ON THE MOVE At a featherweight 58g and minuscule 85x57x8mm, the Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch is well at home in any on-the-go set-up. And with PC, Mac and Android compatibility via USB Type C to C and Type C to A, what you pair it with is completely up to you

Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch is a highly compact device. The extent of it, though, pleased Janes all the same. “One of the first things I noticed was its aesthetic design.
