Nextbit Robin
The new firmware for this handset now supported by Razer comes with the official patches from Google dated April 1, 2017. It has 560 MB in size and provides overall performance and security improvements.

Nextbit Robin owners had to face quite a few delays until they finally received their long-awaited smartphone, but since Razer took over this brand, it seems that software updates are coming along just fine. Not long after receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update, owners of this smartphone can enjoy Android 7.1.1 as well.

The new firmware has 560 MB in size and does not come with any new features. However, it packs the official security patch dated April 1, 2017. The update change log simply reads "This software update will improve the overall performance and security of your Robin, while upgrading it to Android 7.1.1."

Back in January, Razer acquired Nextbit, and it was revealed that software update and security patches would be offered until February 2018. Remains to see if this includes Android O or not, but it is good to see that Nextbit Robin is one of the first devices to be updated to Android 7.1.1.

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.
