Samsung Galaxy Note 5 could have a micro SD card slot after all, but only one specific variant


Samsung Galaxy Note 5 S6 Edge Plus

A few long-time Samsung fans weren’t too thrilled to learn that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will more than likely not come equipped with either a removable battery or a micro SD card slot. While this was to be expected (the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge both ditched these long coveted features), there were still those holding onto hope.

Well, a glimmer of light is now shinning through the darkness as a new report out of Taiwan claims the dual-SIM variant will also have a SIM tray that doubles as a micro SD card reader. This actually isn’t too uncommon in parts where dual SIM smartphones are prevalent and while it would make sense for Samsung to do their customers a solid by offering this feature, there was no word on whether we’ll see this outside of China. Here in the US, we typically only get single SIM slots/trays. But you never know.

If nothing else, let this be a lesson to all that nothing is ever final until it’s official. We still got a good couple of days before Samsung unveils the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge plus (maybe even another mystery device) during their Unpacked event on August 13th. Stay tuned.
