Smartphones have become smarter with the day, but their storage capacity hasn’t really increased in comparison with the other smart features. We have slowly begun to see phones with 128GB internal storage, but there is still scope for a phone with unlimited storage. The Nextbit Robin smartphone with cloud storage is practically the first phone with unlimited storage. Available for pre-order at $399, the Robin phone is unlocked and can work with almost any carrier.
Nextbit, which touts of veterans from world’s best tech companies including Apple, Google, and HTC, had put the Robin smartphone on Kickstarter at $500,000 goal. Robin received overwhelming support and the campaign received upwards of 1.3 million in funding.
Nextbit Robin comes with 100GB of cloud storage, which allows for automatic back-up of photos, videos and apps. In addition to addressing the limited storage problem with cloud-based storage solution, Robin is a feature-rich smartphone.
It touts a 5.2-inch 1920x1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. Featuring 13MP rear-facing camera and 5MP selfie shooter, the phone has a 2670 mAh battery and a USB Type-C quick charging port. To be shipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the phone has much-needed fingerprint scanner along with NFC and front facing speakers.
Nextbit Robin smartphone is available for pre-order but you may end up paying $14 and $117 for shipping depending on your country. If you don’t want to haste with pre-orders, the phone is expected to start shipping in February 2016.
