ZTE Axon 7’s update history:

An Android Oreo leak to save the day: With ZTE’s business operations effectively dead, it seems like there’s no hope for Axon 7 owners to receive the Android Oreo update they were promised. However, XDA Senior Member NFound, a developer for the AOSP Extended custom ROM, has released the beta Android 8.0 Oreo build for the device. He has provided the update in the form of a TWRP-flashable build, which means you’ll need to unlock the bootloader of the device to flash it. He has also created a video showing off the build, for those of you who want to see what to expect before you go down this path.
