Western Digital might be best known for its mechanical hard drives, but the company has not ignored the solid state drive movement. What's more, the new SanDisk prototype flash drive also comes with a USB Type-C port, which obviously comes with a significant speed advantage over the USB 3.0 port.

SanDisk showed a working prototype of the flash drive at CES this week but no other details were revealed, however. This makes copying and transferring larger files from Android to flash drive less of a hassle, as the SanDisk 1 TB drive can directly connect to the USB-C port on an Android smartphone.

At today's Consumer Electronics Show 2018 (CES 2018), Western Digital unveiled new and breakthrough consumer solutions that address today's personal content explosion, including voice-activated media streaming via popular Smart Home devices, the world's smallest 1TB USB flash drive and a portfolio of ultra-mobile, high-performance, wireless and high-capacity flash storage products. Many flash devices manufacturers have introduced data storage devices with larger space and small sizes, while this gadget by SanDisk breaks the record.

Sandisk's Extreme Portable SSD is a pocket-sized device, using USB-C connectivity for data transfers. What is amply clear though is that all the convenience that the ultra-small flash drive stands for will also come for a price. It's a USB 3.1 Gen 1 drive with read speeds of up to 130MB/s. The drive is available in 256GB, 128GB, 64GB, 32GB and 16GB storage capacities. The full-sized 1TB USB-C SSD already has the price tag of $350, which suggests that smaller model will be expensive when it reaches the markets. "From the parent filming a school recital on their smartphone to the drone enthusiast or pro photographer, our range of consumer solutions are created to help everyone preserve, access and share their digital world".
