Smart batteries is the future Nextbit is working on

Posted by

Remember the Nextbit Robin released late last year. If you can recall, the phone corrected one particular wrong in the mobile space by introducing smart cloud storage. This phone can automatically upload your (less frequently used) apps and media to the cloud to save space. There’s also the option of re-downloading them whenever you want. It also comes bundled with free 100 GB of cloud storage. The result is a working blend of phone and cloud.


As fate would have it, many other companies have emulated the approach of Nexbit on the Robin to some of their services, see Google Photos. Apple has mimicked a similar tech in iCloud. Nextbit has seen another flaw in the mobile ecosystem they want to correct.

Nextbit to the rescue with Smart batteries

After smart cloud storage, Nextbit is taking on the age-long battery problem. Say hello to smart batteries. See an excerpt from their blog post:

Because battery technology has improved slower than other technology, the industry has relied on more efficient processors and larger batteries (What do you think is under all those 5.5”+ screens?) to do their dirty work. These steps do give you more battery life, but the improvement is only incremental. Nextbit will solve this problem a new way – once again offering performance beyond just what the specs say.

We can apply the same intelligence we’ve used for smart storage towards making your battery last significantly longer. In Q4 we will launch a new version of Nextbit OS that gets to know your habits and optimizes functions at the system level to ensure you get the most screen time possible. Just like with smart storage, we can apply this on top of the features Google has implemented in Marshmallow and even on what has been announced for N, compounding the power savings to offer you true peace of mind.

Let’s save your battery before it needs saving. It’s time for a different approach. We can’t wait to share ours with you later this year.

Let’s wait and see what Nextbit has in store for us 🙂
