ZTE Axon 7 NC 3-16

Got a ZTE Axon 7? Live in the US? Fancy a bit of Nougat preview action? If your Axon 7 model number is A2017U then you’re eligible to apply for ZTE’s Nougat preview program for U.S. residents.

You’ll have to be a member of the Z-Community to apply, but signing up for that is a simple enough affair. Then just head to the link below, check the box at the bottom and fill in the application form. It’s unclear how fast you might receive access to the preview, but if you’re interested in giving it a shot, here’s the link.

The official Android Nougat update for the Axon 7 isn’t expected until some time in early 2017 (if you believe ZTE Germany, it’s scheduled for January). But the exact rollout date will likely depend on how smoothly the beta program goes and how many bugs need to be ironed out before going public.
