Nextbit teases a red version of its Robin smartphone

Nextbit Robin

In a recent Periscope and Facebook Live stream, Nextbit announced its new web client, which improves on picture access and management and will soon be available for beta testing – but it wasn’t the mail app that got people talking.

Instead, it was what appeared to be a red Nextbit Robin amongst a pile of Robins on the desk.


Though Nextbit hasn’t officially stated that they’ve embraced the obvious and created a red Robin, the company followed up with a tweet that pretty blatantly suggests the assumption is correct, stating:

“There are no mistakes. Only happy accidents.”

Of course, this being just a semi-intentional leak, there’s no information on when we might see this red version of the Robin in the future, but it would fit nicely with the phone’s overall quirky and cute design.
