Nextbit Robin, a “cloud first” Android smartphone was officially introduced in September last year for $399 via Kickstarter. The device was available for $299 for the first 1,000 early Kickstarter backers and was later released in USA via Amazon for $399. Now, Amazon has brought back the Kickstarter early adopter price of $299 by slashing the price by $100. However, the offer is valid from May 4 to May 10. Hence, if you or your friends are in USA, you can pick up the Robin for $299 from Amazon, since it is an amazing deal.
Nextbit Robin was supposed to launch in India by end of April but according to our sources it has been postponed and will now launch by the end of May. We will bring you more information on the same. Lets now have a recap of the specifications and features of the device.
Nextbit Robin Specifications
The Nextbit Robin features a 5.2-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD IPS display that is powered by a 1.8 GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 64-bit processor along with Adreno 418 GPU. It has 3 GB of RAM and comes with 32 GB of internal memory along with another 100 GB of cloud storage. The device runs on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS out of the box.
Since it is a “cloud first” phone, it will allow the users to quickly upload apps, photos and other contents. If you do not use certain apps and photos, it will automatically get cleared. An app that has been offloaded from the phone will show a grayed-icon on the phone. The basic idea of Nextbit is that users using Robin should never run out off space. The smartphone will automatically backup data when connected to a WiFi network.
