People were really delighted by the Nextbit Robin when it was released, and it was highly appreciated especially when it went on sale quite recently. Many people were not expecting to get any major updates to the software since Nextbit was bought by Razer. However, to many people’s surprise, the phone is currently receiving an update for Andorid 7.1.1.
A Welcomed Change
Before that, Robin was running on the Android 7.0 Nougat, which was an update that arrived in March. Sadly, the update comes together with the April 1st security patch, and not the May one. Android 7.1 comes with some really interesting features, such as improvements for the display and the touch capacity, paired with some useful system updates.
Many people are delighted by the Daydream VR mode, which supports VR, as you can tell, and by the Night Light, which refers to a blue light filter designed to relieve the strain on your eyes. The manual storage manager that is included in it is also handy, plus you will see some design changes, such as the circular icons of the apps. The fingerprint swipe down gesture is yet another thing you should be looking forward to.
The Pixel line received most of the new updates, but fans are happy to see that Google is implementing them to other phones too, though they are keeping to a slew of Pixel-exclusive functionalities. However, even if you did not receive the official update, you can still implement it through Xposed modules or flashable ZIPs.
Back to Nextbit, you should know that they released a factory image of the 7.1.1 on the Razer Insider for Robin. If you need to have a clean update or want to wipe the phone completely, there is the place to go for the most recent version.
