Galaxy Note 5 microSD card slot allegedly pictured on purported dual SIM variant (Update: Galaxy A8 has this)

By Anton D. Nagy August 13, 2015, 3:16 am

Update: Eagle eyed readers have spotted, and confirmed, some of our suspicions. The image at the very bottom of the post depicts the Samsung Galaxy A8, and this particular phone has a double slot on the left edge. We might be looking at this in the picture above, or Samsung might be doing the same with the Note 5. Thanks @cinquetacche!

Before you become too happy or excited, we need to warn you to keep skeptical about this. There’s no way in telling whether the device pictured above is indeed a Galaxy Note 5 variant, as claimed, or another Samsung phone. That being said, here’s the takeaway, as suggested by the report: a dual SIM variant of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 will indeed bring microSD card support. The secondary tray is common for the SIM and microSD, meaning you can’t use two SIMs and the expansion card.


We’ve already heard a report claiming this exact same information last week, aka the existence of a Galaxy Note 5 microSD card slot on the dual SIM version, and, while some manufacturers have already done this before, it would make little to no sense for Samsung to fragment (read discriminate) its own Galaxy Note 5 line-up, except if said dual SIM variant would have different (read, probably lower) specs, aimed at emerging markets where two SIMs are the way to roll. Remember: skeptical!
