South Korea's three cellular operators have agreed on the specifications of a sync and charge port which will be required for all phones sold in the country. Traditionally manufacturers and carriers believe that unique ports create additional accessory sales. However Korean carriers have decided that by standardizing the port, new goods and services could be developed by carriers and third parties which would actually increase accessory sales as well as service subscriptions.

It is not known whether models that come to the US will feature this new connector or traditional unique connectors.
