Nextbit Robin now available for pre-order

Miss your chance to back the Nextbit Robin on Kickstarter? The company is now taking pre-orders on its first smartphone starting at $399. That’s $100 more than the original early bird deal, but still a pretty good price for the exciting new handset.

The Robin runs a modified version of Android that puts a huge emphasis on cloud storage. The device will automatically delete apps, photos and other files from your phone if they’re not getting regular use. It saves those files in the cloud to clear up space on the device. Nextbit offers 100GB of cloud storage, though you’ll need an Internet connection to access all those files.

The new phone features a sleek modern design, solid specs and a built-in fingerprint reader. It comes equipped with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 2680mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of local storage. The Robin also packs a pair of front-facing speakers.

You can pre-order the Nextbit Robin now, though it won’t ship until Feb. 2016. The company’s also offering specially designed cases, screen protectors and a quick charger for the device.
