NextbitRobin08For those who don’t know about the Nextbit Robin, this is a phone which focuses primarily on cloud storage. While the phone does come with 32GB of onboard storage, there is an additional 100GB of cloud storage in which your photos, apps, settings, and etc. are all stored there so that accessing it from anywhere will be a cinch.

It also comes with a tweaked version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, although the good news is that if you’re more of a fan of CyanogenMod and the features it offers, you’re in luck. According to a report from the International Business Times, it seems that there is a special version of CyanogenMod that is being worked on specifically for the handset.

This is thanks to the fact that Nextbit’s co-founder, Tom Moss, is a founding board member of Cyanogen, and together both companies are developing a specific CyanogenMod ROM for the Nextbit Robin. This ROM is expected to be made available to users in the coming months as an alternative platform to the current version of Android used by the phone.

We’re not sure how different this ROM will be compared to other CyanogenMod releases in the past, or when exactly it will be released. But for users who are planning to get the Nextbit Robin and would like a bit more flexibility in their choice of OS, this could be worth looking forward to.
