ZTE today said owners of the Axon 7 smartphone can take Android 8 Oreo for a beta test spin. People interested in testing the new system software will need to register with ZTE's Z-Community. The Axon 7 launched with Android 6 Marshmallow and has already been updated to Android 7 Nougat. ZTE says, based on customer requests, the build of Android 8 Oreo for the Axon 7 will be close to stock. The platform brings improved battery life to the Axon 7, as well as shorter boot times, picture-in-picture mode, notification dots, Google Play Protect, Android instant apps, and autofill for online forms. Android 8 Oreo should be available to Axon 7 owners starting February 14. ZTE did not say how long the OS will be tested by the public before Oreo is offered to all Axon 7 owners. The phone was originally sold unlocked for $400. It features a 5.5-inch quad HD screen, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 20-megapixel camera, and a 3,140mAh battery.

Android 8 Oreo In Beta

I have seen the new Axon 9 and while a flagship with Oreo out of the box, ZTE did away with the front Dolby stereo speakers which were a main selling point on the Axon 7. The screen ratio and the SD 845 processor seem to be the only things going for it as well as the price-point.
