, especially considering that smartphones are becoming thinner, and devices need more space for the battery.

Also, when using USB port Type-C, it may be wiser to allow headphones, for example, monitor health data, such as temperature. Manufacturers set can create their own individual digital-to-analog converters, and this may lead to a better sound quality no matter what kind of device the user is connected.

Intel’s intentions are well founded, but only time will tell if the company manages to achieve a response from other manufacturers.
