USB c can even support hunderbolt and its hubs, which opens up a lot of doors, so to speak. But not the Hi13. Hi13 specs states OTG support. Both ports. Both MicroUSB and TypeC.
I've even used a passive USB c adapter to connect a MicroUSB OTG adapter to connect a USB3 flashstick at USB2 speeds at TypeC port. For USB3 speeds you need a better OTG adapter or dongle. See essentials thread and its specialized thread if there is one. My 2ct.
Edit: there are dongles that are supported according to Emily, they work both for charging and audio and/or video/Ethernet, full USB port(s). The 7in1 they had it all hasn't been confirmed working yet.
Not sure about all of the review sources. OTG has been demonstrated working at USB3 speeds.
I don't think I even have the supplies cable anymore. It's just lost in my stuff. So if you meant connecting to a laptop, the power negotiating unit functional or not, seems the Hi13 can always count on 5volts, so perhaps connection for data to a computer might still at that point still work? I've not tried it with mine which still has the negotiating chip intact.
TypeC is supposed to work host-to-host TypeC to TypeC as well. Never got that thread further because wasn't a focus.
