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 1050MB/s and a write speed of 1000MB/s—significantly faster than its predecessor, the T5.
Samsung also says the drive is compatible with macOS, Windows, and Android, and that it offers "password-protected AES 256-bit hardware data encryption." The company doesn't specifically name iPadOS support, but we wouldn't be surprised to see it. The T7 would probably work with game consoles and other OSes, too; the password locking (which is optional) is probably what requires the supported OSes.
