Axon 7 (Android 7.1.1) - How Do I Unencrypt Phone?

My Axon 7 running Android 7.1.1 has the encryption status as Encrypted. I have tried factory reset and it still is stuck as encrypted. Please can someone walk me through how to unencrypt my device?

Thank you!

    I do believe that this is a requirement since Marshmallow. I think in order to force it unencrypted, you would need to root the device and possibly install custom rom/bootloader.
