Portable SSDs have become quite popular lately but only a handful of them offer proper security so Samsung is taking matters into its own hands by introducing the T7 Touch with fingerprint reader identification. This way you can rest assured that your sensitive data is safe even if you misplace the actual drive.
The T7 Touch succeeds the T5 from last year by offering a capacitive fingerprint scanner and AES 256-bit hardware encryption and password for added security. Moreover, the T7 Touch boasts about 1 GB/s read and 1 GB/s read speeds, which is almost twice as fast as its predecessor.
Connectivity options include USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A while the connector of the device supports 10Gbps speeds over USB 3.2 (Gen 2).
The T7 Touch comes in three flavors – 500GB for $129, 1TB for $229 and 2TB for $399 with planned availability this month. The available paint jobs of the titanium case are black and silver and the whole thing weighs just 58 grams.
