We’ve become a bit of a fan of the Nextbit Robin phone since it was announced on Kickstarter last year. The Robin, who’s main selling point is utilising cloud backup did have a few faults when Jason reviewed it earlier this month, but the Android 6.0 update planned for the phone next month will apparently fix at least a few of those issues.
In a post on the Nextbit Forums, the update to Android 6.0.1 has been outlined and a few of the headline features of the Marshmallow update have been listed. First and foremost, the phone will run better – there’s also a small update heading out today to fix some issues – but the good news is that you will get all the new Emoji you’ve been seeing as little boxes since they came out.
The camera is also getting a fix, well at least the speed of the camera is getting fixed, with low-light performance singled out as ‘SO MUCH FASTER’. Audio, including the speakers, which will sound clearer and better, and the speaker phone are getting improvements as well. Finally, the screen will look better outside.
The update will arrive next month, though exactly when wasn’t announced, and as there are 30 days in April it could be a long month waiting for your Robin update, but it could also be as soon as tomorrow – we’ll have to wait and see.
