Nextbit, the company which launched the cloud smartphone Robin a few months ago, has announced an ember color special edition of the smartphone. The ember color variant will be exclusively available via Flipkart from next week. The new variant will be available for Rs 19,999, the same price at which the smartphone had launched in May this year. Nextbit points out that a limited number of ember color variants will go on sale. Also Read - Razer phone with dual cameras, 8GB RAM listed online ahead of November 1 launch

“We re introducing a limited ember colorway for summer. Ember has a neutral, deep-black back with bright red end caps that really pop,” Nextbit said in a blog post. Besides the new color variant, Nextbit has announced details about its next update to the smartphone. With the next update, the smartphone will be able to archive videos as well. So far, Robin could archive photos only in its smart storage.

Today our beta testers will receive a software update that adds video support. 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, Nextbit explained.

The August update will also come with Android s July security updates and improved thermal to keep the smartphone cooler in hot temperatures.

For starters, Nextbit is a San Francisco-based company and is mainly known for its Robin smartphone that comes with a Smart Storage. The feature enables automatic archival of content including apps and photos when your device is running out of onboard storage. Users can also pin apps that they don t want to be archived. It is worth pointing out that the smartphone doesn t archive Google and system apps. The smartphone is a rectangular shaped device and has a plastic body.

Along with the Smart Storage, the Robin also created buzz with its unique form factor. Unlike the contemporary smartphones that have curved edges, the NextBit Robin has a rectangular design. It has a plastic body with sharp edges. The fingerprint scanner is embedded on the edge just like the Sony Xperia Z5.

Nextbit Robin specifications

The smartphone features a 5.2-inch full HD display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 32GB built-in storage out of which 24GB is available for user.

The Robin comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, Wi-FI and GPS. The smartphone supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 and USB Type C for fast charging. It runs Android Marshmallow out-of-the-box.

According to a report, Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) displays are said to soon replace Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens as the leading smartphone display technology in 2020. Samsung has already adopted OLED displays in its flagship smartphones such as the Galaxy S7. Demand for OLED displays seems to be increasing as Chinese vendors Huawei, OPPO Electronics, Vivo, Meizu Technology and others are also planning to opt for it.

Apple is also expected to use the OLED displays for its 2018 flagship device, the Apple iPhone 8. Universal Display Corporation, a supplier of materials and technology for OLED products, is expected to benefit from the rising demand. Its stock has risen more than 40 percent in the past 12 months, the report noted.
