A key feature of the Samsung's 2016 flagship smartphone, Galaxy S7, has surfaced online.

Samsung community blog, SamMobile citing company insiders has revealed Galaxy S7 will boast new age USB Type port.

Key aspect of Type C USB connector is that users need not even worry about orienting the port while plugging the device as its works reverse as well.

Rivals OnePlus 2, Google's newly launched LG Nexus 5X and Huawei made Nexus 6P already boast this feature. So it is not a surprise for many to believe Galaxy S7 will feature the same hardware. It is believed that the USB Type-C port will be an industry standard next year. All devices coming in 2016 will have this output/input port.

In a related development, Samsung has joined hands with Synaptics to develop 'ClearForce' solution, similar to Apple iPhone 6S series' 3D Touch for Galaxy S7.

However, the new ClearForce technology is said to accomplish more functions than the 3D touch feature.
