Indeed for now is very clear Samsung, the world's largest smartphone marker, does not have any phones available on the market which would run Google's latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
What's worse is there won't be any Samsung smartphones powered by Nougat until later this year when we hope the South Korean company will be able to push the Android 7.0 to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.
LG already launched the Nougat-powered V20, while Huawei is expected to debut its Mate 9 flagship in the coming weeks. Now we've received word that another Chinese company plans to release its own take on an Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone, ZTE.
An unannounced ZTE smartphone that goes by the codename BV0800 has just been spotted at GFXBench, so it's safe to assume the handset maker is now testing the phone before making it official.
It's interesting that this phone, while not a flagship by the look of its specs, is powered by Android 7.0 Nougat. If the data at GFXBench proves to be accurate, then ZTE is likely to launch a not so expensive Nougat handset in the coming months.
Mid-range specs with one improvement (selfie camera)
The ZTE BV0800 sports a decent 5.2-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution. It's also powered by a mid-range 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 505 processor, which is complemented by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory.
The phone also packs a 12-megapixel camera in the front, which can capture 4K video, but there's also a similar photo snapper in the front. In this case, the phone will also appeal to those looking for a device that takes great selfies.
These are all the details revealed at GFXBench, but we suspect ZTE's Nougat-powered smartphone will make headlines again in the next couple of weeks.
One thing that we're a bit afraid of is that ZTE might only launch the so-called BV0800 in China, so customers in other countries might not be able to get it. Fingers crossed, though, for a worldwide release.
