We've heard that Samsung has long been preparing its own cloud service, dubbed S-Cloud, and now a report from Maeil Business claims that all will be unveiled next month. Citing a leaked "Samsung Electronics SW Consolidation Plan," the site claims Samsung will introduce the S-Cloud service at its press event in London on May 3rd.

Although there's little detail on the features of S-Cloud, Maeil Business says it's similar to iCloud but without any limitations on the type of content you can upload. It is also expected to ship with access to popular TV shows, movies, and music with free and paid content that will be available across a range of Samsung devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Storage is rumored to be "more than 5GB," but it's not clear whether that's down to paid offerings. There were hints that Samsung delayed the service after problems finding a suitable cloud storage partner, but Maeil Business claims that Samsung has partnered with Microsoft to ensure S-Cloud is available globally.
