San Francisco-based telecom manufacturer Nextbit has said that it will start shipping its first smartphone - Robin, priced at Rs 27,000 ($399) to Indian markets by the end of April 2016.

Nextbit’s Robin comes with a promise of unlimited cloud storage from the manufacturer. The phone was first launched in the US market in September 2015 and has been well received by the consumers.

Although the phone offers 100 GB of free cloud space for storage, the response of the product in India can be disappointing given the reach of Internet in the country and still high price of mobile data.

The Robin boasts a 5.2-inch Full HD LCD display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on the top. The device encases a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor complemented by a 3GB and offers 32GB of internal storage space.

Robin also sports a dual front facing speakers while a fingerprint ID scanner is mounted on the side lock/unlock button. A 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera are installed on the device.

Out-of-the-box, the Nextbit Robin runs company’s own Nextbit OS, which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. On the connectivity front, the smartphone comes with 4G LTE support, 3G, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, USB-Type C, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and more.
