NextBit’s Robin is an affordable Android that makes storage obsolete

Robin is the only cloud-first smartphone. It gets smarter every day and makes running out of space history.

Are you running out of storage space on your smartphone? Can’t upgrade your operating system because you have too many baby pictures taking up all the room? Well, that’s the problem Nextbit is looking to solve with The Robin, a ‘cloud-first’ smartphone that makes the storage space a thing of the past.

“We’re Nextbit. We made a smartphone that brings the power of the cloud to everyone with an integrated cloud OS.”

What is it?

Robin is a Android smartphone that doesn’t rely on a traditional hard drive. Instead, all of its storage is stored in the cloud.

What makes it different?

Robin intelligently adapts to your storage needs and automatically optimizes the space on your phone when it sees you need it. By learning the apps you use and the space you need, Robin offloads the stuff you don’t use to the cloud. So you can have everything you want (in the cloud), and just what you need (on your phone).

What’s under the hood?

Running a premium Snapdragon processor by Qualcomm means you can trust Robin to get the job done. It only uses what you need for what you’re asking it to do, so it’s always running optimally (Qualcomm powers a majority of the smartphones you know and have owned, after all).
