Samsung Might Bring Back One of the S6's Biggest Missing Features

By Darren Orf on at

The Galaxy S6 smartphone was a first for Samsung in many ways. It was the first phone to truly take on the iPhone in terms of design, and also the first to ditch two of its most prominent features: a removable battery and microSD card. Now, one of them might be making a comeback on the Galaxy S7.

According to Italian site HDBlog.it, Samsung could be reintroducing an expandable microSD card slot in the Galaxy S7. This makes a ton of sense, especially since Android Marshmallow supports flex storage, which essentially lets you use external storage like internal storage. However, there’s no mention if a removable battery will also be making a comeback. That little tech detail may be dead for good.

Also, as an interesting side note, the report also says that the Samsung will be releasing the Galaxy S7 as a 5.2-inch smartphone with a flat display and a Galaxy S7 Edge as a larger 5.7-inch smartphone, much like the S6 edge+.

Want more? The phone may instead curve on the top and bottom of the device rather than the sides. So, yeah...there’s that. [HDBlog.it via SamMobile]
