Samsung's new portable external drives offer up to 1 terabyte (TB) capacity in a compact format with curved sides for a comfortable grip and sleek styling. Their wave-like matte finish hides scratches and fingerprints. The new portable drive will be available in four colors; Brown black, Noble beige, Clay orange and Mist gray.
Samsung's portable drives also offer up to 1TB capacity, but add enhanced backup and security software, as well as elegant, high-gloss cases embedded with a multi-layered wave pattern in three jewel-tone colors; Onyx black, Sapphire blue and Coral pink. The newly implemented 256-bit Full Disk Encryption provides additional security on a hardware basis. Auto backup software supports both automatic and continuous data backup, so that users' files are backed up automatically every time they are changed or newly created. SecretZone allows users to create a secure virtual drive, and SafetyKey software provides encrypted data backup and password-setting. A USB docking station will be sold separately for both the basic and premium line products, allowing users to connect and transfer data to a PC.
Samsung's new external drives for desktop PCs offer up to 2TB capacity in simple and refined cases, which take their design cues from the portable drive family. Rounded corners give them a slimmer form factor for reduced desktop space, while LED lights at the bottom of the drives indicate their operation status. With 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB storage capacities, the new desktop drives will be available in Brown black and Noble beige.
All three new external storage lines will be available through U.S. retailers in April, with pricing to be announced at that time.
