Nextbit Adds Ember to Robin, Video Backups to OS

Posted by at 9:40 am on July 27, 2016

RobinNextbit today shared two bits of news concerning its Robin smartphone.

First, the company is now selling an ember color variant. The ember model is being sold directly from Nextbit.com. Nexbit says only a limited number are available.

The ember models costs $299. Second, the company is updating the Robin’s software to include video backups. The new video-saving feature works the same as with photos; the file is moved off the device and into the cloud, but a thumbnail of the video remains on the device so the file can be retrieved when wanted.

The video backup function is available first to beta testers.

Nexbit said the planned August software update for all users will include the latest security patches from Google. Nexbit didn’t say when the video backup feature will go live for everyone.
