As per the report, Samsung is also moving into the cloud space and at the event in London; the brand will also raise the curtains on their cloud based service, S-Cloud. This service is designed to directly compete against the likes of Apple’s iCloud. The website states, “Korean news outlet Maeil Business is reporting today, citing a leaked Samsung "consolidation plan," that Samsung will unveil an iCloud competitor, called S-Cloud, at its May 3 event in London. As with iCloud, S-Cloud will allow users to send content up to the cloud and sync that across multiple devices. However, the news outlet says that S-Cloud won't come with the content-uploading limitations found in Apple's offering.”
The Korean news outlet also goes on to mention that Samsung may have partnered with Microsoft to offer this cloud-based service and to ensure that the global launch goes well.
