Moments after Lexar announced the first ever 1TB SD-Card, SanDisk has also decided to showcase its own mega flash drive
Yes! The flash drive is indeed mega, I mean four times bigger than that of Lexar’s 1TB SD-card. The 2019 CES event has most of the electronic brands coming forth with amazing technologies, and SanDisk is not left out in the matter.
SanDisk has been able to work a 4TB storage memory into a flash drive that is so small that it can be moved around with you inside your pocket. With this kind of technology in place, you won’t have to bother yourself with paid cloud storages, especially in this era of e-storage. Also, you can easily go about with the biggest files, not having to carry your computers, neither hard drives.
The Western Digital subsidiary, SanDisk, showcased the new device prototype today; a 4TB thumb drive featuring a USB Type-C interface. It’s being billed as the world’s highest capacity USB drive although technically, it’s more of a tiny SSD considering the Type-C connector is attached to a small wire, that’s beside the point.
Unfortunately, apart from the few listed detail, there is basically nothing else to talk about the flash drive. SanDisk has refused to share hardware specifications, likewise potential pricing/launch information. Truth be told, however, the product will probably never make it to market, at least not in this year. The digital tech company did something similar at last year CES; showcasing a 1TB USB-C drive that never arrives at the market. Well, maybe another brand like Lexar will be smart enough to surprise us with a similar device if SanDisk fails to deliver much sooner than later.
On second thought, if the drive manages to reach the market, it’d be so expensive, considering that the 2TB drive currently sells for $1,200. Hence, be sure that it won’t be coming any cheaper.
