Within two months, Samsung is expected to reveal its 980 Pro SSD. This disk was first shown at CES 2020 at the start of the year, which was of course a much simpler time. It's the first PCI Express 4.0 SSD from Samsung and it's expected to deliver up to 6.5GB/s reads and 5GB/s writes.

That's significantly more than the competition, and also vastly higher than the Samsung 970 Pro PCIe 3.0 SSD:
This is a large jump over Samsung's 970 Pro PCIe 3.0 SSD with advertised speeds of 3.5GB/s and 2.7GB/s, these numbers also offer a significant bump over its fellow PCIe 4.0 competitors such as the Corsair MP600 with advertised speeds 5GB/s and 4.3GB/s.
Samsung plans models from 250GB to 1TB.
