As a matter of surprising fact, the said USB, although, is one of the best on this planet isn’t made Type-C, in fact it is a USB 3.0 with Type-A. The drive which will come encased in durable and attractive Aluminum casing will be able to transfer one single 4K movie in about 15 seconds.

The 256 GB variant of the USB will be priced at about $179.9 while the 128 GB variant for $80.

SanDisk also launched the Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card along with it. The card would be able to support transfer speeds of up to 95 MB/s. The card would cost $199.9. Both articles would start shipping to global markets later this month.
