Samsung Cloud is the cloud service that for long Samsung had been rumoured to be working on for its devices. It launched nearly two weeks ago with the new Galaxy Note 7.
Now, Samsung is extending its availability to its other 2016 flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge through a software update.
Samsung Cloud allows users to backup up to 15GB of data on their Samsung devices (contacts, documents, photos, videos, app data, settings, accounts details etc) to the cloud for easy access and restoration on another device or upon a factory reset.
Samsung normally brings features found on its latest devices to older devices through software updates. The Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ have pretty much all the unique features of the curved display on the Galaxy S7 Edge. The latest such move has seen last year’s Galaxy S6 devices (S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+) and the Galaxy Note 5 get the same set of gamer tools accessible to users of this year’s flagship Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
It is not clear at this point if Samsung will extend the same courtesy to those devices in the case of Samsung Cloud though we can’t see why that won’t happen as there are more value add-ons on the Note 7 that its software features gracing older devices won’t water down its allure to the consumer.
