A recent leak of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 suggested that the company would not be using a microSD card slot with the device. This is because Samsung will be utilizing a metal unibody construction with a non-removable back panel, which makes it hard to add a microSD card slot.
But a new report mentions that Samsung might not get rid of the feature altogether and dual SIM versions of the handset will still be able to use microSD cards. This makes sense as modern dual SIM handsets can use the second SIM card tray as a microSD card slot.
However, Samsung is yet to confirm this, so we’re treating this as a rumor for now. If true, it goes without saying that the model will be limited to just some markets and not the entirety of the world. Dual SIM handsets are usually limited to Europe and Asian markets, so we won’t be surprised if similar treatment is shown this time around.
