@PINE64 Is there any chance that future devices could have Thunderbolt over the Type-C connectors? That could be a very interesting feature and could be useful.
@gudenau Not without an Intel Chipset that is too large for Smartphones. Wait for USB4.
@bionade24 I don't think they are that large though?
They appear to be a touch over 10mmx10mm.
@gudenau Minimal larger. But I wouldn't consider that as small. They're nearly as big as the ARM Processor.
@bionade24 I mean, make the phone a touch thicker and you can take a little more room for the PCB because the battery can be larger.
Though this would be far more useful for tables and laptops.
My three goals for the future is getting a pinephone with convergence kit, a pinetab with a keyboard and survive the pandemic. At least I got one of them going for me.
