Samsung alongside the launch of its latest flagship, the Galaxy Note 7, introduced Samsung Cloud service on August 2, 2016. The tech giant is now rolling out the services to its previous handsets, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
We have gotten pretty used to software updates ever since those monthly security patches started rolling out. This is why we no longer make as much of a fuss about updates, but this time Samsung is giving some of you a very nice treat.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are getting a 151.89 MB update. It includes the security updates for the month of July, performance improvements, Bluetooth fixes and GPS upgrades. But that is not all, and the cherry on top is a bit of a surprise.
The OTA update also comes with Samsung Cloud, which was introduced with the Galaxy Note 7… a phone that isn’t even out yet. This means the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are officially the first phones to get Samsung Cloud.
Samsung Cloud service offers 15GB of free storage space and enables users to backup their data for an easy access. The service was announced as an enhancement of Samsung’s Smart Switch feature, which allows users to transfers data from one Samsung device to another.
The report also speculates that Samsung may soon roll out the cloud service to Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, and Galaxy Note 5 in the near future.
