Dropbox has confirmed that the new Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Camera will both be synced to a free cloud account, complete with 50GB of storage to start. The service will provide users with up to two years of cloud before they’re asked to fork over the monthly dues.
The Dropbox app will come pre-installed in both devices, but a special feature in the Galaxy Note 2 will automatically send every photo and video the user has in their Gallery to the connected Dropbox account. This could prove to be helpful to some, but possibly annoying to others who do not realize how much space they’re running up with every photo they take. The 50GB-added space directly available on the Galaxy Camera could be extremely resourceful, however, because that’s a ton more space than most camera owners have in their SD card anyway.
“The most important thing to us is to provide our users with the ability to have a seamless experience across the many mobile devices they use,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox. “These integrations with Samsung’s latest Wi-Fi and 4G enabled camera and Galaxy Note II means Dropbox users can rest assured their photos and videos will be with them anytime, anywhere.”
No confirmations, however, if this feature will be available to United States-based users. In June, Galaxy S3 owners were disappointed to learn that a free 48GB Dropbox was also available for the new Android, but AT&T and Verizon users were ineligible. Hopefully, the carriers can work out a deal with Dropbox by the time these new products launch so owners can take full advantage of the upcoming devices.
