It feels like only yesterday that Seagate revealed its massive 10TB HDD, but now the company is teasing something for 2018: a new 16TB HDD.

Yes, 16 terabytes of storage on a single drive - even with Seagate having their own 60TB SSD, a 16TB HDD is equally as mad. Seagate's upcoming 16TB HDD would be the single largest magnetic HDD ever, with the company teasing its 16TB HDD would still fit into the 3.5-inch form factor.

Seagate's current 10TB HDD is $534.99, so we should expect the 16TB model to be at that price range, or higher.
