Samsung wants to make sure you don't run out of space on your phone by upping their game and providing 1TB of embedded Universal Flash Storage on a single chip.  The new chip is physically similar to the current 512GB version, so you won't have to buy a phablet to download all your 4K cat videos for offline viewing.  They have also increased speeds at the same time, as we have become accustomed to with other flash storage, with Ars Technica reporting sequential reads of up to 1,000Mbps

Rumour has it we might see this as a choice in the upcoming Galaxy S10.

"The 1TB eUFS is expected to play a critical role in bringing a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices," said Cheol Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung."

The biggest little storehouse in Texas ... terabytes on gumsticks

This year at the Flash Memory Summit big is in as Toshiba unveils an 85TB 2.5" SSH and suggested a 20TB M.2 drive is not far off.  SK Hynix will release a 64TB 2.5" SSD with a 1Tbit die size which analysts expect to offer somewhat improved reads and writes compared o their previous offerings.  The two companies will be using 96-layer QLC 3D NAND in these drives and The Register expects we will see them use an NVMe interface as opposed to SATA.  Check out the story for more detail on these drives as well as what Intel is working on.

"The Flash Memory Summit saw two landmark capacity announcements centred on 96-layer QLC (4bits/cell) flash that seemingly herald a coming virtual abolition of workstation and server read-intensive flash capacity constraints."

CES 2017: Kingston Launches 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT USB 3.1 Portable SSD

Kicking off the storage announcements at CES 2017, Kingston announced a 2TB thumb drive:

Ok, well it's a bit big for a thumb drive, but it is definitely a high capacity portable SSD with a narrower profile (width wise) than a Samsung T3, and is meant to be plugged directly into a USB port. Thickness may be an issue for some applications, but I assume they would include a short extension for those trying to plug into tighter spaces like at the rear of a PC case. The release was light on details, particularly performance, though I'd expect these to be able to do a few hundred MB/s on sequentials at a minimum. More should come out about this and other Kingston products later in the week.

*edit* Here's a couple of pics I snagged at one of the events here:
