An app-making startup Nextbit, founded by Google and HTC alumni has stepped into the smartphone market with its latest smartphone, Robin that claims to never run out of storage.

Nextbit has worked for around two years grouping up the team of mobile experts that could carry out their project to assemble a smartphone with infinite storage and their hard work has really paid off as it has already achieved half of their crowdfunding goals on their very first day of kickstarter.

The underlying idea behind so called infinite storage is nothing but Cloud storage making it so called “the only cloud-first smartphone” as claimed by its manufacturers. Now-a-days, smartphones are available with the storage capacity ranging from 16 GB to mammoth capacity of 128 GB, but along with the storage goes up the price tag of phone. That’s what makes the cloud storage such as Google, Amazon, Dropbox and Apple so popular among the smartphone users.

Dropbox provides 2GB of cloud storage before upgradation, Google gives its users 15GB of storage and Apple’s consumers can use iCloud to get 5GB of cloud storage but Robin will extend 32 GB of local storage to overwhelming storage of 100 GB which is the root cause of successful kickstarter campaign and also singles it out from rest of the smartphones which offer relatively less cloud storage.


How does it work?


All of your data including photos, apps and many other files will be naturally backed up online using Amazon Web Services when your phone will be connected to Wi-Fi, or not in use that may be while charging without bothering you. You don’t have to worry about losing your phone or switching between gadgets as you will able to access your files from any other gadgets.

Robin features a 5.2 inch full HD display, 3GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and 13-megapixel camera with a 5-megapixel secondary camera supporting the latest Android. It also boasts of fingerprint sensor on the side of phone embedded in the power button which will provide better security features, for instance unlocking the phone while switching it ON.

Robin will be available at a mere price of 300$ for the first 1000 backers and at 350$ after them as compared to its adversaries OnePlus 2 and Motorola’s latest Moto X, which are available at a price of 400$.
