Nextbit has recently revealed that a major software update is rolling out its cloud-based Robin smartphone.

The OTA update will bring among other things, an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade of the Nextbit Robin software, a bunch of new emojis, as well as incorporate Google’s April security patch. This update also includes improvements such as a better battery life, performance enhancements as well as a new and more efficient camera app that Nextbit promises, will capture better quality pictures.

Nextbit is also introducing a new sound tuning built by the Arkamys company, to their latest update. This, the company says, will help the Robin device generate clearer sounds whether the volume is switched maximum for the internal dual speakers or through a headphone jack.

Aside from the Android Marshmallow update rollout announcement, the company also stated that it has partnered with the AIAIAI audio company. As a result of this collaboration, Nextbit has released a set of custom TMA-2 headphones, designed for the Robin device. The new headphones will be based on a powerful, high-sensitivity neodymium speaker set-up, that will offer “a vibrant and detailed sound, with dynamic bass and crisp treble.” The headphones are currently available for purchase on their Nextbit.com site for US$225.

That’s not all however, another product from the partnership will be Nextbit’s launch of a new collection of ringtones that will include ringtones created by popular DJs such as Lauren Lo Sung (Patricia) and  Giraffage (Breeze). If you are interested, the ringtones can be downloaded from Nextbit’s community blog.
