Nextbit has announced that it will be rolling out a major update to its Robin smartphone that will be aimed at boosting the battery life of the cloud-focused device. Specifically, the company says the update will be pushed out in Q4 this year.

« We can apply the same intelligence we’ve used for smart storage towards making your battery last significantly longer, » Nextbit said in a post on its community website. « 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. »

The company also said that it’s planning to implement the new, battery-saving feature « on top of the features Google has implemented in Marshmallow and even on what has been announced for N. »

This comes just a week after Nextbit launched a beta testing program for the Robin. We expect the battery-saving feature will first be available to users of this beta testing program before rolling out publicly.
