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.

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:)
