The first Razer Phone was very well received as it was a proper gaming phone with a unique 120Hz screen. The company’s software support for this device has left a lot to be desired, though. It’s still on Android Oreo and even the security patch is a year old. The company has now said that the Razer Phone Android Pie update is going to be out soon.
It’s an update that many Razer Phone owners are looking forward to. It brings a number of new features to the device in addition to important bug fixes. Razer hasn’t provided a concrete date as yet but confirms that the Android Pie update for the Razer Phone should be out soon.
Things have been much better for the Razer Phone 2 which was released in October last year. It received the Android 9 Pie update in February this year. The original Razer Phone came out in late 2017 and is still running Android 8.1 Oreo with a security patch from July 2018.
The Razer marketing team confirmed on Reddit that an Android Pie upgrade with the Android security patches is going to be released for the original Razer Phone “in coming weeks.” So while there may not be a concrete date as yet, at least users can rest assured that an update has been developed and that it will be out in due course.
