Former Google employees Tom Moss and Mike Chan who partnered to set up Nextbit, a fresh mobile firm, have already rolled out their first project. Dubbed as Robin, the upcoming phone happens to be the only cloud-first smartphone. With an integrated cloud OS, the handset is expected to offer unlimited storage options.
Moss and Chan had launched the crowdfunding and they are doing really good. If the reports are to be believed, they have already made one million. Though it is far from its target of five million, developers seem to be very hopeful about it.
Robin is likely to have an exclusive design blended with some attractive features. The handset looks very different from other smartphones and it “gets smarter every day and makes running out of space history.”
If we talk about the specifications, Nextbit Robin features a 13.20cm (5.2-inch) IPS LCD display with the resolution of 1080 pixels. Powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, the phone has 32GB of internal memory and 100GB of cloud storage space.
It sports a massive 13MP rear-facing camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-tone flash besides a 5MP front-facing snapper for capturing selfies. Packed with a 2680 mAh battery, Robin runs on Android Lollipop and comes with quick charging support, LTE, NFC connectivity, dual front-facing stereo speakers and a fingerprint sensor. It comes with an unlocked bootloader as well as open source drivers which allow you to download CyanogenMod or any other ROM you love. If all goes as anticipated, the handset might tie-up with major US carriers like Verizon and Sprint to launch the phone.
