Galaxy S7 may come with microSD slot, but keep the unibody design and sealed battery

Samsung Galaxy S7: SD Card Support, But No User Replaceable Battery
We've barely gotten accustomed to all the wonders of the Galaxy S6, but it's already Galaxy S7 rumor mill time, indicating that Samsung might have indeed succeeded to shorten the development timeframe for its flagship through a more robust project management techniques.

We already heard that the Galaxy S7 might employ two chipsets - Snapdragon 820, and Samsung's upcoming Exynos M1 project, and the alleged Exynos 8890 version was leaked today in a benchmark, sporting 4 GB of RAM. Moreover, we just learned that it might also have two versions when it comes to the screen diagonal - one with a 5.2" and one with a 5.8" screen. This tale is similar to the one we got last year for the S6, and in the end the larger unit turned out a totally different phone, so we'd take it with a grain of salt, though it might be a version with a flexible dual-edge display.

Today, one more rumor has appeared, fleshing out the eventual Galaxy S7 a bit more. The handset will allegedly have a microSD card slot, unlike its predecessor, but keep the unibody design with a sealed battery inside. The fact that Samsung wants to keep the premium designs it's been doing for almost a year now, is no surprise, as its handsets are now turning up as the only ones built with high-end materials, yet managing to stay extremely compact, and at the same time with some of the best screen-to-body ratios in the industry (looking at you, Note5). 

In any case, if the S7 indeed comes with expandable storage, we won't complain for sure, as the source claims that the S7 is envisioned to arrive with 32 GB/ 64 GB storage versions only for now.
