However, instead of trying to extend the internal storage or to come with a faster processor, Nextbit is coming with something new on the market: a type of online serverwhere users can store all their overflow photos or apps.
The new cloud will offer users 100GB of total storage, plus the 32GB that they will receive on the phone.
This means that owners will have enough space to save their photos, apps, movies or music. However, there are many other brands that offer the same possibility, like Dropbox, Google Photos and Microsoft OneDrive. So, what is different compared with these other phone makers?
Well, Nextbit comes with a new built-in method that will allow users not to sign up for services. If the company’s sky’s-the-limit approach will solve the storage problem, Nextbit will have a huge success on the market.
Other brands will be forced to produce and sell phones with larger storage options to compete with this device. If unlimited content will work, Robin will not have to worry about potential criticism of not having an expandable microSD card slot or a larger onboard storage.
So, how does the unlimited storage work? When users are out of local space, the phone will automatically remove the asset and save it to the cloud, and this way free up the internal storage.
Owners will not have to worry about their content because Nexbit declared that they will hardly know the transaction has happened. Users will be able to immediately retrieve their content when they need it.
So, when looking up on the phone for an old photo and video, users will see the thumbnail in a lighter gray and they just need to tap it and wait for a couple of moments for the content to be download again on the phone.
The new Robin will run the latest 6.0 Marshmallow version from Android and it will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 2,680mAh battery with quick-charge capabilities and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. The starting price will be 350 dollars. Since the new phone is yet to hit the market, it is yet to see how this storage option will work and how it will be received by customers.
Some analysts have claimed that such a feature will be a huge success and numerous companies will try to explore the concept and bring something new to customers. The technology world is evolving so rapidly that tech companies need to release something new and impressive constantly, to be able to gain share of the market or stay in customers' preferences. At the moment, the smartphone market is dominated by Apple and Samsung, but depending on how other companies manage this, the two could even be overpassed.
