Just upgraded to the 3G Samsung Mythic so I should be set for the next few years.

Plus it wouldn't be good for them if they kept making peripherals obsolete.

They've gone the Apple model upgrade route on their Galaxy S line this year. I'd be more willing to predict and won't be surprised if they release an S7[s] some mid-year next year
I don't care about chipsets. I want a premium metal case, 4.7" screen, and the same quality camera as the Galaxy S6.
BTW - there was supposed to be a S6 mini. Where is it?
USB Type-C port.
Google used USB Type-C implementation as an excuse to discontinue wireless charging in their Nexus line. Will Samsung do the same?
samsung-ex-employer, 20 Oct 2015bring new design or you can call it even galaxy S 21, nobody cares if it will look like crapDid Apple bring a "new" design in the iPhone 6S / Plus ...??!! You forgive Apple for all its faults... despite the fact that's its a lousy piece of junk in reality...
Samsung is pure class... Its doesn't get better than a Samsung flagship... Apple should be confined to the American market only... Lets see how good it is then...
Apple looks as unimaginative and boring as it did 5 years ago...

It is because sd card patend and licencing belongs to sandisk , toshiba and panasonic so who ever has sd card slot anywhere in their devices they have to pay annually licence fee..
Simple as that..
Without sdslot no licence fee ;)

Anonymouses, 20 Oct 2015This shall be successful. Apple is dead. Samsung even improved their single core performance a... moreLol selling 13m units in 3 days is dead? Samsung is closer to dying than apple just btw. The s6 was a flop and thus Samsung are being forced to release the s7 a month earlier.
The only reason for the phone not having the sd slot is technical - they came up with quite cutting edge memory and memory controller, but it didn't have support for sd cards yet. Out of the two, it was much better decision for device longevity and performance over time to use UFS memory than a typical one and an SD.
The S6 will be so hard to beat, but if this one is even more awesome and takes the design evolution even further I might as well for the first time buy a new generation just a year after the previous. The lucky 7.
Mailman, 19 Oct 2015You saying again? Then, what Samsung copied from iPhone before?Capacitive touch, premium build (no micro sd, removable battery), fingerprint scanner and soon 3D touch. That's just off the top of my head.
let's see if this S7 is better than S6 like battery life and availability of SD card slots otherwise if it is the same I will not bother buying it
