Nextbit Robin starts receiving final Android 7.0 Nougat update

Back in November of last year, Nextbit started a closed beta program for its Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Robin smartphone. Many builds and many months later, today the final form of that update is finally going out to all Nextbit Robin owners. Of course, as this is a staged rollout, it may take a while before it reaches all units in the wild. But it is coming.

Once you install the new software, you’ll be running Android 7.0, build 88, with the January 5, 2017 security patch level (and not a more recent one, unfortunately).

As you’d expect, this version packs everything that Google built into the first Nougat iteration. Not long ago we’ve seen a Robin getting benchmarked with Android 7.1.1 on board, so hopefully the beta builds for that will start soon – since Nextbit promised to keep software support for the Robin alive until 2018, despite being acquired by Razer a couple of months ago.
