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.
