During the CES 2017 event, ZTE has talked about its Blade V8 Pro and the Hawkeye handsets. However, at the same event, the company has taken its time to talk about its most popular phone of 2016: ZTE Axon 7.
The ZTE Axon 7 device has been released last year and it came preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. The smartphone costs about $400, which is a really good investment that you can make in early 2017 for a device like this. ZTE claims that the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Axon 7 is in the works, but it didn’t mention when exactly this will happen.
ZTE has opened a BETA program in the US for the Android 7.0 Nougat OS for the Axon 7 back in December 2016, so it should not take long until this operating system will be released for all owners of this smartphone.
Honor 5C Receives An Android 7.0 Nougat Beta Test Program In India
On the other hand, Huawei has released the Android 7.0 Nougat BETA Test Program in India for the Honor 5C smartphone. The Nougat BETA is currently in the preview stage, which means that the testers will be able to identify the bugs and report them to the developers in order to fix the issues before the new operating system will be released to the public.
We remind you that the Huawei Honor 5C has been released back in June 2016 and it runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 skin on top of it. According to the company, the BETA test will take place in two batches. The first batch will consist of only 50 testers, while in the second batch, there will be about 100 testers.
As you can see, more and more companies are now trying to update their Android devices to the latest Nougat version. Unfortunately, not all devices are able to run the latest Android OS version, which means that they will stick to Android 6.0 Marshmallow or even an earlier version of this operating system.
