Smartphones have been a thing for a long time now, and tons of companies from all around the world manufacture these devices. We’ve seen various different types of smartphones introduced to this day, and things have become quite stale, we don’t really get to see that many innovative design choices lately, and same can be about software which comes pre-installed on smartphones. There are companies which are trying to innovate in both of those areas at once, and Nexbit sure is such a company, read on.
Nexbit has introduced Nexbit Robin handset a while back, a smartphone which is a product of a very successful Kickstarter campaign. This smartphone has actually started shipping on February 16th, and it seems like it has already been sold out. Both the Midnight and Mint variants of these devices are now out of stock on Nexbit’s official site, but you can subscribe to be notified when they become available again, in case you’re interesting in getting one of those. “We are thrilled at the reaction, and super thankful to our backers and fans. We are already ramping up on inventory post Chinese New Years to make sure everyone who wants one can get one soon,” said Nexbit’s CEO and co-founder, Tom Moss.
So, what makes Nexbit Robin so special? Well, the device sports a rather interesting and bold design, as you can see in the gallery down below, The phone is quite boxy, but also really nice looking at the same time, the accents on the phone are rounded, which goes against the general shape of the device itself. This mix of style actually makes Nexbit stand out, and if you add its software on top of all that, well, this is a rather unique phone. Nexbit included some of their own software on top of Android to make it look different, and the main software feature of this phone is also quite interesting. The Nexbit Robin is also called a ‘cloud phone’, why? Well, it relies on the cloud to backup your data once the phone feels internal storage is becoming full. The phone can backup your apps and data to the cloud, same goes for images and various other files on the device. Those files will be easily accessible thanks to Nexbit’s software, and it seems like everything is working as it should, at least according to initial tests. Video backup support is also coming soon according to the company.
Nextbit Robin’s specs are also quite good actually. The phone features a 5.2-inch fullHD IPS LCD display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 808 SoC, and a 13-megapixel camera is placed on its back. Dual front-facing speakers are also a part of this package, and you do get 100GB of cloud storage for free with this phone. The Nexbit Robin is expected to become available again soon, so stay tuned if you’re interested.
