In addition to having a default fingerprint scanner, the Samsung Portable T7 Touch has password protection and 256-bit AES hardware encryption. Security protection is very plural of this kind of device.

The portable SSD comes with a slim, black or silver titanium metal wrapper and can hold data up to 2TB. The T7 Touch also has a Motion LED so users can see the status of the device quickly.
The Samsung Portable SSD T7 Touch offers much greater speed than its predecessor, T5, which is consistently equivalent when compared to some of the best portable SSDs. The T7 Touch has a read speed of 1,050 MB / s and a write speed of 1,000 MB / s, making it almost twice as fast as the T5.
