In addition, the brand has announced that it will be rolling out the August software update for the phone next week.
The Nextbit Robin’s August update will bring the ability to backup videos on the cloud. “Just like with photos, old videos you took but don’t watch can be archived to create more space on your Robin”, said the brand in a blog post. The update will bring improved thermal tuning and the Android security patch for July. This update is already available for beta testers, and will be released to all the users next week.
