Re: Promised Android nougat update

Considering that its already mid January and that Nougat is only on its 2nd beta, I'm not sure it will launch soon. Maybe Feburary or later? I was expecting it to end sooner too.

Yeah, the team is working hard on getting the next release out...we're really close, and then Google needs to certify it, and then we can roll it out...could be a little longer, but we're nearly there!

Good luck guys - I signed up to be a beta tester cause I got a little impatient, but in case that program's closed already - happy to wait if it's dropping soon! It's really great that there is genuine support throughout this community, and I'm really enjoying the phone as is Smiley Happy

It looks like that's just a Robin running Omni ROM. So not official firmware.

Re: Promised Android nougat update

Any rough estimate by when will Google certify it? Also will it be 7.0 or 7.1?

Re: Promised Android nougat update

I think i can give this information out....

Google (this is my guess, not nextbit's) should certify it around a week after nextbit turns it over to them. With samsung's nougat beta, i think it took that long.

However this is what im not sure if i can give out, but i'll do it anyway.

Current beta is 7.0, so therefore the official nougat release should be 7.0. With our current track and wait times for software updates, i expect that by the time support ends for the robin we should be on 7.1.1 with the September/October 2017 security update.
