The Android Nougat update for the Axon 7 will be delayed a bit. ZTE promised a January release but looks like it will be out some time this Q1.
Just like many other handset makers, ZTE debuted a beta program for the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Axon 7. Unfortunately, there seem to be some issues that made ZTE postpone the release of the update to a later date.
In a Facebook post for ZTE Germany, the company claims that the update is not meeting its “quality standards”. We’ve seen many companies begin to release the update, only to halt the rollout due to various issues that appeared after the rollout began.
It seems this is the case with the Nougat update for the Axon 7, and we can only hope that ZTE gets everything squared away sooner rather than later. However, it’s better that ZTE finds and recognizes these bugs now, versus getting everyone’s hopes up only to pull the update after it already started rolling out.
The Axon 7 is still one of the best options on the market, and ZTE is still pushing beta updates, so hopefully all the kinks will be worked out soon.
