Emerging smartphone maker ZTE has announced to release the Android Nougat to its flagship Axon 7 early next year.
ZTE's German arm took to twitter to officially reveal that the Axon 7 owners will be able to taste Google's latest candy-flavoured OS update in January 2017.
Though January release date may sound late, but it's still a commendable job by ZTE. For those uninitiated, the Nexus/Pixel phones have limited time for Nougat exclusiveness over Non-Google branded phones. As of now, except LG no other OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) have released the Nougat update to their devices.
By announcing release date, ZTE has ensured their fans have something cheer about the new-year.
Android Nougat brings night mode for reading, multi-window options, bundled notification, improved battery optimisation, performance tweaks, and various other value-added features to enhance users' experience.
In a related development, ZTE is reportedly working on a new budget device code-named BV0800, which is said to come with Android Nougat out-of-the-box. It is expected to sport a 5.2-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display and come with a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Adreno 505 graphics engine, 3GB RAM and 32GB in-built storage. It is also said to house a 12MP with 4K video recording capability and an equally superior 12MP front shooter.
As of now, there is no word on when ZTE plans to release the new device.
