CES 2020: Samsung Launches Portable SSD T7 Touch With Fingerprint Sensor, Arrives Next Month in India:

Samsung has launched the Portable SSD T7 Touch at CES 2020. The successor to Samsung’s T5 portable SSD, the Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch is claimed to be at least twice as fast as its predecessor. But the major draw of the Portable SSD T7 Touch is enhanced security, as the new storage device comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor for authentication. The Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch retains the compact form factor and metallic build, and is all set to hit the shelves next month in multiple markets, including India.

Talking about specifications, the Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch is claimed to deliver read and write speeds of 1,050MBps and 1,000MBps respectively. This is a significant speed boost compared to the promised 540MBps transfer speed offered by its predecessor, the Samsung Portable SSD T5 (Review). However, Samsung notes that its latest offering can reach peak performance when used with an NVMe interface. It follows the USB 3.2 (Gen 2) standard and is backwards compatible.
