ZTE’s current flagship device, the Axon 7, was one of the first to receive Android 7.0 Nougat when it first arrived on other mobile devices outside of the Google Pixel. Just recently, the Axon 7 jumped from Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Android 7.0 Nougat and included Daydream capabilities, and now ZTE is sending out the Android 7.1.1 update to the handset.
The update includes T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling, Daydream updates, security patches, and emojis/gifs for the keyboard:
- T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling support – T-Mobile Axon 7 users will now be able to send and receive both calls and text messages over Wi-Fi. Don’t have service in a certain area? Don’t miss a beat by connecting to a wireless network to continue talking and texting.
- More ways to communicate – With 7.1.1, Google made all its emojis gender-equal, representing a wider range of professions for both men and women – so now you can be the astronaut you always wanted. Plus, you gain the ability to send gifs directly from your keyboard on supported apps. Go ahead, express yourself!
- Daydream update & optimization – One of our favorite 2017 announcements was that the Axon 7 was finally Daydream-ready! With Android 7.1.1, we’re making your virtual reality even better by updating and optimizing your experience.
- Google security patches updates through Feb 2017 – Speaking of security, Google fixed all of its known vulnerabilities with 7.1.1. Sound boring? You may be right, but these patches are critical in keeping your information even more safe while sending emails, browsing the website, texting, or processing media files.
Other than those features mentioned, this update also includes miscellaneous performance improvements and bug fixes.
So far, ZTE has been pretty quick on keeping the Axon 7 updated to the most recent Android OS. If you have an Axon 7, have you received this new update yet? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.Source: ZTE
