Nextbit, from a Kickstarter campaign to now a fully-fledged company has finally decided to enter the Indian market with their Robin smartphone. Reports suggest that the company will launch the handset on 25th April.
Robin has been touted as the phone that never runs out of storage. It mainly focusses on Nexbit’s cloud capabilities that can sync user data and installed applications to it’s own cloud storage. The phone comes with it’s own skin over the Android Marshmallow ROM that can remove applications that have not been used for a while. Users can get them back whenever they want as the data is saved in Nextbit’s cloud storage. There are four LED’s that indicate when the device is syncing from the cloud storage.
The phone comes with decent specifications, though not the latest but still usable. On the front you are greeted by a 5.2-inch HD IPS display. On the inside you have Snapdragon 808 with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage with 100 GB of free cloud storage. You also get a fingerprint sensor placed under the power button. Other features include USB Type-C, 2680mAh battery, stereo speakers, 13MP rear and 5MP front shooters. The phone’s design is something that you’ll notice. It is not the usual metal or glass device, but rather uses rubberised material with dual-tone colors that are vibrant.
The phone has received great response from the western countries. But a smartphone that relies mostly on it’s network capabilities is something a bit of challenge here in India. Let’s wait and watch, what’s in store for the Indian consumers. Meanwhile you can comment your thought in the comment section
