SanDisk announces high-speed dual flash drive for smartphones with USB Type-C port
Earlier today, at Computex 2016, a new SanDisk dual-sided USB flash drive with read speeds of up to 150MB/s was unveiled. The thumb drive features a reversible USB Type-C connector and a traditional USB Type-A connector for easy file transfers between smartphones, tablets and computers.
The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Type-C Flash Drive is available in 4 capacities – 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The variety of storage options, combined with the USB 3.1 read and write speeds, should make the thumb drive a perfect choice for people looking for a quick way to transfer files from their PCs to their mobile Type-C devices and vice versa, when there situation doesn't allow for direct connectivity between devices.
