ZTE Axon 7's Android Oreo update will bring a near-stock UI, improved battery life

ZTE USA today announced that owners of the Axon 7 smartphone can now register to be part of an Android 8 Oreo beta program - in order to test the software update before ZTE can publicly release it.
Launched as a flagship phone back in 2016, the ZTE Axon 7 initially ran Android 6 Marshmallow, and was updated to Android 7 Nougat in 2017. According to ZTE, following "a request voiced by consumers," the Android 8 Oreo update will bring a near-stock Android experience to the Axon 7. Apparently, users aren't too fond of ZTE's own MiFavor UI that the phone originally came with, so they should be glad when Oreo lands with a near-stock UI.
Thanks to the upcoming Android Oreo update, the ZTE Axon 7 will also benefit from improved battery life, faster boot speeds, picture-in-picture (PiP) mode, and more enhancements. Unfortunately, for now, ZTE doesn't have an exact release date for the public release of the update. Anyway, if you own an Axon 7 and you want to register for the Oreo beta program, you can do so via the second source link below.
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 20 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2150 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3250 mAh(24h 3G talk time)

I would never say it's a flagship killer. But at least it has a really good AMOLED display, and it's Daydream VR supported.

I had the phone for about 6 months. Stereo sound was the best in any phone. 3 things were not good, fingerprint scanner, The lack of backlit nav buttons and honestly the battery were the reasons I moved on. For the money great phone.
