I hope the title is explanative enough of what I am trying to get across here. I'm basically asking how possible/expensive would it be to create a storage PCB exactly like the one found in the switch but instead of having the BGA pinout for an EMMc Chip it would have a pinout for a UFS chip or an EMMc chip that has a capacity larger than 256GB. I'm asking not because most people are going to fill up a 2TB MicroSD worth of games but for the future, since they plan on supporting the switch until around 2023 or even longer, technology may progress to where 2TB microSD cards are in fact a thing but they are way too expensive to purchase for the average consumer. Also, I'm just curious to know would it even be possible. If anyone knows anything please let me know it will be very much appreciated.

It is possible if someone decides to put in work to prototype a game card slot reader and redirect the main storage toward that, like how the Vita got SD2vita.

Im talking about the internal NAND itself not the game cart

What I mean it is possible if someone decided to put in the work to prototype the pcb and develop software for it to be supported, probably need to be redirected to something else like game card to get more storage.

I know that there are many services that can help you. I have had experience with such services. It also depends on the amount of money. By the way, this is mostly beneficial, because there are situations when only one sample board is needed. I worked for a company with electrical engineering and pcb basics and we ordered printed circuit boards for testing. I also ordered them when were problems with the TV remote at home. I'm sure it will be useful for you too, you can use this way, it's just my advice:) Share then what you decided , I'm just interested:)

    Stayin inside for memorial day. Just like other holidays, most people dont care or think about the actual reasons behind it. For most it's just another reason to get shit faced drunk and spout off hyper-patriotic nonsense. The Trumpers around here going to be out in full force with their trucks and guns and flags making noise all over town. Hard pass.
