Samsung today announces a more affordable variant to its $1,499 4TB solid state drives, presenting the 4TB QLC SSDs. While specific price points are unknown, the immediate draw here is that Samsung ensures the same 540MBps read and 520MBps write speeds for its new SSDs, in comparison to existing SATA SSD drives.

Designed for personal use, the new storage drives, including 1TB and 2TB iterations, also come with a three-year warranty, alleviating reliability concerns.

In addition, Samsung discloses that it will make use of the same technology “to efficiently produce a 128GB memory card for smartphones that will lead the charge toward higher capacities for high-performance memory storage.”

You can look forward to the initial 4TB QLC SSDs arriving later this year. For more on Samsung’s new technology, follow here.
