If you’re proudly rocking the ZTE Axon 7 and have been eagerly awaiting the Android Nougat update – you’d better get comfortable. According to a tweet from ZTE Mobile Germany, the Axon 7 won’t be getting Android 7.0 until January 2017. We can only hope that by the time January rolls around, it will have become Android 7.1 instead.

We can’t guarantee that U.S.-based Axon 7s will get the update at the same time as those in Deutschland, but it’s a pretty safe bet seeing as there’s no carrier-optimization or testing to be done. Here’s the tweet from ZTE Mobile DE, which roughly translates as “Android 7.0 is coming, stay tuned! In January there will be an update to Android Nougat for the Axon 7. That’s still tasty!”.

ZTE U.S. hasn’t tweeted anything to the same effect yet, but we’re keeping an eye out for U.S. confirmation. As you likely know if you’re reading this, ZTE has been pushing a few updates lately, but the delayed rollout of Nougat is sure to disappoint more than a few folks.

When were you expecting to see Nougat? Did you ever expect it to take until next year?
