Samsung Launches A 2TB USB Type-C Portable SSD
Last year saw the release of Samsung's first portable solid state drive, the Portable SSD T1, which happened to appear in the Consumer Electronics Show last year. The South Korean tech giant, however, is keen to make a follow-up as it unveils a worthy successor this year. Meet the Samsung Portable SSD T3, a 2TB SSD that comes with 2TB of storage space, as well as the new USB Type-C standard, to deliver blistering fast read and write speeds.
The Samsung Portable SSD T3 features the company's venerable vertical NAND (V-NAND) memory, which enables the portable drive to deliver read and write speeds of up to 450MB/s. However, the new portable drive comes a bit heavier than its predecessor, but it's still compact enough to be carried around easily.
Not only does it come with much faster transfer speeds, the Portable SSD T3 also received a huge bump on the storage capacity. It will be available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB of storage options to provide more room for users who want the portable storage. Furthermore, the Portable SSD T3 features USB 3.1 and USB Type-C connections; it is also compatible with USB 2.0 ports for connecting to desktops, laptops, mobile devices and so forth.
For security, Samsung's latest offering features AES 256-bit hardware encryption with password protection for securing files of users. There's also a companion Android app that allows users to change the password, as well as see how much storage space their files have taken up straight from their mobile devices.
The Portable SSD T3 will be arriving in February in the Unites States, Europe, China and Korea, while other countries will see it on a later date. There are still no official announcements as to how much the portable drive would cost. But if the price of the Portable SSD T1 is any indication, it's estimated that it will come with a US$600 price tag or higher.
