So far, we’ve seen plenty of interesting product and technology announcements at CES 2018. That said, there is one product that arguably stands out above the rest – so far – for the “innovation” that it brings. The product in question is the world’s smallest 1TB USB Type-C flash drive from SanDisk.
Normally, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a flash drive that comes with, say, 64GB / 128GB of storage and etc; but cramming 1TB into a small form factor storage device is indeed something else. Folks at SanDisk have apparently showcased the working prototype of this unnamed flash drive at CES 2018. It has to be said, however, that the world’s highest capacity flash drive still belongs to Kingston with its 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT.
That said, when it comes to dimensions, the SanDisk flash drive is indeed much smaller compared Kingston’s. What makes this flash drive even more interesting is the fact that it can also be paired with USB Type-C Android devices for extra storage. Of course, it is compatible with notebooks and PCs that have a USB Type-C port as well.
Unfortunately, key details such as release date, it’s actual name, and most importantly, pricing was not mentioned by SanDisk. Despite this, it’s safe to assume that the 1TB flash drive from SanDisk will most definitely come with a rather hefty price tag.
