Following the release of Samsung’s T7 Touch portable SSD in January, the T7 is now available. Samsung T7 combines sleek, compact design with the fastest transfer speeds currently available based on the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. The business card-sized portable SSD can be slipped into nearly any pocket and holds up to 2TB of data.
Samsung T7 is the perfect everyday storage companion for those looking to save video and photo content from a variety of USB-compatible devices. The T7 saves time with incredibly fast transfer speeds, and gives users peace of mind with data security features.
The T7 offers a significant speed upgrade over previous storage solutions. With a read speed of 1,050MB/s and a write speed of 1,000MB/s1, it is approximately twice as fast as its predecessor, the T5, and up to 9.5 times faster than external hard disk drives2. Moreover, the device can reach its maximum speed when used with the NVMe interface. With these speeds, Samsung T7 can help improve daily workflow and save valuable time for digital creative professionals.
To ensure reliable connectivity with any compatible device, the drive comes with a USB Type-C-to-C cable and a USB Type-C-to-A cable, and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Android operating systems. Security is also included with password-protected AES 256-bit hardware data encryption.
The device features an upgrade from previous versions with a solid aluminum case that’s shock resistant from drops up to 2 meters. The T7 also includes a three-year limited warranty.
Samsung’s new T7 is available in three color options, including Metallic Red, Indigo Blue and Titan Grey. Available now at select retailers nationwide and Samsung.com starting at $109.99 for 500GB, $199.99 for 1TB, and $369.99 for 2TB.
 Performance may vary depending on host configuration. To reach maximum read/write speeds of up to 1,050/1,000 MB/s, respectively, the host device and connection cables must support USB 3.2 Gen 2 and the UASP mode must be enabled.
