Nextbit tries to rethink battery life with an upcoming software update


Battery life is a ginormous pain in the you-know-what with all smartphones today. We’ve seen companies add huge batteries to devices, just to see software issues destroy the battery life. We’ve also seen OnePlus throttle back the 6GB of RAM that was included with the OnePlus 3, to help provide better battery life for its users (for better or worse).

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.

Nextbit, the company behind the Nextbit Robin, is working on a new software update that will hopefully drastically improve the battery life of its devices. The company released a blog post today that details some of the ways that other software developers are working on new ways to extend battery life by making more use of the cloud.

Considering that the Nextbit Robin has a primary focus of working in the cloud, it makes sense that the company gets on board with trying to change the game. What the company plans to do for a device that was released last year, will be interesting to see, but even if something monumental comes out of it, not everyone will be able to experience the benefits.
