The latest software update for the two Galaxy S7 models on the market brings the security updates for July, various fixes and optimizations, as well as Samsung Cloud, the service that will launch with Note7 this Friday.

Current Samsung devices that run Android can take advantage of the Smart Switch app to transfer files from an old handset to a new one, but the Galaxy Note7 will soon launch next to a new online storage service. Simply called Samsung Cloud, it looks like this cloud storage service has just begun to hit the Galaxy S7 series via a software update.

According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge got a minor update at the end of last week. Having a size of almost 152 MB, this update contains the July security patch, performance improvements, Bluetooth and NFC fixes, upgrades to the GPS, as well as Samsung Cloud. Although there is no official announcement yet, it is very likely for the Galaxy S7 series to receive 15 GB of free cloud storage, the same amount as the Note7.

Next to the Note7 and the Galaxy S7 series, a few older devices are expected to receive Samsung Cloud support in the near future as well. The list includes the Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 Edge, and the Galaxy S6 Edge+.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
