Axon 7 is one of the hottest Android devices from the Chinese Electronics giant ZTE. After recent ZTE Android Oreo beta program, there is no official news on the final release. The device became very popular at launch due to the topnotch hardware specifications. The device is open to development and plenty of custom ROMS are readily available. One of the ROMs is the latest LineageOS 15.1 which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. However, Axon 7 users might have to pay for the unofficial LineageOS 15.1 build for now. So download and update Axon 7 to Android 8.1 Oreo with LineageOS 15.1 ROM.
The manufacturer ZTE, due to denial of support from the US government, can not utilize US applications and services. So the device may probably won’t get any Android software OTA updates in the future. Although there are a few reports about ZTE getting back into the smartphone business, we cannot be certain until an official announcement comes up. So your best thing is to stay updated with the unofficial OS like the LineageOS 15.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
Follow this step-by-step guide to install LineageOS 15.1 on ZTE Axon 7.
