Huawei Consumer Business launched Huawei Mobile Cloud, a new cloud storage service for users of its mobile phones. The services enables the backup and restoration of data and phone settings, the synchronisation and transfer of data across Huawei mobile devices, as well as the storage and access of files using Cloud Drive. Subscribed users to the Huawei Mobile Cloud will receive 5GB of free cloud storage.
From September, the Huawei Mobile Cloud update will be gradually rolled out on the Huawei P10, P10 Plus, P10 lite and Nova 2, with other models to follow in due course. All photos and videos taken with the camera, screenshots and screen recordings can be automatically backed up to the cloud. Users can access them from their browser at cloud.huawei.com or from the Gallery App on their device.
Data can also be automatically synchronised across all Huawei mobile phones, so it’s quick to access Contacts, Calendar, Wi-Fi and Notes using the Huawei ID. This data can also be managed through the Cloud Web Portal. At launch, Huawei Mobile Cloud will offer 5GB of free cloud storage and there will be the option to upgrade and purchase more storage plans from 2018.
All data is stored exclusively within the EU on European servers, in compliance with EU Data Protection and Privacy Laws. All the services have been designed with user privacy in mind, and the Huawei Mobile Cloud Services are certified by CSA Star (ISO/IEC 27001).
Full Huawei Mobile Cloud feature support will be initially available at launch in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, UK, The Netherlands, Finland and Poland, with more countries to follow later. Updates for the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus will start rolling out on 27 September followed by the P10 lite on 28 September, while the Nova 2 will receive Mobile Cloud on 30 September. Carrier launch schedules will vary.
