Let’s take a short break from the exciting avalanche of official product announcements at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, and once again check out what might be in store for Samsung’s “next big thing” ahead of a reportedly tough year.

First, we’d like to underline the abundance of conflicting rumors of late pretty much offers no guarantee regarding the Galaxy S7 and its single or multiple derivations yet. That said, not only is Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, one of the most respected voices in the mobile speculation game, but his latest exclusive is shared via Venture Beat, an equally if not superiorly esteemed tech news publication.

Bottom line, what we’re about to relay isn’t set in stone or confirmed by a company rep, but it’s the closest we’ll probably get to that before late February. Hands down the biggest and best news is the return of microSD storage expansion capabilities after a grueling year of internal limitation, and no, the card slot won’t be exclusive to the flat GS7 version.

Speaking of, there will apparently be just one non-curved Samsung Galaxy S7 model, and an S7 Edge, with 5.1 and 5.5-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED displays respectively. Always-on screens, rumor has it now, with very low battery consumption, despite their “glanceable” functionality.

Ready for more good news and another welcomed comeback? It seems the S7 and S7 Edge will be IP67 certified for water and dust protection, just like the now ancient plastic-made Galaxy S5. But the designs and build materials should be inspired from last year’s metal-and-glass S6 and S6 Edge, based on a legion of separate gossip and visual leaks.

The icing on the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge cake could be spacious 3,000 and 3,600 mAh batteries, though on the not so bright side of things, the vexing 12MP rear camera story from yesterday purportedly checks out. But don’t worry, low-light performance should be augmented by f/1.7 aperture.
