Samsung India recently unveiled its new consumer solid state drive (SSD) line-up, the Samsung 860 QVO SSD which features up to four terabytes (TB) of storage capacity.

Built on the company’s high-density 4-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash architecture, the 860 QVO aims to make terabyte capacities more accessible.

“There is a rise in demand for higher capacities and greater performance when it comes to storage devices as consumers today are producing, sharing and using more high resolution files, which include graphic intensive games and 4K videos,” stated Sukesh Jain, senior vice-president, IT and mobile enterprise business, Samsung India.

Mainstream PC users handling large multi-media content often need to upgrade their PC’s storage to improve everyday computing experience. Samsung said the 860 QVO fits perfectly into most standard laptops or desktops, as it is based on the commonly used Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface and 2.5-inch form factor.

The 860 QVO will be available in India from January 2019 at a starting price of Rs 11,249 for the 1 TB model, Rs 18,749 for 2 TB Model and Rs 37,499 for 4 TB model.
