Nextbit Robin users to get an update with battery life improvements later this year

Nextbit Robin

The makers of the #NextbitRobin have announced that the smartphone will start receivingĀ a new update which would significantly enhance the battery life. The update will apparently hit devices sometime by the fourth quarter of the year, so it’s still a few months away. For those interested in testing out the update before its commercial release, Nextbit will make a beta available as well, which is worth a look.

The company, in its statement, takes a jibe at phones with larger batteries, mentioning that the Nextbit Robin’s update will make changes on a system level, cleverly learning from your usage patterns to conserve device battery life. It’s not known if any of this will actually have a significant improvement on your battery life, but Nextbit clearly likes to think so.

So if you’ve been less than pleased with the battery life of the handset, be assured that a new update is on its way. You can find Nextbit’s statement in its entirety below:

Because battery technology has improved slower than other technology, the industry has relied on more efficient processors and larger batteries (What do you think is under all those 5.5″+ screens?) to do their dirty work. These steps do give you more battery life, but the improvement is only incremental. Nextbit will solve this problem a new way – once again offering performance beyond just what the specs say.

We can apply the same intelligence we’ve used for smart storage towards making your battery last significantly longer. In Q4 we will launch a new version of Nextbit OS that gets to know your habits and optimizes functions at the system level to ensure you get the most screen time possible. Just like with smart storage, we can apply this on top of the features Google has implemented in Marshmallow and even on what has been announced for N, compounding the power savings to offer you true peace of mind.”
