ZTE delays the Nougat update for Axon 7

ZTE Axon 7 Android smartphone to get Nougat update by the end of Q1 2017

The update was expected to arrive this month, but now ZTE pushes the launch date of Android 7.0 for the Axon 7 handsets to a later date. Although this date is not public yet, the company says the update should arrive by the end of March.

A few months ago, ZTE promised to deliver the Android 7.0 Nougat firmware to Axon 7 devices in January. Recently, a Nougat beta program for Axon 7 users in the US has started, but new registrations are no longer accepted. Sadly, it looks like the long-awaited update has been delayed a few weeks, if not almost two months.

According to ZTE Germany, Axon 7 handset owners will have to wait for the update because the current state of the new firmware has quality issues. These problems have not been revealed, but ZTE says Android Nougat would arrive by the end of this quarter to Axon 7 devices.

The good part of the delay is that, since the update promises to come with Google Daydream support, ZTE will skip Android 7.0 and Axon 7 users should get ready to receive Android 7.1.1. Remains to see if the update arrives in the coming month or ZTE does its best to keep the promise and to spend all the available time to refine the firmware, delivering it at the end of March.

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.
