The company has announced a preview program for the Mini's Android 7.1.1 update. If you own such a device you can participate in the preview by registering at the official ZTE community forum. You will need to sign and strictly follow a Non-Disclosure Agreement, complete some time-sensitive tasks and surveys, as well as provide detailed bug reports when you encounter problems.
If none of those things sound too complicated to you, then head on over to the first Source link below to put your name on the list. Yet keep in mind that "space is very limited" and you may not be selected to participate. In case you are, you will be contacted by ZTE.
Yes, but in this case hearing is believing, best audio output zte has ever had
Cool. Any word on the Blade V8 Pro?
Is there anything spectacular about this phone that I would want to downgrade from the ZTE I now have I would like to see
