Samsung was widely expected to unveil a cloud service called S Cloud alongside the Galaxy S III in May, but it didn’t materialize in the end. We’ve just seen the first solid evidence of its existence, however, courtesy of a hands-on video from German siteBestBoyZ where S Cloud appears in the Galaxy Note II’s settings menu.
There are options for syncing photos and videos, and beyond requiring a Samsung account it also hooks into Dropbox — potentially a good way to use that 50GB of free storage that Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Camera owners will receive. We previously heard that S Cloud might have been delayed while Samsung searched for a commercial cloud storage partner, and it seems that may well have been accurate.
IT’S UNCLEAR WHAT S CLOUD OFFERS BEYOND DROPBOX
However, it’s unclear what features S Cloud currently offers beyond Dropbox’s standard video and photo uploading on Android, or indeed that service’s “deep integration” promised for upcoming products like the Galaxy Camera. S Cloud may still be under development since Samsung is yet to make any announcement, but if nothing else this is the strongest indication yet that it exists in some form.
