Exclusive: Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have microSD slot, pricing and screen sizes confirmed

Sorry folks, but we have yet another bout of details about the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge to share with you. These details come from a source inside the supply chain, and confirm many of the things we have heard until now.

Yes, there will be a microSD slot on both phones, as a leak earlier today reiterated. The screen sizes are also confirmed to be 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, which means Samsung has taken inspiration from its fiercest competitor (which took inspiration from the Korean giant when it launched a 5.5-inch version of the world’s most popular smartphone) and wants to please fans of both small and large phones at the same time. You will be able to opt for a large Galaxy S flagship instead of waiting for the next Note or settling for a non-flagship phablet, or give up the Edge screen to get a smaller screen size.

In terms of pricing, there isn’t much change compared to the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge/S6 edge+. The 32GB models of the S7 and S7 edge will be priced at Euro 699 and 799 respectively (the 64GB models should be priced around Euro 70-80 higher, though our source didn’t say so). The two phones will be announced in February; our source says they will go on sale during the same month, which would be faster than even the Note 5 and S6 edge+ if the rumored February 20 date of the Unpacked event is correct.

We tend to believe what our sources tell us, and while we are willing to do the same in this case (this source has offered solid information in the past), don’t forget to keep the salt container handy. We are working to get more information on Samsung’s next big (and bigger) thing, and will continue to report on information from both ours and others’ sources.

I didn’t it hilarious that people come to comment here to complain or ask for things thinking that Samsung will actually view this website to determine there next move. Lol. They do what they want, for themselves. And bringing back SD slot? Why? It will probably be a limited amount like limited to 20gb cards so people will still have to buy there 64 and 128 gb variants.

They should bring back the FM radio, Facebook event and Contact sync in the S planner… i don’t really understand why they removed in the first place? the Galaxy A8 is pretty much a flagship and it has the Radio…..

700 EUR for the S7 Edge and there is not much difference? The S6 Edge was 1100 EUR out of pocket in Europe for the 128 GB variant so that´s one hell of a difference. 400 EUR cheaper because you can just buy the 32 GB version (or 64 for 80 EUR more) and use a 128 GB SD card and you get the same storage space like on the S6.

I am a bit afraid about adopting the SD card again cause you read everywhere it makes the phone slower. I´d rather pay 1000 EUR for 128 GB variant of the S7 edge.

when you consider that Samsung are one of the world’s largest memory card maker, surely this makes perfect sense. also might also have something to do with profit in sales. it also clearly shows how Apple & Samsung despite their apparent hatred for each other work very close to each other in following each other. just my observation. I couldn’t wait to get my S6 edge plus, as I felt the S7 didn’t have much to offer me. now it’s confirmed micro SD card. this show their inability to understand their customers,

I have no doubt that you know the real specs, but you enjoy playing the rumour game in order to bring in traffic. Without it, everyone would only visit your site just before launch.

With so many leaks in the recent days while we are stil more than one month and a half away from the WMC, by the time of the event we will know all the details about both phones and we’ll have no surprise left. I find it quite strange to have so many leaks in such a short time frame. 3 big leaks in one day…. these leaks normally happen just days before the event but never so early. Why is it so so sammobile ? do you have an explanation ?

do they get back to emmc 5.1 or they just figure out away to keep emmc and sd work with ufs maybe the snapdragon variant will have emmc and have sd and exynos no sd card

There are all sorts of possibilities… Apple found a NAND controller for their iPhone 6s series phones which is basically an SSD controller, which frankly is quite impressive, so Samsung might have found a route past the controller incompatibility issues… Or anything!

Or they found a way to keep UFS while putting an SD-card slot by putting a separate processor to the slot or a bridge to allow both of these incompatible systems to be compatible as nothing is impossible with coding and engineering
