Samsung Galaxy S7 specs tipped to include microSD card support and top-bottom curved 'edge'


The upcoming and yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy S7 flagship device had been the topic of countless rumors. Now, the device is once again hot on the rumor mill, as new reports suggest that Samsung may be planning to re-introduce a long lost feature on their most recent premium smartphones releases to the upcoming Galaxy S7microSD card support.

According to a Samsung-focused blog Il Messagero, there are reports saying that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 will be bringing back the microSD card support to flagship devices. This is following Samsung’s removal of the microSD card support from the entire line of Samsung Galaxy S6 flagship series, as well as on other smartphone and tablet releases, therefore urging users to depend more on a cloud-based storage.

It was not mentioned why Samsung may be planning to bring back such a feature to the upcoming smartphone.

While it may no longer be a new thing for most users to hear that the upcoming Galaxy S7 flagship will be coming in two variants, the “other” variant may very well be coming with something more than what most people are expecting.

As what most people already know, it is expected that the Galaxy S7 will be coming with a standard variant, and a curved “edge” variant. As per the new report on the same website, the standard variant will sport a 5.2-inch display, while the curved “edge” variant will be having a bigger screena 5.7-inch display. However, unlike the previous Galaxy S6 edgewhich only had curved sidesthe “edge” variant of the Galaxy S7 is said to be having a curved edge on both the top and bottom of the display.

In a previous update, smartphone industry tipster Ricciolo (@Ricciolo on Twitter) revealed that Samsung will allegedly launch the new Galaxy S7 on the company’s Galaxy Unpacked 2016 event, which is expected to take place on Feb. 21, a day before the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
