ZTE Axon 7 Mini receives Android 7.1.1, brings Wi-Fi calling on T-Mobile

Those of you using the Axon 7 Mini know that the Nougat update has already been available on the Axon 7 since around March. That’s about to change today, which is when the “Mini” version of the Axon 7 will be getting Android Nougat 7.1.1 for all markets.

The update brings Nougat’s enhancements, which should help to improve the Axon 7’s mid-range Snapdragon 617 CPU performance and smoothness, as well as Nougat’s battery optimizations. Also new on the Axon 7 Mini is multi-window, updated emojis, dual-language support, and new support for T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling.

To make sure you’re ready for the OTA update when it arrives, make sure the battery is charged to at least 30%. Then you can head to Settings > System Update to download the OTA. Just know that if you have a fingerprint set up, you’ll need to provide an alternative unlock method for securing your data.
