Back in March, the ZTE Axon 7 began receiving an update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Now it’s time for that phone’s little sibling to get the same update.
ZTE is now updating the Axon 7 Mini to Android 7.1.1. One of the most notable features of this update is support for T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling, which means that T-Mo customers will be able to make calls as well as send and receive texts over Wi-Fi if they’re in an area with little or no cellular coverage.
Here’s ZTE’s full changelog for this update:
- Android 7.1.1 provides updated emojis, plus the ability to use two or more languages at once. Communicating is now easier (and more fun) than ever.
- Not only can you text in two languages, but you can “be in two places” at once! Android N gives you the ability to switch between apps or run them side-by-side. How fast can you multitask?
- Android N also provides the ability to save even more battery power, revamped notification updates and a whole lot more so you can customize the Axon 7 Mini even more.
- With T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling support you can now talk and text without using data!
If you’ve got a ZTE Axon 7 Mini, you can now go into your phone’s Settings app to manually check for this update. ZTE cautions that your phone may restart during the update process, but that this is normal.
It’s great to see ZTE continue to support their phones with Android OS updates and new features. There aren’t a ton of Android devices out there running Android 7.1 or higher, so for Axon 7 Mini owners, this update is definitely worth getting excited about.
