Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users will get 15 GB of free storage space via Samsung Cloud
Officially announced a few hours ago, the Galaxy Note 7 is Samsung's first Note to have only a 64 GB version. Of course, just like the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge (but unlike the Note 5), the new Note also supports microSD cards - which is obviously good news. And since we're talking about storage space, we're happy to inform you that - just as rumored - the Note 7 comes with Samsung Cloud. This is a brand new service that's debuting on the Galaxy Note 7, allowing you "to use up to 15 GB of free space to store and restore information." The space will be used including for automatically backing up the data on your device.

Right now, it's not exactly clear what markets will get Samsung Cloud, as Samsung says that "service availability and scope may vary by each region and market condition." Nevertheless, we assume that all Galaxy Note 7 users in the US will be able to take advantage of this. Sure enough, 15 GB is by no means a huge amount of cloud storage space, but, hey, it's free and it could certainly come in handy at times.

As a reminder, pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will open starting tomorrow, August 3, and the handset should start shipping (and be widely available) on August 19. Are you getting one? Before deciding, perhaps you'll want to check out our Galaxy Note 7 hands-on.
