Nextbit Robin Android smartphone finally gets Android Nougat update
Nextbit Robin
Razer-owned Nextbit started a closed beta test for the Android 7.0 update back in November, and now the official Nougat firmware is finally ready for everyone. The handset should continue to receive updates until February 2018.

Nextbit Robin has been around for a while, but its maker was recently acquired by Razer, and so this handset can no longer be purchased via official channels. Fortunately, it has been confirmed that security patches and firmware updates will be provided through February 2018. 

Android 7.0 Nougat for Nextbit Robin has been in a closed beta stage since November 2016. Now, build number 88 becomes the first public release and it should reach all Robin smartphones in a few days. According to the official forum post about it, the new firmware comes with the security update dated January 5, 2017.

Thanks to this update, Nextbit Robin users should be able to enjoy their handsets for at least another year or two. After all, the specs remain at least decent - Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, 13 MP main camera, a 5.2-inch IPS multitouch full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, USB Type-C, NFC, and so on.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
