Samsung Portable T9 SSD spotted online, could launch soon


Samsung is all set to bring back their portable SSD lineup to the market, the Portable T9 SSD. This comes as a much anticipated announcement since the T7 SSD made its debut three years ago and offered the best performance with the fast sharing of large files in seconds through USB 3.2 Gen 2. Given that the inbuilt PCIe® NVMeTM technology enabled sequential read/write speeds up to 1,050 and 1,000 MB/s, respectively, With this functionality, the T7 Touch is nearly twice as quick as the T5.

The T7 family has been added with the T7 touch and T7 shield, and the firm intends to bring in hardware enhancements to the portable SSDs. The Samsung Portable T9 SSD, as a successor to the T7 SSD, has been listed under the product number MU-PG2T0B in a summary list of T9 SSDs used by retailers like PC12.fr and Grosbill Pro. A reliable source, Techradar Pro, discovered that several online stores are offering a 2TB version of the Samsung T9 SSD prior to the usual Black Friday discounts in November. However, the sale isn’t confirmed and might begin anytime soon. The firm officially didn’t confirm the launch date; the expected advanced sale may begin on November 24 (Black Friday).

An Australian retailer named Microboss had a version listed, but it isn’t available now as it was removed later. Other than the 2 TB storage size, no other technical aspect has been confirmed yet, but Microboss claims that it has read and write rates of up to 2 GB/s. The storage may also reach up to 4 TB, just like the T7 shield. If this turns out to be true, then the upcoming SSD will perform much faster than its predecessor. It was reported that it may arrive with a lower price range compared to its predecessor, with PC12.fr selling the T9 SSD for €236.52 (about $250) and Gosbill Pro selling the product for around €199 (approximately $215).

Samsung T7 SSD:

  • Size: 500 GB, 1 TB, 2 TB
  • Price: $110 (500 GB), $200 (1 TB), $370 (2 TB)

Probably the business will integrate Thunderbolt 4 into the forthcoming T9 SSD, as it was considered a standard to include it in some of the fastest SSDs.
