Samsung looking to launch iCloud rival say reports
Press reports suggest the phone manufacturer will launch its own cloud storage service at the start of May
Samsung is set to launch a cloud storage service at the beginning of May, with supports suggesting the unveiling will take place in London.
A story in the Washington Post this weekend claimed the service, dubbed ‘S-Cloud,’ would be unveiled alongside the new Samsung Galaxy mobile on 3 May and act as a rival to Apple’s popular iCloud solution.
A report leaked to Maeil Business – a South Korean newspaper – entitled "Samsung Electronics SW Consolidation Plan" revealed the launch date and a few features customers could expect with the final S-Cloud launch.
There will be no limits to what types of files you can store on the service, which is said to provide more than 5GB for free – higher than the rumoured Google Drive service, due for launch this week.
The report also says the cloud service will provide access to popular TV shows, films or music, with both free and paid content made available across multiple Samsung devices.
The rumours of Samsung releasing a cloud service have been rife for many months but the leaked report suggests it was delayed due to technical difficulties finding the right cloud provider.
The mobile manufacturer has now chosen Microsoft to host its service, giving the necessary technical abilities, as well as the worldwide reach.
Samsung has yet to release a statement confirming or denying the rumours.
