Even with half the brains at Paranoid Android moving to the OnePlus Oxygen OS team, PA is still going strong and has just announced support for a new device: the Nextbit Robin. The current PA release supports not just the Robin, but the OnePlus 3 as well.
This is a pretty special release though. Nextbit provided devices to the PA team – showing just how committed they are to supporting the custom ROM community, at a time when Google seems to want to make it harder – and worked closely with two of PA’s developers to get the ROM ready. The update is focused primarily on performance and the overall experience on the Robin, which as you you know, is unlike any other Android phone.
The changelog covers a few enticing tidbits, including the quick app switching function from Android 7.0 Nougat, custom routines, improved battery life and system-wide performance, stability fixes for Quick Settings, camera fixes, encryption bug fixes and more.

The PA team also had a few things to say about its Android Nougat build. The team confirmed they are already working on Nougat and that feature ports will begin soon for some devices. Some PA features will be deprecated as they are now part of the stock Nougat experience, but the team has “a few awesome things in mind to make Nougat even better”.
