Use the USB C Cable on Galaxy S8 & S8+

Let us introduce you to the USB C. The days of accidentally connecting the charger incorrectly into your charging port are a thing of the past. The new USB C cable can be inserted either way, so you can't go wrong.

Use only charging devices and batteries approved by Samsung. Samsung accessories are designed for your device to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may invalidate your warranty and may cause damage.

Connect the USB C Cable

Maybe you want to back up videos you made for your YouTube channel to your computer. Learn how to connect the USB C cable.

  1. To connect your mobile device to an external device, insert the USB C cable into the USB C port on your mobile device.

  2. Connect the other end of the cable into the USB port on the external device.
