CES 2017: Portable wireless storage solution with 2TB SSD and optional LTE is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor
We’ve seen some pretty amazing products at CES 2017, including new QLED TVs and a bunch of laptops from Samsung. We’ve now come across a nifty little portable wireless storage solution for smartphones with up to 2TB of storage. The most interesting part of the gadget is that an Exynos processor powers it.
Unveiled at CES 2017, the Fasetto Link is a portable storage solution with a fast NVMe SSD from Samsung. It is driven by a 2.1GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 processor. This 2-inch wide accessory also packs in dual-band Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 (with LE) for connectivity as well as a USB Type-C port for data transfer and fast charging. It can be connected and controlled through a smartphone app.
The device can turn into a portable NAS, so it can also be used to stream media to connected smartphones or tablets. There’s an optional LTE module (that costs an additional $149) that can turn the Link into a portable hotspot. It is also an IP68-certified product, making it resistant to dust, shock, and water. The 256GB SSD variant costs $349, and the price goes as high as $1,149 for the 2TB storage variant.
The Fasetto Link is available for pre-order right now from the company’s website. It’s great to see that other brands are using Samsung’s Exynos processors in a variety of products ranging from smartphones, standalone VR headsets, and portable storage solutions.
