when the A1)Galaxy Note 10 was released, Samsung announced strong integration with Microsoft services, including Link to Windows, Office productivity suite, and OneDrive cloud disk. Microsoft, then a partner, said: OneDrive can help users set up backups anywhere, protect, share and access photos and files stored in the cloud. Soon after, OneDrive was integrated into Samsung's library application, supporting the synchronization of photos and videos, and bringing new protection and cross-device experience.

this autumn. However, it has recently been reported that Samsung plans to introduce more devices into Microsoft's cloud services after the first product (Galaxy Note 10) with OneDrive integration, and the company is moving user data from Samsung cloud to Microsoft's OneDrive.
South Korean media Tizehelp.com pointed out that some users have received notification of cloud data relocation and have been confirmed by Samsung's support department. Users can still access the native backup, but the storage option for Samsung cloud has disappeared.
The news is very interesting because Samsung seems to have given up its native services for Microsoft solutions. If this policy is extended to all Samsung devices, it will give Microsoft OneDrive a huge boost.
