Your next phone could see a major jump in storage

Over the past few years, smartphone storage has climbed to 256GB, giving users plenty of space to store images, documents, and media. Now, a new report suggests your next device could feature double the storage that’s available right now, rivaling what you’d find in high-end PCs.

According to PhoneRader, which spotted a regulatory listing via TENNA, Huawei could be the first manufacturer to release a phone with 512GB of storage. For context, the 13-inch MacBook Pro (non-Touch Bar, because who needs that?) I’m using to type this post only has 128GB of storage.

Some devices, such as the iPhone X, come with 256GB of storage, which is plenty. Other phones support microSD expansion up to 2TB, so our storage needs are more than being met. But I don’t think anyone would say no to a phone with 512GB of storage. You’ll never have to worry about running out of space again.

Other details about the Huawei device are unknown, though there is a mention of 6GB of RAM, which is relatively standard across the high-end Android market. With the rise of 4K video, 512GB of storage would come in handy pretty quick.

If such a device does exist, don’t count on it ever being available in the U.S. Earlier this week, a report suggested Best Buy would no longer sell Huawei devices, which follows a comment from the FBI urging consumers not to use Huawei products.
