Nextbit Robin is well-known for being the first cloud-based phone that runs on Android. The manufacturing company, Nextbit, is owned by none other than ex-employees of the HTC, Apple, and other brands. Though the phone earlier was shipping to India, the company is now finally launching the smartphone in the country.


The exact launch date has not been announced yet but it is expected to arrive India by the end of April 2016. The launch price of the Nextbit Robin was $399 that comes to around Rs. 26,000. Today, the phone costs around $70 which comes to around Rs. 4,600. At what price the phone launches in India is still not know. But yes, it is going to be among the affordable ones. It surely won’t be an high-end phone.
