Nextbit Updates Robin's Camera

Nextbit today announced a small system update for its Robin smartphone. The update primarily improves the camera by adding some editing functions, including filters, crop and rotate tools, and exposure/color adjustments. The update also includes the latest security patch from Qualcomm to resolve vulnerabilities related to the QuadRooter bug. The update can be downloaded and installed over the air.
Nextbit announced the Robin last year, but the company is using CES 2016 to re-introduce the phone just ahead of its launch. This phone focuses on optimizing on-board storage using the cloud.
Nextbit hopes the Robin will convince people to jump into the cloud feet first. This Android smartphone prioritizes which apps and files get to stay on the phone, and which are relegated to Nextbit's servers.
