Most mobile phone manufacturers are moving away from SD card storage especially on their flagship phones and show more emphasis on Online Vault Storage options.

Also buying the largest internal storage capacity one can afford is recommended.

All that said I appreciate some do prefer SD card storage as their preferred option.

Like with the headphone jack, the trend with smartphones now is no SD cards in phones anymore.
I should imagine in the next couple of years SIM cards in phones will dissappear in favour of ESIM. As this is heavily rumoured to happen with iPhones very soon.
There's also talk of wireless charging only as well

On the topic of esims... I wasn't liking this option... I prefer a physical SIM in case of any damage / fault to the phone... Or the flexibility to change over to a different handset quickly and easily.

I got the Note20 Ultra to use 2 numbers and a SD card as I have a 512GB storage memory card. I thought I was able to use 2 Sims plus the memory card as many mid tier Samsung devices support this... Even the A20e... But the Note20 Ultra doesn't... But I like my note devices and find the stylus useful for editing.

In the end, I made my EE network SIM to a esim and kept my 3 SIM physical (3 doesn't support esim fully at the time) to be fair I've had no issues. I'm very careful with my phones and the esim system seems really easy to set up. I guess it would also eliminate SIM faults as nano Sims were always prone to faults compared to old style bigger Sims.

I will try to stay on my Note20 Ultra as long as possible but yes, I'm not a fan of cloud systems either lol.

Note 20 Ultra is such a good phone, I shouldn't have traded it for the Z Fold 3 really.
But the S22 Ultra is a fantastic device and a worthy successor to the Note 20 Ultra if you need to change.
I've not gone the ESIM route yet as like you say 3UK are not there yet and I have a good contract with O2 as well I'm trying to keep without them changing the terms

I have not gone down that route yet either , pros and cons but Esims will be big in the future.  An article here for those who are interested. https://5g.co.uk/guides/which-operators-offer-esims/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

I submit if those storage needs ever became mainstream in regards to more than one SD CARD slot in a phone or unlimited sd card capacities [ who knows what capabilities are around the corner with new innovation ] I'm sure Samsung would consider it. Who knows they may have even already experimented.

I would hazard a guess that at the moment a phone with 1TB of user storage is more than ample for the average user.
