2TB? Do you mean 2GB?

If yes, then any Best Buy has them!

SD cards can go up to 512GB at the moment. One of those will set you back around  $300USD and have a transfer rate of 95MB/sec write and ~150MB/s read.  

MicroSD is more or less the same.    CF cards are the only memory I know of that have 1TB capability and will leave a VERY deep hole in your pocket. They  are used for shooting uncompressed 4K on high end Sony, Red Epic and other professional cinema cameras. They aren't available to the average consumer.

LG g5 supports 2TB cards but I don't think there are any other card available than 1TB. Maybe in future we will have 2 TB memory cards.

BY the way, found some cards for LG G5 here. Maybe helpful for someone who are looking for the same.

Meaningless at the moment. All it means is the software / hardware is capable of addressing 2TB of memory in SD format, should it become available.

Correct, while the specs are there for 2TB those cards are NOT on the market at the moment.  I agree with David on this. 
@ Nelson Hernandez. .. No this is not referring to a 2.5" HDD. The G3-G5 refer to 2TB micro SD card which is purely theory only right now.  
  
There is talk in the next few months of a 1TB MicroSD card by Samsung (leader in the Flash storage industry) . Be aware that it's going to be very expensive $$$!

Yes, 512GB SD cards are about $300 each, just now. I would expect a premium on the early release to make 2TB cards about four times the cost of the phone to OP wishes to put it in.

Your link does not lead to a description of a 2TB SD card, available in the marketplace. Please provide an appropriate link.

Sandisk/Western Digital just figured out how to make 1TB sd cards this year, and they only started showing off the prototype in September. Multi terabyte sd cards are at least a year or two off.

If you can get a 2TB microSD card, it'd be brilliantly expensive. Might be worth the price-tag if you were thinking of spending weeks or months with your LG G5 in places where you wouldn't get cellular network (forest/jungle/desert/sea/polar caps/etc.). Then you'd have plenty of storage for multimedia.

Otherwise, back-up multimedia to an external harddrive via a computer, or store it on the cloud would be my suggestions.
