The phone also borrows some traits from its step-sibling, the Nextbit Robin featuring a box-shaped body with the fingerprint sensor located on the right edge. The company's UltraMotion display is expected to deliver smooth graphics and synchronize with the phone's graphics processing unit to reduce display lag. It's also equipped with Dolby Atmos in the dual front-facing speakers.
