The 970 EVO ships in familiar looking packaging. There is an image of the enclosed SSD on the front. Capacity, model and V-NAND architecture are advertised here.

The back of the packaging advertises Samsung's new slogan and 5-year warranty.

The drive is cradled in a thick plastic protective carrier.

Included with the drive is a printed installation guide and warranty statement.

The component side of the PCB has a manufacturer label covering the major components.

The back of the PCB is devoid of components. This is where Samsung's exclusive copper infused thermal label is applied.

Removing the manufacturer label reveals Samsung's nickel plated "Phoenix" five-core 8-channel NVMe controller, a Samsung DDR4 2048MB DRAM package and two 1024GB 64-layer V-NAND 3-bit flash packages.
