Samsung 860 EVO 2.5-inch SSDs land in the Philippines
Samsung made their announcement on their new 860 EVO and PRO line of SSD’s two weeks ago. They pack V-NAND flash memory, a new MJX controller, and up to 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. This keeps the speeds fast at up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write, as well as a long lifespan of up to 2,400 terabytes written (860 EVO).
The 860 EVO comes in M.2, mSATA, and 2.5-inch form factors. The latter is now available over at Villman in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities.
Samsung 860 EVO specs:
2.5-inch, mSATA, M.2 form factors
Samsung V-NAND 3-bit MLC flash memory
512MB/1GB/2GB/4GB LPDDR4 cache memory

As the specs show, the 2.5-inch version does come in 2TB and 4TB capacities, so we would guess that these would arrive in the country as well at some point.
