We’re Nextbit. We made a smartphone that brings the power of the cloud to everyone with an integrated cloud OS. We made it because we’re tired of waiting on others. Because we believe in a cloud-first future. And because no one else was making the phone we wanted. This is the phone we want, and we think you’ll want it too. Smarter. Powerful. Bold. And, direct to you. Now we need your help. Back us to help make next a reality now.
“This sleek but unassuming smartphone isn’t an iPhone killer or a Galaxy killer, and it won’t kill any other smartphones on the market. Instead, it’s a problem killer” BGR
“Nextbit is building a bridge between the mobile world and the one that comes next, the ambient one where everything is technology.” Wired
“It’s your phone and they’re letting you do what you want with it...” Pandroid
It’s a new kind of smart
Unlike anything before it — Robin has the cloud integrated right into Android OS, and it’s perfectly tuned hardware is optimized to take every advantage of it.
It's supercharged with the cloud
It can do what others can’t — seamlessly expanding its storage online so you always have the space you need for what you want most. By tapping the unlimited potential of the cloud, Robin delivers beyond its specs.
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).
Robin backs up your apps and photos whenever you’re connected to power and Wi-Fi. (These are the default setting to conserve power and data, but you can change them to fit your needs.) After you’ve been using it for a while and start running out of space, Robin intelligently removes apps and photos you haven’t used in a while - even if you’re offline. Robin knows they’re already backed up safely. If you ever want an offloaded app or photo back, no problem. Just tap on it and we restore the full version right away. It’s hassle free, the way everything should be.
Built on the newest Android, Robin will be familiar right out of the box, but you’ll quickly realize it’s a better experience. We like to keep things simple, and we’ve taken a light touch with the look and feel, streamlining everything so it’s intuitive in all the ways you want it to be, and organized so that what you want is where you need it. Because everything we do with Robin is based on up to the minute innovations on Android, it will always be running on the newest possible version. We’ll do our damnedest to ship it to you running Marshmallow, unless that drops after Robin ships. Then we’ll do an OTA update as soon as possible.
And storage is just the beginning
With Robin you’ll be on the frontier of a much bigger movement. We have big plans for future cloud-first features that will continue to intelligently enhance your experience by seamlessly adapting to how you live and work.
It doesn’t try to fit in (except in your hand, where it fits very nicely, in fact). Robin is for people who are tired of the status quo and crave something with more personality. It’s designed to feel effortless — reducing clutter and increasing usability. The placement of everything is arranged so every port, button and sensor feels harmonious, symmetrical, and makes sense.
