Yesterday Android Authority got an exclusive video of someone actually handling and using a Galaxy S7 device. From the video we can see that the devices is a bit beefier than the Galaxy S6. We also see the design language is essentially the same from last years model. We can see the phone appears to be running Marshmallow touchwiz, and the camera bump on the back is much smaller than the S6 camera bump.

More interesting than the video is an image that was sent with the video. It shows a guy holding the Galaxy S7 with a Simcard/microsd card hybrid tray. The tray appears to have been ejected from the Galaxy S7. This would seemingly confirm the Galaxy S7 will indeed have expandable storage!

Great news! Looks like quite the fingerprint magnet on the back. Oh well, it'll be in a case anyways.
Won't be long now!

I can confirm that the MicroSD card IS back! But there are some catches. If you want it to save your movies in 4k, it must be a special SD card (I don't remember what specifically). It is also 32gb internal storage.

Bring on the S7!

Awesome! So we can pretty much count on it in the Note 6 also.... I'm getting a little excited.

My question is this... if you want to swap the SD card that also means you are pulling the SIM card...

Being that this device doesn't have a removable battery, there won't be a need to power down the device for a swap.
I do have to remove the battery to get to the SIM on my S5. (Not the sd card though)

I always just unmount, pull and switch. Not a huge deal in the big picture
