Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus's successor rumoured to be the Galaxy S7 IBTimes UK

Samsung, which released the Galaxy S6/S6Edge/S6 Edge Plus without a MicroSD card slot, could now launch an improved flagship device featuring expandable storage. This smartphone is said to be called the Galaxy S7.

According to a GforGames report, that quotes a known Chinese technology tipster (via Weibo), Samsung's Galaxy S7 will let users expand its internal storage via an external microSD card. This handset is also rumoured to feature a metallic outer-body.

The latest rumour also hints that this smartphone will let buyers choose between the 32GB and 64GB internal storage variants. However, the device is said to incorporate a non-removable battery similar to the current-gen Galaxy S6/S6Edge/S6Edge Plus all of which feature fixed batteries.

Other key technical specs of the purported Galaxy S7 have not surfaced via the new rumours, but according to a known Chinese source (translated), the high-end handset will be driven by either a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC or a new Samsung Exynos SoC.

A report published in Korean publication Asia Today (translated) hints at Samsung releasing two variants of the Galaxy S7, featuring a 5.2in and 5.8in screen respectively. Samsung is yet to officially announce the Galaxy S7, at this point in time.
