SanDisk Corporation was founded 28 years ago, but in October 2015 was bought by Western Digital. Its key product lines include solid-state drives, enterprise software, embedded storage, memory cards, music players, USB Flash drives, and mobile storage. Its newest category is a dual Type-C USB, recently announced at COMPUTEX 2016 which kicked off on May 31 in Taipei.

The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Type-C Flash Drive will be available in four variants: 16GB ($19.99), 32GB ($29.99), 64GB ($39.99) and 128GB ($69.99). They’re positioned as the perfect solution for those who have a smartphone, tablet, or a computer with any of the two known ports. The device will feature a full-sized USB-A plug for PCs and a USB-C plug on the other side. This means that from now on, people will no longer need to use a separate flash drive for computers and phones as the Ultra Dual USB Type-C Flash Drive will serve for both purposes.

With this Ultra Dual USB Type-C Flash Drive, users can quickly move files from a USB-C phone to a USB-A computer/laptop and vice versa, as the new version with USB 3.1 spec boasts read speeds of up to 150MB/s.

“By 2020 we expect that 44 percent of all mobile phones sold worldwide will include a USB-C connector, that’s about 800% growth over the next four years,” said Ken Hyers, director, Wireless Device Strategies, Strategy Analytics, who added that “At this rate of anticipated growth, we expect to see more and more solutions like the SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive USB Type-C flash drive that offer consumers a way to move and access their content between devices with varying connectors.”

The Ultra Dual USB Type-C Flash Drive will be available for purchase through Amazon and other retailers.
