Only those who learn from their mistakes thrive in the long run. Samsung apparently knows how to flourish so it will undo at least one of its wrongdoings that led to a major objection in the success of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. According to a fresh rumour coming from an Italian Samsung blog, Samsung will bring back the microSD card option in the Galaxy S7, allowing users to add extra storage when needed.

Samsung Galaxy S5 was the last flagship device that supported microSD card expansion up to 128GB but the option was no longer available in the Galaxy S6 series in favour of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB fixed variants. After losing the flagship battle to iPhone 6 and 6S series in recent years, Galaxy S7 is the much-needed boost for Samsung.

Samsung is pinning a lot of hopes on its Galaxy S7 and rumours have been rife about an early launch of the device. The competition in the premium smartphone race has been dominated by the likes of Apple's latest iPhones and Samsung took a major hit in its most profitable category. The Korean tech giant is looking to turn the tables around with the Galaxy S7.

As usual, Samsung hasn't dropped any hints about its 2016 flagship but rumours suggest the Galaxy S7 to be unveiled in February. As far as the specs go, Galaxy S7, which is internally being referred to as Project Lucky (hopefully), will sport a Quad HD display, USB Type-C port, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, fingerprint scanner, upgraded Sony IMX300 sensor for camera and an advanced version of iPhone 6s-like 3D Touch feature.

Additionally, the handset is said to arrive in two variants, one with company's own Exynos 8890 octa-core processor and another with Qualcomm's 2.2GHz Snapdragon 820 chipset.

As the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 begins on 22 February, Samsung will likely launch the new flagship on 21 February.
