A good majority of smartphones these days max out at 512GB of internal storage. For the most part, we reckon that this has largely to do with demand, where maybe not enough users are asking for 1TB options which is why many phone manufacturers never bother to go beyond 512GB.
That could change because with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, it looks like a 1TB option has been confirmed. This is according to a tweet by Ishan Agarwal who has actually built up a pretty solid and reliable track record over the years. Agarwal claims that he can “confirm” that 1TB will be an option for the Galaxy S22 Ultra model.
I can confirm that there will be a Galaxy S22 Ultra variant with 1TB Storage but Samsung might release it in only select regions. Important European markets will surely get it. https://t.co/QSaed40FPD

He specifically mentions the Ultra model so presumably the other models in the lineup will most likely cap out at 512GB. This is actually not the first time we’ve heard this rumor, but it’s good to see that the latest report does corroborate what we have heard before. Also, this isn’t the first time Samsung has introduced a 1TB model.
The company actually created a 1TB model for the Galaxy S10+, but subsequent models like the Galaxy S21 Ultra maxed out at 512GB. We’re not sure what changed the company’s mind to bring the 1TB model back, but for data-hungry users, this could be something to look forward to.
