ZTE might not be the most prolific names in the smartphone industry, but the company is doing a great job keeping its budget devices up to date with the latest software. For instance, the ZTE Maven 2 is now receiving a new software update that installs this month’s Android security patch.
The Maven 2 has been around since mid-2017 and at launch, it came preinstalled with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but it has since been upgraded to Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Since there are no plans for upgrading the device to Android Oreo, monthly security updates are the best you can get from now henceforth.
This puts huge significance on the latest update, which is rolling out over the air with build number Z831V1.0.0B32. However, like any other OTA update, it’ll take a few days before all ZTE Maven 2 handsets get the notification to download and install the new firmware.
You can either wait for the OTA notification or try a manual update via the Settings menu. Regardless of the path you choose, make sure you have a stable Wi-Fi connection and enough battery juice before you hit the “Update” button.
