The Galaxy S7 is already expected to pack lots of high-end hardware, but a new rumor suggests the company could bring back one feature that was missing from the Galaxy S6. According to HDBlog.it and its “reliable sources” the Galaxy S7 will also include a microSD slot for adding extra storage.
Until last year, most of Samsung’s flagship phones included space for a microSD card. Then the Galaxy S6 swapped expandable memory for a slim metal design, and the company kept that trend going with the Galaxy Note 5. Thankfully, it looks like the South Korean giant may be able to offer the best of both worlds in next year’s flagship phone.
The same report also reveals a few more possible details on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. It turns out Samsung may offer a smaller 5.2-inch flat-screened phone along with a larger curved model. The S7 Edge will allegedly pack a 5.7-inch display, which lines up with earlier claims that the company could offer two different size options in early 2016.
The Galaxy S7 Edge may also have curves at the top and bottom of the screen, instead of on the left and right sides. This could open up new software possibilities, and give Samsung another chance to convince us that the extra screen space is really worth the cost.
The company actually patented a similar design earlier this year. That lends some support to the latest Galaxy S7, though we’d still treat this entire report with suspicion until Samsung officially announces the new phone next year.
