Samsung first announced the new T7 Portable SSD in January at CES, but focused on releasing the more expensive T7 Touch with fingerprint sensor first. The T7 Portable SSD is similar to the T7 Touch, measuring in at the size of a business card.

The pocketable Samsung T7 SSD is made from a durable titanium metal case and is available in Metallic Red, Indigo Blue, and Titan Gray finishes. It is shock resistant and can withstand falls of up to two meters.

Why not buy the one with the fingerprint reader for $20 more?
What is the fingerprint reader good for? All my hard drives are always encrypted, and work as long as they're connected to my Mac and not a second longer.

I’d love to see at least a 4TB model. Otherwise I’ll just keep my older T5, which is still a fantastic drive in its own right.
