Although microSD cards and removable batteries aren’t the most necessary smartphone features, they’re definitely useful for the few of us who actually utilize them. Even though many smartphone manufactures have started to drop these two features from their phones, Samsung has been kind enough to retain them, at least until now. New reports from South Korea suggest that the company plans to drop the removable battery feature from its upcoming flagship.
Samsung is one of the few companies who have stuck to their guns in making sure the removable battery and microSD card slots don’t die off, but one of those features is said to be absent from the Samsung Galaxy S6. According to Korean Press, the Samsung Galaxy S6 battery will not be user replaceable. This is sure to be bad news for folks who love being able to carry multiple batteries or use aftermarket batteries with bigger capacities. It also makes it difficult to replace a battery in case it goes bad in its lifespan. But it’s said this decision was made for good reason — it facilitates Samsung’s design choice for the sixth entrant in their flagship lineup. The Samsung Galaxy S6’s rear panel will reportedly be covered in glass. That, plus the metal unibody chassis the device is expected to have, means Samsung would have to give up access to the rear.
