The pet features a USB-C interface and is not much different in size from the ubiquitous 16GB or 32GB USB sticks that we see for the only difference, even in its capacity that surpasses or matches most computers today. It is good to remember that there is a Kingston competitor who has already surpassed this mark about a year ago, but compared to the SanDisk prototype, he is a brick without elegance.

There is still no prediction as to the availability of the new SanDisk creation, but considering that the prototype was working perfectly in the presentation, it should not be long before it comes to market. However, prepare your wallets, because it won't be cheap
