Original story follows:

After a short delay, the Nougat update for the ZTE Axon 7 is finally rolling out and it brings Google Daydream compatibility. ZTE has as low as $50 its own VR headset.

This makes the Axon 7 the cheapest way to get into Google’s VR ecosystem. Other supported phones include the Pixels and the Moto Zs, the Huawei Mate 9 Pro (which recently got the Daydream certification) and the Asus Zenfone AR (which isn’t on sale yet).

Of course, the usual Nougat treats like Multi window and improved battery life are present as well.

This is just great. ZTE succeeded in making a great toy to play with while their phone software has so many bugs in it an anteater would be in paradise.
