After getting an update with Wi-Fi Calling back in December, the ZTE Axon Pro is now being treated to another big software update.
ZTE is now pushing Marshmallow to the Axon Pro, moving it from Android 5.1.1 to Android 6.0. Along with that Android OS upgrade, the update brings fixes for “various Wi-Fi Calling issues,” camera performance enhancements, improved device stability, a new boot animation, and some other bug fixes. Also included are Android 6.0-specific features like Doze battery savings and Google Now on Tap.
The update is a beefy one, weighing in at 835MB, so you may want to find yourself a speedy Wi-Fi connection before downloading it. To check for the update manually, you can go into Settings > About phone > System updates > Update Now.
The ZTE Axon Pro may not be carried by T-Mobile, but with support for band 12 LTE and Wi-Fi Calling, it is one of those unlocked phones that’ll play nicely with T-Mo if you want it. The Axon Pro is even more enticing now that it’s got Android 6.0, and if you’re interested in picking one up, now would be a good time to do so. That’s because Amazon is discounting both the 32GB and 64GB Axon Pro models, with the former priced at $329.98 ($70 off) and the latter carrying a price of $349.99 ($100 off). Amazon is also offering the standard ZTE Axon for $199.98 ($130 off), but its Android 6.0 rollout has been delayed and will begin in the coming months.
