The Nexbit addresses the limited storage issue in smartphones with a cloud-based storage solution. It can automatically back up photos and apps that haven't been used recently to the cloud to free up space on the device. It features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, a Qualcomm hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of inbuilt storage which is non-expandable. The Nextbit Robin comes with 100GB of free cloud storage space.

Other features of the Nextbit Robin include a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2680mAh battery, a USB Type-C charging port, and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
