Android 7.1.1 is Now Rolling Out to the ZTE Axon 7 Mini

If you’re rocking a ZTE Axon 7 Mini in the US, then we have some good news to share with you: the Android Nougat update is now rolling out for your device. The flagship Axon 7 received an update to Android Nougat back in March and now it’s time for its little brother to get the same treatment. While Android Nougat has been available for some of the Axon 7 Mini owners in the form of a preview version for a while now, it’s only today the company has started rolling out the stable version to all devices.

The update packs in all the standard Android Nougat features such as Multi-Window mode, bundled notifications, Quick Reply, improved Doze mode, support for Vulkan API, App Shortcuts as well as tons of other under-the-hood optimizations and stability improvements.

Update changelog:

  • 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!

For those on T-Mobile network, the update also enables support for T-Mobile WiFi calling. That means you will be able to talk and text even when there is no cellular connectivity as long as you’re connected to a WiFI network.

It’s unclear at the time being if this update also includes the latest June security patch from Google. In any case, if you have a ZTE Axon 7 Mini, keep an eye out for the update prompt in the coming days. As is always the case with OTA rollouts, it might take some time before it reaches all devices so don’t panic if you haven’t received an update notification yet.
