A new Portable SSD T7 without a fingerprint scanner was confirmed
Samsung is preparing to release a new SSD T7 model that lacks a fingerprint scanner. An official product page for this new variant went live at Samsung Canada, and although pricing and release details are missing, the scannerless Portable SSD T7 is shown from all angles in numerous press renders.
The new model drops the ‘Touch’ moniker
Samsung’s original Portable SSD T7 Touch was released earlier this year with a fingerprint scanner built-in. But since the upcoming sensorless model lacks this security feature, it seems to be dropping the ‘Touch’ moniker. It’s simply listed as the Portable SSD T7 on the company’s Canadian portal.
Much like the original model, the Portable SSD T7 will be available in three storage configurations including 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. Other specs such as the USB 3.2 Gen.2 (10Gbps) interface and the shock-proof body appear to be unchanged. However, since it lacks a built-in fingerprint scanner, the Portable SSD T7 should technically be released for lower prices compared than the Touch model. The original fingerprint scanner-equipped variant with 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB of storage was launched for $129.99, $229.99, and $399.99, respectively.
The new Portable SSD T7 also introduces new, different color options. Instead of black and silver, the upcoming sensorless variant will be released in Titan Gray, Indigo Blue, and Metallic Red. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we learn more about pricing and availability.
