You can now unlock the bootloader on your ZTE Axon 7 or Axon Pro

ZTE Axon 7

#ZTE has given some good news to customers of the #Axon7 and the #AxonPro. The company has announced that owners of the handsets will be able to unlock the bootloaders on their devices right away, as long as they send in a request form. The company mentions that it could take up to three days after that for ZTE to send you the unlocking process. It is also made apparent that the warranty (known as Passport 2.0) will be voided once you unlock the bootloader.

When the ZTE Axon 7 was originally announced, it was mentioned that the bootloader on the device will be unlockable, allowing users to flash as many ROMs on the device as they want. However, things were quite different when the device actually reached the customers’ hands as the smartphone was revealed to be packing a locked bootloader. The company’s customer service team mentioned that the bootloader would not be unlockable, basically contradicting what was said during the announcement.

But as it turns out, this was all just a misunderstanding from ZTE’s Twitter and customer support team. This was clarified by Peter Shih, who is the forum moderator at the ZTE community forum. So the good news is that if you own a ZTE Axon 7 or Axon Pro in the U.S., you will be eligible to get your bootloader unlocked, but only if you want to.

#ZTE has just introduced the #Axon7 to the American markets with a price tag of $400. The handset is an exciting prospect given the kind of hardware it packs underneath. This is no less than a flagship that you would find in the markets, so don’t disregard the device by merely looking at the price.

To give you a brief rundown, the handset comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a quad-core Snapdragon 820 SoC, a 20-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (expandable), Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and 3,250 mAh battery. The smartphone is also equipped with a fingerprint scanner, much like every other flagship in the market today.

The camera is OIS-equipped as well, which makes this a very attractive proposition in the market. The handset is up for pre-order right away, but will not ship until August 17. If you’re keen on getting the Gold version, you will have to wait until September 9.
