The rumors on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have been rocking between microSD support and lack thereof in the past weeks. While obviously that’s already been decided by Samsung, we have no way of knowing it yet and we’re still relying on word of mouth at that point.
So this latest report, coming from Taiwan, claims that the dual-SIM version of the upcoming high-end phablet will indeed support microSD storage expansion. The feature will be implemented in the now increasingly popular way where the microSD card shares a slot with the second SIM – not the best solution if you actually need to use both SIM cards, but single-SIM users will be able to get the coveted memory expansion.
One possible caveat is that the dual-SIM versions of flagships have been reserved to certain markets and notoriously difficult to come by elsewhere, so you may need to resort to non-official channels to acquire one. It is a viable option though, if you absolutely must have that 128GB music collection on you at all times.
Of course, good as it may sound, all this is nothing but a rumor. Had there been a photo of the card tray, we’d be more inclined to believe it, but as it stands now, the best option is to just wait out the 6 days until the official announcement on August 13.
