Nextbit also provided details about the August update. Starting today, Nextbit Robin’s beta testers will receive an update which will add smart storage support for videos. “Just like with photos, old videos you took but don’t watch can be archived to create more space on your Robin. And just like with photos, when a video is archived, a thumbnail remains on your local camera roll so you’ll never forget it, even if you never watch it.” explained Nextbit on its Community Page. If the update works properly, it will be rolled out to all the Robin users.
The August update will also include July security patches along with thermal tuning to keep the Robin cool. If you want to join the beta testing program for Robin, you can apply here. Coming back to the Ember color variant of Robin, it can be purchased from Nextbit Store for $299. As we said above, Indians will have to wait till next week if they want to buy the Ember color variant of Robin.
