Dual SIM Galaxy Note 5 to have a microSD slot?

Those wishing the Galaxy Note 5 would bring back the microSD slot to Samsung flagships will be interested in a report from Taiwanese site Sogi.com.tw, which says that the dual SIM version of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will feature a microSD slot. The slot will be a hybrid slot like the one seen on Samsung’s Galaxy A series that will allow users to either use a second SIM card or opt to expand their storage instead.

We’ve written a lot about how a microSD slot isn’t going to be seen on Samsung devices as long as the company is using the new UFS 2.0 internal storage standard, and this report should be taken with a pinch of salt. Not because Samsung can’t make UFS 2.0 and microSD work together, but because we don’t think the Korean manufacturer will limit such a feature to very few markets after so much has been made about its absence from the new Galaxy S flagships.

However, dual SIM flagships have been catching on recently – the LG G4 comes with dual SIM slots in many markets, and so do many of the low-cost flagship smartphones from Chinese manufacturers (including the OnePlus 2.) There’s less than a week left for Samsung’s official unveil of the Galaxy Note 5, so it won’t be long before we find out if the company is returning to its roots with an expandable storage option for its next hero device.

What exactly are the benefits of dual sims and can the phone switch seamlessly or does it require a reboot or disconnection first?

Hurray, latest reports say Note 5 has micro SD slot:

Note 5: 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5 mm (6.04 x 3.09 x 0.33 in); Exynos 7422, 4100mAh battery(non removable), upto 128GB microSD, just 169 grams

Note 4 was 153.2 x 76.10 x 7.60 (6.03 x 3.00 x 0.30 in), 176 grams

Seems Samsung never compromises with Note line.

The S6 Edge plus will be more like the S6/S6edge specs with just the difference of bigger 5.7 inch screen and a bigger 3000mAh battery.

That’s exactly the conclusion I came to when I saw the teaser pic of the three phones!

I think they will launch the dual sim variant here in the Philippines, just like the S6 dual sim variant.

Then they’re really robbing people off their money who’re buying the normal one (before the dual sim comes out), or in the countries where only the normal one is available. :’)

Nope if the 2 sim/1sim and sd card ver comes out there will be no ufs in the phone so it will be slow, but in the areas where the 2 sim ver comes out there will not be review website saying it lags and so on and will just go good 2 sims and sd card support, so it’s all down to what you like, loads of lag and sd card reader or ufs with supper fast w and r speeds and supper fast transfer speeds

Please stop this BS about UFS2 and SD. SD should use only for media.

In the 7422 ver of the note 5 there is room for an sd card reader as the CPU is epop
