Earlier this year, Nextbit was bought by Razer and Nextbit CEO and co-founder Tom Moss said that Nextbit Robin phone would continue to receive software updates and security patches through February 2018. And now, the Android 7.1.1 Nougat for Nextbit Robin has indeed rolled out.
Nextbit has also released a Robin factory image for 7.1.1 on Razer Insider. So, the users who want to install the update on their phone can directly install the update using this image. The update weighs in at about 560MB and since the update is being rolled out over-the-air, it may take some time before it comes to your device. One can also manually check for the update by going to Settings ->About Phone -> Software Update.
Android Nougat brings in a bunch of features including split-screen multi-tasking, more customisable quick settings, improved Google keyboard, enhanced notifications and recent applications window. Further, the latest Android OS version also brings in ‘Double Tap’ on the Recent button to switch between the two most recent apps which come in very handy at times. For extended battery life, Android Nougat comes with ‘Doze on the go’ which will get activated even if your Nougat running device is in your pocket.
The Nextbit Robin was launched last year in India for Rs 19,999 with Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.
