The ZTE Axon 7 Mini has an early surprise for users of this phone as the company has announced that it is welcoming beta testers for Android 7.1.1 Nougat as it prepares for the official release of the OS.
Given that the ZTE Axon 7 Mini is a midrange phone, this is an interesting move from ZTE, a move that will make the handset one of the first units in the category to receive the new version of the OS. It’s quite easy to get started, where the company has a form that interested parties need to fill.
As usual with beta testing programs, ZTE has a few rules of its own, among them providing feedback to the Chinese OEM whenever needed to. You will also be asked to complete tasks and surveys assigned to you – all of which are aimed at making the OS a better experience when it finally goes public for other Axon 7 Mini users in the U.S.
Note that beta testing programs are usually limited and as such, you’ll also need to hurry if you want to be part of this Android 7.1.1 Nougat beta testing on the ZTE Axon 7 Mini. Since the preview is being conducted through the company’s forum, you might want to sign up for an account there before getting into the beta program. This will ensure that you get your hands on any information/updates in time – along with the other Axon 7 Mini users taking part in the program.
If you are interested, fill out this form and you should be good to go in a few.
