Samsung has upgraded its external T3 SSD with the new T5 portable SSD. The T5 takes advantage of Samsung’s 64-layer V-NAND technology that enables faster transfer speeds and encryption in a compact design, which is smaller than an average business card at 74×57.3×10.5mm and weighs just 51g.
The storage starts from 250GB and goes up to 2TB and boasts a transfer speed of up to 540MB/s, which in comparison to an external HDD is 4.9 times faster.
Furthermore, T5 can withstand accidental drops of up to 2 meters, supports AES 256-bit hardware data encryption and Android app support. The drive also comes with two connection cables – USB-C to C and USB-C to A for better compatibility.
The T5 starts from $129.99 for 250GB and comes in Deep Black (1TB and 2TB models) and Alluring Blue (250GB and 500GB models) finishes.
