Hard disk manufacturer Western Digital has plans to launch drives with a 5 TB capacity by late 2013. The manufacturer also aims to expand its Red and Green series with a 4 TB model. Slides published by the Russian 'Always More Digital' and PC Games Hardware show that the development of the respective series is virtually simultaneous.
Unfortunately, the slides don't reveal what we are to expect in the high-performance Black series, the 'regular' Blue and 2.5-inch Scorpio line of drives. In the Black series, a 4 TB model is already available, which makes it possible that Western Digital will debut a 5 TB drive in this line sooner.
