ZTE Axon 7 is one of the most popular Chinese flagships currently available in the US via official channels. Last month, this 5.5-inch handset received its first Nougat-based firmware. Now, ZTE already takes the next step and delivers a new firmware, this time based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The Android 7.1.1 Nougat update arrives as promised, while its predecessor had to go through a few delays and a series of preview/test builds. However, the new firmware does not come with any significant changes for those upgrading from Android 7.0 - there are a few new emojis, T-Mobile WiFi calling, minor Daydream VR updates and tweaks, as well as Google's latest security patches.
Thanks to the new firmware, ZTE Axon 7 enters a small club of handsets that run Android 7.1.1. Its companions include the latest Google Nexus and Pixel smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships, and Sony's Xperia X Concept.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
