Ex Google and Apple employees have made a phone they claim gets better the longer you own it

San Francisco startup Nextbit is set to launch a new Android smartphone that it claims will improve over time. This new device will be launched on September 1, and will be the first smartphone produced by the new mobile developer, which comprises former Google, Apple, HTC and Amazon employees, and can name Google Ventures (Google's venture capital investment arm) as a backer.

In an interview with CNET, Nextbit said that the device “will perform better over time and function at a higher level” because of the company's continued optimization of the Android operating system. Nextbit Chief Technology officer Mike Chan added: “We’re focusing on a device that can adapt to you.”
Quite what this means, or how this will affect the phone over its lifetime, we don’t yet know, but we'd have to assume it is something more than the standard Android software updates that other smartphones already receive. 
Chief Executive Tom Moss, an ex-member of Google's Android team, says the phone is "going to be friggin' awesome."
Nextbit’s experience in Cloud Storage will also play a part in the device's functionality; the company plans to use cloud technology to increase the device storage and allow you to carry "as many apps, photos and videos as you want.”

The device will cost in the region of US$300-400 and CNET said that the company is “looking to move forward with a different kind of premium device.” As it is being spearheaded by Scott Croyle, one of the key figures behind the HTC One’s design, it's probable the new smartphone will also have an attractive design. 
We’ll have more on Nextbit's Android phone for you shortly, but we’re certainly intrigued by what we know so far. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.
