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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
