In addition to Android Marshmallow features, the new firmware will also bring Nextbit's new custom camera app, and the sound-tuning option to make the audio clearer on device's dual speakers as well as earphones.

How to check for OTA update on Android phone:

Go to Settings >> About Phone >> System updates

Since the OTA roll-out process is carried out in stages, it will take some time to reach all corners of the world.

In a related development, Nextbit Robin is slated to make its debut in India later this month.

The highlight of Nextbit's Robin is users will get free 100GB cloud storage, and the phone, whenever connected to Wi-Fi, will automatically sync (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 rear with a cloud image to indicate the phone is undergoing the syncing process.
