Samsung has announced availability of its T7 external USB-C solid-state hard drive , starting at $110. Like the previous drives in this line, it's business-card-sized (except in thickness) and relatively fast.
The T7 is available in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB configurations, and it's also available in three colors: red, blue, and gray. Packaged inside is a USB-C-to-USB-A cable, so it should be simple enough to connect to legacy ports. It also comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable for users of modern Ultrabooks, MacBooks, and the like. The drive uses the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard.
What's exciting here is that Samsung claims this drive can achieve a read speed of 1,050MB/s and a write speed of 1,000MB/s—significantly faster than its predecessor, the T5.
