ZTE Axon 7 finally gets Android Nougat

ZTE Axon 7 Android handset gets Nougat update with Daydream VR support
ZTE Axon 7
This Qualcomm Snapdragon 820-powered, 5.5-inch Android handset launched as a Daydream VR-compatible device, and now it finally receives this feature thanks to a software update.

ZTE Axon 7 is a premium handset with excellent features that was unveiled back in May 2016 as one of the few devices to offer Google Daydream VR support. Sadly, it came with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and its users had to wait for a software update to receive that feature. Now the wait is over and ZTE Axon 7 finally receives its first Android Nougat firmware update.

The latest software update for ZTE's Axon 7 puts it next to more expensive Daydream VR handsets such as Google's Pixel/Pixel XL and Lenovo's Moto Z, as well as the upcoming Huawei Mate 9 Pro and Asus ZenFone AR. Next to Daydream VR support, the update comes with the usual Nougat improvements - split-screen mode, quick app switching, improved Doze mode, enhanced notifications, customizable Quick Settings, and more.

Priced around $400 USD, ZTE Axon 7 features a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, next to 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.
