ZTE announced back in December that the Axon 7 will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo at some point this year. Although the handset maker did not provide customers with a timeline, previous reports claimed the update may hit the Axon 7 as early as April.
We’re happy to report that ZTE might indeed keep its promise since an Android Oreo beta program is now in full swing in the United States. As a matter fact, the first beta build has already been rolled out to some ZTE Axon 7 users in the country who are part of the beta program.
Although we don’t have a full changelog of the first Android …
ZTE is not a brand that dominates the conversation around the dinner table in the states, although its profile might have received a little boost with the release of the ZTE Axon M. The dual-screened folding phone (yeah, we said it) may not offer the form factor that the Samsung Galaxy X will, but these are still early days for this category. We digress. What we want to discuss now is a new mystery model from ZTE that was just certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
Carrying the model number Z2321U, the Wi-Fi Alliance lists the device as an LTE/CDMA Multi-Mode Digital Mobile Phone. More interesting …
ZTE confirmed earlier this week it will provide Axon 7 owners with an Android 8.0 Oreo update at some point in the future. The Chinese company has already stopped Axon 7 production, which made us believe the high-end smartphone won’t be getting any major Android OS updates going forward.
ZTE’s announcement is a nice surprise for those who spent a small fortune to purchase the company’s flagship. Now, as far as the exact release date of the promised Android 8.0 Oreo update, ZTE Germany made some comments on the matter.
Apparently, Android 8.0 Oreo for ZTE …
Despite the fact that ZTE Axon 7 is no longer in production, the smartphone will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in the not so distant future. The information comes straight from the Chinese handset maker, so it’s 100% accurate.
If you’re still using the Axon 7, which was originally launched with Android Marshmallow on board, you should know ZTE is already working on Android Oreo for this specific smartphone.
Apparently, ZTE was inspired by customer feedback and decided those who purchased the Axon 7 deserve to keep using it for a longer time. Here is ZTE’s …
It looks like ZTE will not be manufacturing its Axon 7 high-end smartphone even though the device made its debut on the market one and a half year ago. The good news is the Chinese company hinted to a successor of its “incredibly successful” Axon 7, which could be unveiled as early as January.
ZTE doesn’t sell the Axon 7 on its online store any longer and if you visit the phone’s page you’ll that it’s “out of stock.” That made consumers who were still willing to pay to get one to turn to ZTE for more details on when exactly the Axon 7 will be back in stock.
Exclusively released on AT&T at the beginning of
November, the ZTE Axon M is one of the most interesting smartphones of 2017, thanks
to its dual-screen, foldable design. At the same time, we’d say this is also
one of the least practical handsets in recent years.
If you like the Axon M, but you haven’t bought it because of
its high price ($724.99), you may want to consider getting the phone now. For a
limited time, ZTE and AT&T are offering a $100 Visa reward card to Axon M
buyers – as long as they choose an eligible postpaid monthly service with voice
and data (at minimum $50 …
If you’ve been around PhoneArena for long enough, you may have seen those folding smartphone concepts – most notably the one from Samsung, where a single screen folds down the middle, transforming the device from a mini tablet to a classic smartphone and vice versa. The ZTE Axon M is built around that same idea, but realizes it through a much more straightforward approach. Basically, it’s a foldable dual-screen Android smartphone with two 5.2-inch displays held together by a hinge.
It must be pointed out that the ZTE Axon M is neither a concept, nor a prototype. In fact, you can get …
ZTE has provided us with a hint to its next flagship smartphone that might arrive in the coming months. It appears that the Chinese company was pretty content with the Axon 7 sales, so the phone is likely to have a sequel very soon.
While ZTE wasn’t too specific on the phone’s specs or release timeframe, it did say “there will certainly be a follow on the incredibly successful Axon 7.”
When the ZTE Axon 7 debuted in the United States, the smartphone offered many premium features a slightly lower price than other flagships available on the market. The price …
It was a novel idea which didn’t quite pan out in 2011, when the Kyocera Echo launched, but now, in 2017, where we have rumors and concepts of foldable smartphones increasing by the day, perhaps it’s time for a revisit to this form factor. After all, Android is much improved since then, as are hardware technologies. Much of how the Axon M works is based on built-in …
