The distribution of Android 7.1.1 for the ZTE Axon 7 in the USA, which started in the middle of the month, follows immediately the availability of the update in Germany. The update updates Android from version 7.0 to 7.1.1 and brings a new security patch level as of March 2017. There are also Daydream optimizations.
ZTE is talking about updates and optimizations to Google Daydream, which should lead to a better VR experience. There is no detailed description of the changes. The ZTE Axon 7 can be used with Google’s Daydream View and Daydream applications (Test) since last month.
The OTA update on Android 7.1.1 also provides the smartphone with new Google emojis as well as the option to send animated GIF files directly from the keyboard. The new security patch level is on the March 2017 update after the update. The March update from Google has not yet been integrated.
