Samsung's new 16TB HDD doesn't have a price, nor do we know about read/write speeds or IOPS. But we can expect that it will pack Samsung's next-gen 48-layer, 3-bit V-NAND technology. Samsung said that it could "easily double the capacity of Samsung's existing SSD line-ups, and provide an ideal solution for multi-terabyte SSDs".

There's no ETA on Samsung's new 16TB SSD, but we shouldn't expect it anytime soon. We still have to wait for 1TB and 2TB SSDs to become more affordable in the consumer market before we leap frog past 4TB, 8TB and 12TB. But, this is super-exciting news nonetheless.
