Note that these pen drives are only compatible with Android smartphones that support USB with OTG. The company believes that given the number of sub-Rs. 10,000 Android smartphones that support OTG in the market, these pen drives will come in handy for quick data transfer to easily free up storage on their phone.

- Free up space on your Android smartphone or tablet so you can take more pictures and videos
Western Digital found that around 60 percent smartphone users in the country share over 10MB of data daily, based on a study it conducted. It also found that 50 percent consumers use data cables or Bluetooth to transfer data from the smartphone to other devices. The SanDisk Dual Drive comes in four storage options of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, which are priced at Rs. 700, Rs. 1,150, Rs. 2,000, and Rs. 3,500, respectively.
Consumers for the SanDisk Dual Drive will also need download an accompanying SanDisk Memory Zone app to be able to back up their gallery and manage files and media.
