In an unusual move, Samsung on Monday denied existence of a 2 TB version of its M.2-2280 970 Pro SSD. The company said that it did not have plans to release such a product, yet did not exclude a possibility of launching such a storage device in the future.

“Samsung has not released a 2TB version of the [970 Pro] drive and there are currently no plans,” a spokesperson for Samsung said Monday. “We will let you know if that ever changes.”

Samsung's public rejection comes after two international retailers in China and in Germany posted product listings for the drive last week. The Chinese retailer went so far as to publish a picture of the drive, whereas the German one revealed its MZ-V7P2T0BW model number. We've also been able to call the German retailer and talk to them directly, confirming that the drive listing is no automation fluke.

In any case, while Samsung’s refuting deserves to be taken at face value, the fact that retailers have photos and model numbers is odd to say the least. How these facts will be ultimately be reconciled – whether it’s some kind of canceled product, a limited release product, or Samsung isn’t ready to announce it quite yet – remains to be seen.

    Note, when I say MLC I mean 2-bit MLC and when I say TLC I mean "3-bit MLC."

    And if that's not confusing enough, TLC has eight levels.

    Right, 2^3 = 8 voltage states as opposed to MLC's 2^2 = 4.

    How would you connect three hundred and fifty of them?

    And laptops beware - its the 110mm length type.

    I'm more interested in the 2TB 970 Evo Plus which we were told would be coming in April.

    This is the end of April but there is no news yet. I returned two unopened 970 EVO 2TB bought during boxing day sale. Waited for four months and there is no sign of coming. Asked Samsung several times but they have no idea when it will be available. If there is a delay, they should announce it rather than keeping people waiting and waiting. Very annoyed.
