ZTE Axon 7 Mini getting Android 7.1.1 update with T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling support


ZTE has announced a new update for the Axon 7 Mini, and it’s an especially notable update for T-Mobile customers.

The ZTE Axon 7 Mini is now receiving an update to Android 7.1.1. Included with this update is T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling support, meaning that T-Mo customers can make calls and send texts over Wi-Fi, even if they’re in an area with weak cellular coverage.

Other features included with the ZTE Axon 7 Mini’s update to Android 7.1.1 include:

  • Android 7.1.1 provides updated emojis, plus the ability to use two or more languages at once. Communicating is now easier (and more fun) than ever.
  • Not only can you text in two languages, but you can “be in two places” at once! Android N gives you the ability to switch between apps or run them side-by-side. How fast can you multitask?
  • Android N also provides the ability to save even more battery power, revamped notification updates and a whole lot more so you can customize the Axon 7 Mini even more.

If you’ve got an Axon 7 Mini, you can check for your update to Android 7.1.1 by going into Settings then tapping System Update.

ZTE updated the standard Axon 7 to Android 7.1.1 earlier this year, so it’s good to see the Axon 7 Mini get the same update, complete with T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling support. If you’ve got an Axon 7 Mini that’s running on T-Mo, be sure to install this update as soon as you can.

    ZTE keeping up with the big boys.. The 7 is a year old, and still getting prompt updates. Very interested to see what the ZTE Axon 8 improves on from the 7… hopefully they dont jack up the price.. maybe 6GB RAM minimum with an incentive for current Axon customers?

      ZTE has come a long way, my sister in law has this device and she loves it. I had a Zmax and have a Zmax 2 unlocked as my backup phone.

    Texting over WiFi where no data signal (indoors) for T-Mobile can reach would be wonderful. Have the Nexus 6P and in 7.0 Google really destroyed mms. Most texts fail to come through on T-Mobile.

    Might try this phone
