Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch

 

Samsung has announced the release of its latest external storage device - the Portable Solid State Drive (SSD) T7 Touch.


The Portable Solid State Drive (SSD) T7 Touch combines a compact design (weighing only 58 grams) with the fastest transfer speeds currently available based on the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. The new device also has a built-in fingerprint sensor for added security.

Designed for both professional and casual users, Samsung's T7 Touch provides enough capacity to securely store large numbers of pictures, games or 4K/8K videos whether on a PC, tablet, smartphone or game console. The device also offers a significant speed upgrade over previous storage solutions. With a read speed of 1,050MB/s and a write speed of 1,000MB/s, it is approximately twice as fast as its predecessor, the Portable SSD T5, and up to 9.5 times faster than external HDDs (the device can reach its maximum speed when used with the NVMe interface).

For an added layer of security, the T7 Touch brings the first built-in fingerprint scanner to an SSD on top of password protection and AES 256-bit hardware encryption. It also features a 'Motion LED', which allows the user to determine the status of the device.

The innovative nature of Samsung's T7 Touch has been recognised at the CES 2020 Innovation Awards.
