OnePlus has released one small software update for its newly launched mobile phones OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro. The new OxygenOS 10.0.4 updates for OnePlus 7T series has now enabled the cloud storage feature announced by the company during the launch of OnePlus 7T. As a feature launch offer OnePlus is also providing the additional 50GB free cloud storage for one year.
OnePlus cloud storage is the new feature for OnePlus products and a new step towards making a better and sustainable OnePlus ecosystem. By the OnePlus Cloud Storage all OnePlus 6 onwards mobile phones will be eligible to get the 5GB free online storage like iCloud and Google’s cloud storage. Right now, OnePlus cloud storage is available only for the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro users but soon it will be available for other OnePlus 6 onwards mobile phones.
OnePlus mobile phone users can use this cloud storage to backup their photos and video like Google Photos. It’s very similar to the Google Photos but here, you will not get the unlimited free HiRes photo backup like Google Photos. Once you have enabled the Auto Sync option, all photos and videos on your device will be uploaded on OnePlus Cloud in original quality and there will be high resolution but an optimised version of images on your local storage.
OnePlus is also offering the additional cloud storage on-demand but of course, you will have to pay for that. OnePlus users can get the additional storage up to 1024GB by paying the up to ₹560 monthly. For now, there are three storage plans which are 50GB, 120GB and 1024GB; price for 50GB will be ₹75 monthly, 120GB will cost ₹140 monthly and users will have to pay ₹560 for 1TB or 1024GB cloud storage. If you are already planning to buy the OnePlus Cloud Storage plan then probabily you should also consider the Google Cloud Storage which has almost the same plans at almost the same cost.
