Nextbit Robin - Android home screen

More support for Nextbit Robin with Android 7.1.1 update

Razer has continued to show signs that it intends to keep its promise to provide updates for the Nextbit Robin. Another new Android version has been made available for the smartphone, with the release of an update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

The latest Nextbit Robin update maintains Razer’s good record, after Android 7 Nougat was released in March.

Razer acquired Nextbit in January this year, promising at the time to maintain support for the start-up’s smartphone, even though the gaming company discontinued sales of the device.

The Nextbit Robin emerged out of a high-successful Kickstarter campaign.

Offering a new approach to smartphone architecture, the Nextbit Robin was centred around the cloud. Although it provided onboard storage, this was combined with cloud storage, with the handset designed seamlessly manage both.
