Samsung recently unveiled the upgraded version of the T7 USB-C SSD with a rugged design and solid durability. The tech giant has been pushing its storage devices more recently as seen with the announcement of the UFS 4.0 this week. The new T7 series SSD boasts storage space of up to 2TB to keep your data secure, and at the same time offers durability that can handle dust, drops, and water to some level.
Samsung T7 Shield SSD Specifications
As far as durability is concerned, this rugged USB-C SSD from Samsung comes with IP65 water and resistance features making it travel-friendly. On top of that, it features a non-slippery external rubber coating that prevents heavy scuffs and scratches. Samsung also claims that the rubber coating included in this USB-C SSD can help maintain top-notch performance ensuring the transfer of up to 2TB of data without triggering the Dynamic Thermal Guard feature.
