Post [Q] Different USB cables?

I've seen a lot of videos and reviews so far, and some of they show 3.0 USB cables in the package, while others show 2.0 ones.

Do you guys know why? Shouldn't them all come with 3.0? LOL

It appears as though the international models get the USB2 cables, while the US models get the USB3 cables. At least, that's what I've gathered so far. Either way, it doesn't make any sense why they wouldn't just include a USB3 cable across all models lol

This annoyed me, I admit. What's the point in providing a USB 3.0 device but only supply a cable which renders it to be used as USB 2.0? Luckily I have a couple of USB 3.0 disks so had a cable to use but still a stupid decision from Samsung.
