With the Galaxy S7 unveiling just over a month away now, rumors and leaks about the handset have started flowing in thick now. We have already heard from various leaks and rumors that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will come with a 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch screen, respectively. 

Now, as per the supply chain sources of SamMobile, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge will indeed come with a microSD card slot. This matches up perfectly with previous rumors of the two handset, so this should not really come as a surprise.

The source of SamMobile has also revealed the probable pricing of the handsets. The pricing of both handsets will be inline with the launch price of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge+. The pricing of the 32GB variant of both handsets will start from Euro 699 and Euro 799, respectively. The 64GB variants of both handsets will likely be priced at a premium of around Euros 70-80.

Lastly, the source indicates that Samsung plans on unveiling the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in February and both handsets will go on sale in the same month itself. Samsung products have usually taken a month from their announcement to be available in the retail stores, but it looks like the Korean company is going to be very aggressive in rolling out the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

Previous leaks regarding the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge suggest that the handset will launch with a 12MP rear shooter, 3D Touch like display, and a beefy 3,000mAh battery.

    So long as they keep the 64GB and 128GB versions then great, if internal storage is lowered as result then this is a step backwards.

        Why not? It’s available for the Galaxy S6 (I’m using one) so why provide less when Apple are looking in to increase it?

        An sdcard is not a substitute to internal storage, unless you can find one with 300mb/s read speeds? Nope, I don’t think so.

        • Because of the lack of demand and the presence of a microSD card slot. Makes no sense for Samsung to offer a 128GB variant now.
