Nextbit Robin Specifications
The Nextbit Robin features a 5.2-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD IPS display, that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. It 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.
