    Looks like Microsoft just posted these videos today.





    Looks like the SIM slot and SD slot are stacked on top of each other which is really interesting. Will be curious to see if that's the case for the non dual-SIM variants.

    Interesting. With the 950XLs demoed at the MS stores, the second SIM was up at the top next to the camera. Everything looked uncrowded enough to do the same for the smaller 950.

    I like the "bunk bed" arrangement. Too cool.

    I don't. I hope it doesn't mean you have to pull the battery to access the sd card.

    You should never pull the SD card without ejecting it in Storage Sense and powering down anyway. Hot Swapping is not really good for flash memory...

    It looks to me from that video that you can access the SD card slot without removing the battery, as it sits above where the battery appears to be flush. But I guess we'll see.

    I think I'd prefer having to remove the battery to access the SD card. That way, it can't be accidentally pulled during a write operation. If there is a WM10 procedure to "eject" or "dismount" the SD card I wouldn't care if the battery was in, but I haven't seen one. But if you can mount external storage via the USB-C port, they will have to provide a way to eject/dismount. But even so, as a sometimes fool, I like making SD card removal me-proof. Of course if the phone doesn't have a tiny reserve charge to allow a write to complete, then pulling the battery during a write could be as bad as pulling the SD card.

    It actually kind of makes sense to have it accessible above the battery with continuum. If you want to put in a different SD card all you have to do is remove the cover instead of powering it off and then removing everything.

    But unless there is a dismount/eject option in WM10 AND you remember to use it, you can't just pull an SD card without risking corruption.

    On my 1520, which has the side trays, you could eject the SD card from the storage settings and then pop in a different card. On the latest W10M build 10581 you can tap on the SD card in storage and at the bottom hit "Remove."

    Okay, that's what I needed to know. I always turned my 1520.3 off to do it. Thanks.

    IDK

    I always power down my Beast PhoneTM before pulling the SIM or SD card. It really causes me zero pain.
