Android 7.0 Nougat update starts rolling out for ZTE Axon 7

ZTE's Axon 7 is now Daydream-ready, capable of identifying spam callers

Despite meeting all hardware requirements, the Axon 7 lacked the required software - part of which was Android 7.0 Nougat - in order to work with Google's virtual reality platform.

ZTE had previously meant to release the android Nougat update for their ZTE Axon 7 smartphone in January, although the update was delayed and ZTE said it would be released some time before the end of quarter one.

ZTE has announced that the Axon 7 is now receiving an update to Android 7.0 Nougat.

The government announced a range of measures aimed at encouraging the build-to-rent (BTR) sector. Expected amendments to planning rules , will be meant to allow more homes to be built for rent.

When ZTE launched the phone, they advertised it as Google Daydream ready. Users will still need to purchase a Daydream View headset, which is now on sale for $50.

As for Daydream, well, I guess it's time you grab a Daydream View headset from Google, yeah? Others members of this select club are the Pixels, the Moto Z, ASUS ZenFone AR and Huawei's Mate 9 Pro and Mate 9 Porsche Design. ZTE's midrange phone runs on a respectable Snapdragon 820 processor.

Setting aside its VR capabilities, the ZTE Axon 7 would still be a solid pick though and through. It has 4GB of RAM, 64 GB of built-in memory, and up to 128 GB of expandable storage. The new build brings users the option of multi-tasking on their device (running two apps at the same time on the display), improved battery and a brand set of emojis. The advanced chipset also allows the phone to play and record crisp, high-quality audio. These featured are available to Axon 7 owners thanks to a new partnership with Hiya.
