According to a new report, future smartphones from Samsung are likely going to have improved storage management. The report mentions that the improved storage management feature on Samsung’s future affordable and mid-range handsets will make these devices more functional. Samsung is reportedly developing this “Storage Saving” feature currently.
The report claims that Samsung’s new Storage Saving feature will help users easily free up storage on their handsets.
The main feature is said to be similar to what Google Photos already offers, which is deleting local copies of all photos and videos that have been backed up to the cloud. In Samsung’s case, the handsets will do that once the content has been moved to Samsung Cloud.
It remains to be seen just how effective this feature proves to be, considering the fact that Samsung Cloud doesn’t offer unlimited storage. Users just get 15GB of free cloud storage and in this day and age, that’s really not that high.
It’s also said that the Storage Saving feature will bring Samsung’s Device Maintenance feature to more devices. It will be a central hub for all settings related to the handset’s storage and performance.
Given that Samsung’s affordable and mid-range devices often leave a lot to be desired as far as performance is concerned, this feature should improve the user experience on those devices.
The report doesn’t mention when Samsung is going to release the Storage Saving feature for the aforementioned devices.
