The mighty Samsung unveiled series of branded, sophisticated USB Flash Drives (UFD) that come in 3 different versions. Each is having a certain group of people to captivate. The flash drives are fully equipped with robust Samsung NAND flash technology and very compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 drives.
They come with:-
- Samsung’s robust NAND flash and equipped with Samsung’s 5-proof technologies
- Available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage capacities.
- USB drives come in three types ; Bar type, FIT type and DUO type.
Bar type: offers a modern classy look with a light champagne colored, high-quality metal casing for added durability, and a streamlined spherical end for ergonomic experiences, which allow users to easily insert and extract the drive from devices and can double as a subtle key ring to help prevent loss. Measuring 40mm long and weighing under 9 grams, the drive is specifically designed for use in PC devices and is available in three capacities, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The drive offers sequential read speed of up to 130MB/s, allowing users to download a 2.4GB full HD video or approximately 40 hours of mp3 music from the UFD to their device in less than 20seconds.
FIT type: is the most compact of Samsung’s new UFD lineups. It is designed for use in ultra-slim notebooks or in automobiles equipped with USB ports for data or music storage. The drive allows great portability and maintains streamlined edges of devices while providing an easy grip for removal. The FIT drive is less than 20mm long and weighs just over 2.0 grams and also offers sequential read speed of up to 130MB/s in both 32GB and 64GB capacities.
DUO type: is specifically designed for smartphone, tablet and PC users on the go who require added flexibility of an all-in-one solution for standard and micro USB ports. The DUO comes with a convenient attached cap that protects the micro USB. The drive provides sequential read speed of up to 130 MB/s and is compatible with Android devices with a micro USB 2.0 interface. The DUO drive is available in 32GB and 64GB capacities and is less than 37mm long and weighs less than 6 grams.
The Samsung 5-Proof technology guarantees each drive to withstand up to 72 hours in seawater and survive operating temperatures from -0°C to 60°C (32°F to 140°F). Data stored on the drives will not be affected by standard airport X-ray machines or extreme levels of shock up to 1,500g (gravitational force), and can resist up to 15,000 gauss magnetic force, which is the equivalent of a high-field MRI scanner.
“Launching the premium UFDs will provide a full lineup of external storage products that can be used with confidence for all our global customers.” said, Un-Soo Kim, Senior Vice President of Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our customers now have a quality, one-stop-shop for all their memory needs.”
