Now here is a smartphone that you might want to consider getting if storage space seems to be a huge issue with you – especially when you start to make recordings in Full HD resolution all the time. The Nextbit Robin has launched as a Kickstarter project, where it will certainly lose out on points when it comes to the aesthetics, but the whole idea would be to have it deliver a maximum level user friendliness and being hooked up to the cloud.
Yes, you read that right – the cloud. It will have Android’s Marshmallow OS and will be accompanied by 32GB of internal memory, and without any kind of memory card slot, the Nextbit Robin will ensure everything on it is backed up to the cloud, including your media and data. Whenever it figures out that you are no longer making use of an app or photo, those will be deleted from the handset, and you can always retrieve them from the cloud as and when required.
Other hardware specifications include a 5.2″ IPS 1080p display, a Snapdragon 808 chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP camera at the back with phase-detection AF and dual-tone flash, a front-facing 5MP shooter, a USB Port-C port with quick charging capability, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, and LTE connectivity, a quartet of notification LEDs and a fingerprint scanner. There will be 100GB of available cloud space for everyone, and the first thousand backers of the Nextbit Robin on Kickstarter can get it for $299 a pop, with it being scheduled for a February 2016 release.
