Samsung has been in the news since early 2012 regarding its flagship smartphone – Galaxy S3. The South Korean smartphone manufacturer turned all the heads towards it with the unwrapping of the S3 at the Unpacked event on May 3, 2012 in London.
S Cloud, the cloud storage service of Samsung was expected by spectators to be unveiled alongside S3, but the company failed to do so. However, now there is a solid evidence on S Cloud as a German site, BestBoyZ has posted a hands-on video S Cloud on Galaxy Note 2, the phablet unveiled at the IFA 2012 expo in Berlin on August 29.
The video shows the existence of the cloud service in the phablet's settings menu. There are options to sync photos and videos Dropbox, provided that they have a Samsung account. Further, the company is offering 50GB free Dropbox storage for the Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note 2 buyers.
Other than the Dropbox's standard video and photo uploading feature on Android, or the deep integration promised for the products like Galaxy Camera, the other features of the S Cloud are not clear.
As Samsung is yet to announce the cloud storage feature, there is a possibility that it is still under development.
There are chances for Samsung to allow the S Cloud to function on the latest incarnation of Android, Jelly Bean OS. Apart from Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera, which come preloaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the other models like Galaxy Note 800, original Galaxy Note and Galaxy S3, which will get the Jelly Bean update might also receive the S Cloud service.
Samsung is expected to release the S Cloud in October, to throw some light on the other features of the cloud storage service.
