There are some who chuckle at the Zenfone offerings, as I have read in some of the comments. I must add here that until actually using a Zenfone, there is nothing at all to snicker or chuckle at. The Zenfone is one of my biggest and happiest tech surprises of this past year. It is a superb phone, fast as lightning and lives up to any of the expectations any one could possibly have for their device. Correction - it EXCEEDS!!! My hat is tipped to Asus for creating such a superb device, and this, is from a former Samsung distributor!
Oh yes, it looks like micro-usb. And wait for se specs-price for laugh for a while.
"The frame looks to be metal and the oval shape of the port almost certainly indicates Type-C."
It looks like normal mini usb 2.0 and for sure not type-c. For type-c there should be seen the plastic line that is in center. On these pics you cant see and the shape of it is still old micro usb
