Sandisk launches world’s smallest 1TB USB Type-C flash drive at CES 2018

Western Digital-owned Sandisk has announced what can be called as the world’s smallest 1TB USB Type-C flash drive at CES 2018. The firm has also launched the smallest 256GB USB flash drive at the conference.

Sandisk’s smallest 1TB flash drive is for now in the ‘prototype’ stages and may take a while to hit the mass market. It is, however, not the flash drive with the most storage as Kingston last year already came with 2TB storage flash drive.

Sandisk has not yet revealed the price or the availability details of the device. Since the smallest 1TV flash drive supports USB Type-C, users will simply be able to transfer data to smartphones in addition to PCs and laptops.

Also, the company has launched the world’s smallest 256GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive measuring 19.1 x 15.9 x 8.8mm. The particular flash drive also comes in different storage capacities.

“Continuing its legacy of technology milestones, Western Digital offers a preview of the future of flash storage, demonstrating the world’s smallest 1TB* USB device, a powerful USB Type-C flash solution capable of preserving an enormous amount of content in one tiny form factor; and the world’s smallest 256GB* USB flash drive,” said the firm.

The SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive series support 130MB/s read speed and write speeds of up to 15x faster than standard USB 2.0 drives. It also has SanDisk SecureAccess software to keep content secure and is compatible with any USB 3.0 or 2.0 port.

The drive is available in 256GB, 128GB, 64GB, 32GB and 16GB storage capacities. Sequentially, the prices of the flash drives are $149.99, $119.99, $59.99, $34.99 and $21.99.

 Two portable SSDs have also been launched. The first one comes from Western Digital, the second one comes from SanDisk. These are aimed for photographers and drone enthusiasts.
