Popular San Francisco-based technology start-up Nextbit all set to launch the company's flagship cloud-based smartphone Robin in India.

Nextbit Robin was launched in the U.S. in 2015 for $399 (around €354/Rs. 26,603) and now the device will be officially made available in India by the end of this month, NDTV Gadgets360 reported, citing company officials.

But Nextbit refrained from revealing the device's exact launch date and price details.

For the uninitiated, Nextbit Robin can be shipped to India from the U.S., but consumers have to pay $70 (roughly Rs. 4,667) as delivery charge. Once officially launched, Indians need not pay additional amount to buy Robin.

The USP of Nextbit Robin is that users will get free 100GB cloud storage and the phone, whenever connected to Wi-Fi Internet, automatically syncs (with encryption) apps, videos, images and other forms of data with the cloud storage. The company has incorporated light system with four LEDs on the device's back with a cloud image to indicate the phone is undergoing syncing process.

As far as hardware is concerned, Nextbit Robin boasts 5.2-inch full HD IPS LCD screen, Android Marshmallow-based custom Nextbit OS, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt memory and a 2680mAh battery.

It also houses a 13MP camera with dual-tone flash, PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and a 5MP snapper on the front.
