Android 7.0 Nougat Now Available For The Nextbit Robin

After successfully conducting the beta testing of its Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Robin, Nextbit has now made Android 7.0 Nougat available for the users. Nextbit Robin is the company’s first ‘cloud-first’ smartphone with intelligent capabilities that can analyze the apps that a user don’t use it often and shift them to a cloud.


Android 7.0 Nougat is now being made available through build number over-the-air. A user can use the build number ‘Robin_Nougat_88’, and includes all the goodies that feature in the standard Nougat update for other devices. In terms of the update, only January security patches for Android are included rather than February or March update, which again might be a setback for the consumers, as already the Nougat update is released after 7 months of delay.
