The much hyped ‘cloud’ smartphone Robin has finally landed in India. Result of a Kickstarter campaign, the Nextbit’s handset is known for its free 100 GB online storage space. The unique idea here is that the rarely used app will be offloaded to free up the local storage. Sounds interesting, but not sure how well this feature will work in developing markets such as India. Those not in the know, it has 32 GB internal storage, but lacks a microSD card slot.
The phone runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It is highly modified to integrate cloud in most of the features. In terms of specs, the phone comes with 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display, Snapdragon 808 chipset, and 3 GB RAM. In the photography department, you get a 13 megapixel camera. There’s also a 5 megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. The Robin has a 2680 mAh battery.
The Nextbit Robin is priced at Rs 20,000. It comes in “mint” and “midnight” variant and is only available on Flipkart.
