Back in February of this year, ZTE announced that the Axon 7 would be getting updated to Android 7 Nougat, bringing with it plenty of new features. Now the manufacturer has another announcement to make.
The “little brother” of the ZTE Axon 7, known as the Axon 7 Mini, is now getting updated to Android 7.1.1 Nougat as well. The rollout begins today, and ZTE says if your phone has 30% of battery or less, you should connect it to the charger before you start the download and installation process.
To check for the update, just open the Settings app –> System Update and then start the download from there. ZTE says the Axon 7 Mini will restart during the process, which “may take a bit longer than usual,” but also notes that this is normal so owners shouldn’t worry. Once the update is finished you’ll be asked to unlock the handset via an alternative method other than the fingerprint sensor, just for safety.
Here are the new features Axon 7 Mini owners should take note of with the Android 7.1.1 update, which includes support for T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling:
- Android 7.1.1 provides updated emojis, plus the ability to use two or more languages at once. Communicating is now easier (and more fun) than ever.
- Not only can you text in two languages, but you can “be in two places” at once! Android N gives you the ability to switch between apps or run them side-by-side. How fast can you multitask?
- Android N also provides the ability to save even more battery power, revamped notification updates and a whole lot more so you can customize the Axon 7 Mini even more.
- With T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling support you can now talk and text without using data!
Who of you out there has an Axon 7 Mini and is excited to get your hands on Android Nougat?
