According to Joswiak, the company sold 30-million 4-inch iPhones just this past year. That's no number to scoff at. They've decided to continue the 4-inch display legacy with another model.

But this Smartisan T2 is brand new.

The NextBit Robin smartphone may be the first in a new era of smartphone - far more trusting in its creator.
