Nextbit’s red Robin that got the internet all worked up a few weeks ago is real, and you can buy it right now.
Starting today, the red Robin (Nextbit calls it ‘Ember’) is available for purchase directly from Nextbit for $299.
The company says supplies are limited, and if you are really into the red colorway — we’d advise you to jump on it. Nextbit is making it a limited edition device, which is exclusive to this Summer.
We don’t know how many Ember Robins exist. Those in India don’t need to worry, either; Nextbit has reserved some devices to be sold via Flipkart, its sales partner in India.
Beta testers will also see an update that allows them to store videos in the cloud, which are surfaced on your phone based on how often you access them (just like it does with photos).
Those that aren’t beta testers should see this feature roll out widely starting next month along with Android security updates and thermal tuning to keep Robin running cool.
