ZTE has today announced that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is now rolling out to the company’s Axon Pro smartphone. While the update may not be bringing any features specifically geared for the Axon Pro, it does bring many of the great features found in the latest version of Google’s mobile OS including Doze, Now on Tap, and more.
Of course it’s recommended that you have a WiFi connection to download this 835 MB update, and you’ll need to head to “Settings” -> “About phone” -> “System updates” -> “System updates” -> “Update Now” after the update has been downloaded. Sadly, ZTE says that this update is only for Axon Pro and that regular Axon owners should “stay tuned”.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow Now Available for Axon Pro
When we launched the Axon Pro this past July we made a promise to our consumers that we will support and provide ongoing Android updates to our flagship device. Today, we are keeping this promise by providing the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow for you to enjoy!
The upgrade from Lollipop to Marshmallow is quite significant and there are several new features you should explore and use. You can find out about all the updates here, but to give you a glimpse of what’s ahead, here are just a few of our personal favorites that have been added that we think makes Android just that much better.
- Doze – With Marshmallow, Android introduced its Doze mode that puts your phone into a deeper sleep when not in use for a long period of time. The result? Increased battery life throughout the day or night for your Axon Pro.
- Now on Tap –If you’re like us, meeting up with friends at a new, local spot happens very often, but sometimes you don’t know where the restaurant is or perhaps what type of food it serves. Now, Android can anticipate your needs by a simple long press on the home button that provides quick access to learn more about the hang out spot or how to get there. Use this feature while surfing the web, checking email or almost any other activity to get the information you need at a press of the button.
- New app drawer –Marshmallow’s app drawer has been redesigned with new enhancements that make it quicker and easier to find the app you need most. Incorporating fast alphabetic scrolling and pinning your most used apps at the top, among a few other tweaks, searching and finding your favorite app just became a whole lot easier.
