The Nextbit Robin is special phone even before you consider its cloud-first strategy. Based on its exterior, you can easily see why it’s the most unique phone of the year. The Robin comes in Mint and Midnight, which are both big departures from the typical colors you can get a flagship in.
Soon, Nextbit could be offering the Robin in another bold color. And it’s a logical color considering the name of the phone.
On Thursday, the company tweeted out the image you see at the top of this post that shows red paint spilling onto a Midnight Robin. So yes, Nextbit is seemingly preparing to send a red Robin out of the nest.
- Nextbit Robin review: Up in the air
- New price of the Nextbit Robin is $299
- Nextbit wants to “save your battery before it needs saving”
That’s not the only reason why we believe a red Robin is migrating our way.
What else indicates a red Robin is on the way? Not just a red paint can and a brush. Nextbit hosted a live-stream on Facebook this week in which the company and its employees completely ignored the fact that the Robin in this unannounced color option was visible. That pretty much ends any reason to speculate that the Robin could be sold in red. We now know that the Robin is practically guaranteed to be sold in red.
We assume the $299 price that became permanent in June will carry over to the red Robin.
