While more than just a few other popular handsets are waiting for the first Android Nougat update, the Axon 7 receives Android 7.1.1, about a month after being updated to Nougat.

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.
