The large capacity is possible due to the introduction of Samsung’s 48 layer 3D V-NAND. The 120GB model of the 850 EVO is therefore removed from the lineup and replaced with models with larger capacities. The 850 EVO top model will have a capacity of 4TB.

The new NAND memory will also be part of Samsung’s 950 Pro SSDs, the current M.2 drives of the Korean electronics giant. A 1 TB 950 Pro is planned for the third quarter this year.

The company has not disclosed any details on prices of the upcoming drives.
