Here at AndroidGuys we like ZTE phones quite a lot, especially the Axon 7 and its spin offs. The original Axon 7 was launched on the US market in June 2016 with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.

It’s been a few months since Android 7.0 Nougat was announced and OEMs have started rolling out the new build for their premium devices. Now ZTE announces it will soon offer Axon 7 owners in the US a taste of Android 7.0 Nougat.


The Chinese company has announced a Nougat preview program for users of its Axon 7 smartphone in the US. But only phones carrying model number A2017U will be able to participate in the program.

To be part of the program, you will need to create an account with the ZTE US Community. Then you will need to fill in the registration application.

ZTE hasn’t said anything about when exactly it plans to roll out the update for everyone, but we’ll probably know more soon.

The ZTE Axon 7 is a worthy phone that offers the services of a 5.5-inch display with 1,440 x  2,560 pixel resolution. It features a Snapdragon 820 under the hood which works with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The phone carries a 20MP main camera plus an 8MP selfie one. And now the device is bound to get even better with the Android 7.0 Nougat update incoming.


ZTE recently unveiled a limited-edition Axon 7 which comes equipped with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Despite its impressive spec sheet, this Axon 7 version might have to wait before it gets upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat.
