More than three months after its larger sibling received the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, the Axon 7 Mini gets the same firmware version as an OTA update that also provides WiFi calling to T-Mobile users.

The ZTE Axon 7 flagship received Android 7.1.1 Nougat more than three months ago, but its smaller sibling did not receive the same treatment back then. Now, the Axon 7 Mini finally gets the Android 7.1.1-based firmware update. A beta test for a limited number of Axon 7 Mini owners started back in late March and it looks like the Chinese company had to overcome quite a few issues before being able to deliver this update.

The Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for ZTE Axon 7 Mini comes with the well-known changes such as split-screen support, bundled notifications, improved settings, new emojis, improved Doze mode, a bunch of tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security patch from Google. In addition to them, ZTE Axon 7 Mini owners who use their handsets on T-Mobile receive support for WiFi calling.

Before starting the update, ZTE recommends ensuring that the battery is at 30 percent or above. Those who did not receive the OTA notification yet should go to Settings>System Update and initiate the process manually. Once the update is complete, owners need to add an alternate unlock method in addition to using the fingerprint reader.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
