ZTE Axon 7 getting new update in the US that adds support for 256GB microSD cards

The Axon 7 is one of the few high-end smartphones launched by ZTE in the United States. The smartphone recently received an upgrade to Android 7.1.1 Nougat, but the Chinese handset maker continues to improve the software on the phone to make it even more appealing to customers.

The latest update for ZTE Axon 7 brings a couple of interesting new features and improvements like support for large 256GB microSD cards to make room for even more storage space. In addition, ZTE added a new setting that allows Axon 7 users to enable “Night Mode.”

More importantly, smartphone users who hate having their devices cluttered with bloatware will be pleased to know the update will now allow them to disable some of the stock apps that come installed on the ZTE Axon 7.

Among the improvements included in the update, ZTE mentions some optimizations to the “Do Not Disturb” function, as well as device stability and security enhancements. Many miscellaneous performance improvements and other fixes (like fixes for Wi-Fi Calling issues) have been implemented too.

While the update has already been released in the United States, it will take about 48 hours until it reaches all ZTE Axon 7 units. If you own ZTE's smartphone, you should be looking for build number B25.
