ZTE's $40 Maven 2 gets Android 7.1.1 before the Galaxy S8

Himanshu, 03 August 2017

ZTE's Maven 2 might be a super-cheap, low-end phone, but it can now has something that even some flagships like Galaxy S8 don't have: Android 7.1.1 OS. The device has started receiving an update that bumps the OS version from 6.0 Marshmallow to 7.1.1 Nougat.

AT&T is pushing out the update to units on its network. Carrying a build number of Z831V1.0.0B29 and weighing in at 1.16GB, the update also brings along AT&T App Select and June security patches. AT&T Address Book, however, should be removed post-update.

Oh and yes, if you own a Galaxy S8/S8+, there's no reason to be sad, as a bump in OS version should be coming soon.
