Three years after their debut, Samsung’s T7 series SSDs are still well-reviewed, and the T7 Shield is presently our top pick among portable SSDs. However, speculations about a few online merchants hosting listings for Samsung T9 portable SSDs recently began to circulate. Although Samsung hasn’t shown a T9 SSD, they are probably the company’s successors to the venerable T7 family.
Currently, under the product number MU-PG2T0B, French vendor Grosbill has product pages for the 1TB and 2TB T9 versions. P12.fr and the Australian store Microboss both have listings similar to this. There are few details, but the new SSDs might make their debut as high-end goods.
Microboss removed a page that advertised a 2GB/s read/write speed, which is twice as fast as the T7 but costs significantly more. The costs listed on the Grosbill pages are roughly two times more than those on the T7 pages, despite the absence of technical specifications.
The price difference between the 2TB and 1TB Samsung T9 SSD models is €199 ($212 US) for the 2TB model and €124 ($132 US) for the 1TB T9.
The change might not be as indicative of flagship performance as it is of how much SSD prices have dropped in the past year. The Samsung T9 SSDs may be substantially more expensive than the T7, yet the quoted costs are still far less than the T7’s initial price.
In 2020, when Samsung first introduced the portable T7, it charged $200 for 1TB and $370 for 2TB. Prices dropped to $160 for 1TB and $290 for 2TB when the T7 Shield was introduced two years later, adding a protective rubber guard that can resist falls of almost 10 feet. Although the decline was severe, we have made great strides since then.
