After a decrease in share prices and market share last year, that seemed to have caused quite a scare for investors and management of Samsung’s mobile division, the Korean electronics giant has seem a major turn around in the manner it approaches devices. The launch of the Galaxy S6 Duo this year, preceded by the Note 4 Edge and the Galaxy Alpha series last year showcased a change in the way Samsung has started to look at its mobile devices. And now fresh rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 5 indicate a solidification of this trend.

Folks over at Sammobile, known for their well placed insider sources now claim that Samsung’s looking to go completely metal when it comes to the Note 5 Edge this year. After renders of the device surfaced earlier that showed off a unibody metal design, today’s news claims that Samsung’s looking to do away with an external MicroSD slot on its upcoming phablet as well. The Galaxy S6 Duo eliminated external storage on Samsung’s flagships for the first time, and the Korean tech giant, like Apple, is allegedly looking towards metal unibodies and minimum thickness on its devices.

Not only this, but Samsung’s UFC Storage delivers twice the speed when compared to traditional eMMC 5.0. Not only will a Micro SD be highly misplaced with UFC, but it’ll also offer different data speeds as well. This, combined with the design benefits that a metal unibody offers, might just make Samsung choose to do away with the feature completely on the Note 5. We’ll know more in the coming days.
