Samsung Galaxy S7 Rumored to Feature MicroSD card slot, Snapdragon 820 SoC
Reports are coming in, which claim that Samsung’s next flagship device, said to be called the Galaxy S7, would feature an expandable storage.
According to the Chinese technology tipster Weibo, unlike the recently released Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and S6 edge+, the Galaxy S7 will allow users to expand its memory via an external microSD card. The rumor also speculates that the handset will come in two internal storage variants: the 32GB and 64GB options.
The report also goes on to claim that the smartphone will feature a metallic outer-body. However, the device is said to be powered by a non-removable battery similar to fixed batteries in the current-gen Galaxy flagships.
If an earlier report is to be believed, the high-end smartphone will either run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC or a new Samsung Exynos SoC.
As for the screen size of the purported Galaxy S7, the handset is alleged to feature two display sizes, one measuring 5.2-inches and the other 5.8-inches. The source also reveals that the S7 will sport an Ultra HD display (4K) but it’s unclear if both models will come with this insane resolution.
Other technical specs of the upcoming flagship from Samsung have not surfaced via rumors.
