A wide range of capacity options, including 250GB, 500GB and 1TB with new 2TB variant was offered by SSD.

The Portable SSD T3 is available for Rs.74,999 [$ 1114.49] for 2TB variant, Rs.37,999 [$ 564.67] for 1TB, Rs.18,999 [$282.32] for 500GB and Rs.10,999 [$163.45] for 250GB variant which is available from March 21 at retail stores as well as leading online stores, including Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal.

The vice-president of Samsung India Electronics, Sukesh Jain said in a statement that the multiple devices like PCs, smartphones and tablets are accessible with high-speed, reliable and secure storage which are in need for the consumers, content creators, and business professionals as the digital content is on the rise.

“He also added, without compromising on storage capacity, style and security, we will set new benchmarks with the new Portable SSD T3. With the success of Portable SSD T1 launched in 2015 in redefining and revolutionizing the external storage market Samsung leads the way.

[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]E[/dropcap]quipped with Samsung’s proprietary Vertical NAND (V-NAND) and SSD TurboWrite technology, the T3 drive provides advanced performance enabling consumers to quickly store and transfer large content across a variety of devices, including laptops, desktops (working on Windows 7 or higher), TVs and android smarphones and tablets (Kitkat 4.4 or higher).

“With Samsung’s V-NAND technology, the company managed to write and store data in multiple layers. This enabled less interference and more endurance that eventually helped us reduce the size of the hardware,” Jain told IANS.

“The SSD T3 has blazing-fast reading and writing speeds of up to 450MB per second with a USB 3.0 super speed interface – which is up to 4X faster than external HDDs.

The responsiveness is as fast as internal SSD with random read/write speed up to 240X faster than external HDD (Hard Disk Drive).

In Samsung SSD the metal body hardware has AES-256 bit hardware encryption allowing users to easily manage password settings on the move, making it among the safest devices in the world and safe from unwanted access.

With no moving parts, the drive is designed for portability and can withstand bumps and drops that are majorly responsible for lost or corrupted data.

The internal frame offers shock resistance of up to 1,500G and resistance up to two meter drop test. It has a thermal guard, which efficiently manages workload to prevent overheating.

“The portable SSD T3 is a slim and compact designed hardware -equal to the size of an average business card holder. It weighs about 51 grams and comes with 74x58x10.5mm dimensions.

The hardware features a USB 3.1 Type C connection that also enables it to connect to large-screen devices such as televisions.

Unfortunately this gadget is not waterproof.

On a question about their future plans after this launch, Jain said “This is a new category and is in developmental phase. Our motive is to expand this category.”
