Seagate is expanding its wide range of storage devices with the launch of three new models, Wireless Mobile Storage, Seagate Seven, and Seagate Personal Cloud.
Of the three, the Seagate Seven is quite interesting as it features an ultra-slim body measuring at just 7mm, earning it the title of world's slimmest portable hard drive. Named aptly after its thickness, Seagate Seven is slimmer than Apple's iPhone 6 Plus.
Seagate unveiled the new hard drives at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 event in Las Vegas. The Seagate Seven features a full metal chassis, which gives it premium finishing, sturdy build and classy look overall. The hard drive supports USB 3.0 and comes with 500GB on-board storage. The launch of the new portable drive marks the company's 35th anniversary.
"Seagate has been providing the world with storage since the modern origins of computing history," Mark Whitby, senior vice president of Seagate Branded Group, said in a statement. "Seagate Seven is designed to speak to this history, while looking forward to the future of where storage technology is headed. We believe that Seagate Seven will resonate with those who want the latest trend in mechanical design while inspiring the user to create great experiences and memories."
Seagate Seven can be extremely handy to be carried in bags or pockets. It measures 9.6mm in height, 76mm in width, 113.5mm in length and weighs 150g.
Seagate Seven, like all other Seagate drives, comes with a two-year limited warranty and will be available across the globe later this month. Seagate Seven portable drive is priced at $99.99 (₹6,300).
