Nextbit announces Ember color variant for $299, adds video support for backups in August update

Ever since its start as a Kickstarter campaign, the Nextbit Robin has been available in two color schemes: Mint and Midnight. Now a third color is joining the ranks, and it's just as interesting and even a little bolder and brighter than the Mint variant: Ember.

The colorway mixes black sides and back with bright red (a little magenta'ish if you ask me) end caps, power button, and volume button. It's striking to say the least, especially with the buttons on the sides popping right off the black plastic. Here are a couple more pictures from different angles.

The Ember variant is produced in limited quantity and will sell for the same $299 as the other colors.

OnePlus announces OxygenOS 3.2.2 bug squashing OTA for the OnePlus 3

Android Marshmallow comes to the Xperia M5 and M4 Aqua

The Xperia Z series has marked the high-end of Sony's smartphone line for years. The M5 sits somewhere lower on the food chain, but not much lower. You're looking at a 5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, a 21.5MP camera, plus both water and dust resistance.

AT&T Galaxy Tab S2 gets Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA

AT&T is finally catching up on its Marshmallow OTA rollouts to its fleet of Android devices. And today's lucky winner of "Which device will get an OTA?" is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 2 (T817A).

Mouthful name aside, this may not be the most exciting tablet on the market, but it still deserves to be on the latest and greatest software version possible — even if only for a short time until Nougat is official. And it also deserves to catch up to its Verizon colleague: nobody wants to be left behind more than a month.

Apparently, the software has been rolling out since July 8, but AT&T just decided to update its support page (raise your hand if you see a trend of late updates in everything AT&T does lately).

The BlackBerry Priv on AT&T is finally getting its Marshmallow update

BlackBerry touted the security features of its Android build when announcing the Priv. It launched with Lollipop, but we thought surely it'll get a quick 6.0 update being so close to stock. How wrong we were. The unlocked Priv update started rolling out in late April, and the AT&T variant has been stagnating since then. Today is the big day, though. Android 6.0 is hitting the Priv on AT&T.
