A new report claims Samsung is planning on bringing back a popular feature to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. The smartphones will reportedly include microSD expansion slots.

Samsung faced harsh criticism when it decided to remove two popular features from its latest flagship Galaxy S smartphones and Galaxy Note phablets: removable batteries and microSD expansion slots. Now, a new report claims the company is expected to bring back microSD expansion slots when it launches the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge at an Unpacked event reportedly scheduled for Feb. 21, 2016.

We've been keeping tabs on all Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge news as it becomes available, and in August, we reported that Samsung had begun testing a smartphone with the codename "Jungfrau," which was widely believed to be the Galaxy S7. Unlike the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which exclusively used Samsung's Exynos processors, the new handset was being tested with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 processor.

Most recently, we reported Samsung is expected to return to using a dual-processor strategy by using its own Exynos 8890 chips and Snapdragon 820 processors, depending on carrier and region, for both the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. AT&T has reportedly already started testing the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge on its network, signaling the handsets will likely go on sale soon after their official launch.

Now, a new report is providing some new details on what to expect from the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and there's one rumored feature that will surely please Galaxy S smartphone fans. According to HDBlog.it, Samsung will bring back microSD expansion slots to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, something the company highly touted for years when comparing its high-end smartphones with Apple's iPhones.

The report also claims that the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will both feature different size displays, with the Galaxy S7 using a 5.2-inch display, similar to the Galaxy S6, while the S7 Edge will feature a larger 5.7-inch dual-curved edge display. The source claims Samsung will use the curve at the top and bottom of the display on the S7 Edge, as opposed to the left and right on the S6 Edge and S6 Edge+.

As always, we'll keep you posted on any new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge news as it becomes available.
