A couple of ZTE phones have received WiFi certification from the WiFi Alliance (WFA). Carrying the model numbers Z852 and N9137, respectively, the devices run Android Nougat (version 7.1.1).
Sadly, and as is usually the case, the WFA listings for these handsets doesn't reveal anything else. However, given that the phone's have started collecting necessary certifications, we expect to hear more about them sooner than later.
Then it supports Wi-Fi ac 5 GHz, why would ZTE lie like that?
I own a ZTE Axon 7. Their reps are saying "Axon 7 does NOT support 5 GHz wifi". I have 2 home wifi networks, one on 2.4 GHz and other one on 5 GHz. My Axon 7 works on both!!!
If it only supports 2.4 GHz then I wouldn't bet on it lol
