Despite having been released months ago, for some reason the Razer Phone has yet to receive its Android Oreo update. However we suppose better late than never because in a tweet by the company’s account, they have confirmed that the Android Oreo update will be released for the handset in April 2018.

We should point out that Razer will be going straight to Android 8.1 Oreo versus Android 8.0 Oreo, which is good news since it means that users won’t need to wait for the next Oreo update. There is no specific release date provided, but Razer estimates that it will most likely be arriving in mid or late April.

However as we have seen in the past, sometimes bugs do pop up during development and deployment and testing, which means that there is a chance it could be delayed, but hopefully it won’t. The good news is that if you don’t think you can wait that long, Razer has announced that the Android Oreo developer preview for the Razer Phone is available if you’d like to get a taste.

Note that since this is a developer preview, which acts like a beta of sorts, what you see might not necessarily represent the final version, but like we said it is a taste of what’s to come.
