Pioneer in the world of gaming laptops – Razer has forayed into the premium smartphone business with the launch of Razer Phone, back in 2017. It was the first-ever gaming-centric phone that the company had announced globally. The successor had also been launched last year — the Razer Phone 2, which received Android Pie update early this year. However, the predecessor launched in 2017 hadn’t received any update from the past year, reports Droid-Life.
Early this week, a Reddit post by folks at Droid life have mentioned the long due of updates about Razer’s first gaming smartphone. That said, the executives from Razer has later responded proposing the company plans of rolling out updates to the first iteration of its gaming phone. The response includes good news to Razer fans, suggesting the company is set to release Google’s latest Android 9.0 Pie update, which also includes the supposedly latest Andoird security updates to the Razer Phone 2017 in the coming weeks. The company had further stated that they are thankful for the patience and support from the Razer fans community.
To recall, the Razer Phone launched in late 2017 had featured the first 120Hz refresh rate display on any smartphone that included a 5.7-inch LCD panel that was a QHD display as well. The gaming smartphone had then launched with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC with Adreno 540 GPU — followed by 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The device featured (12MP+12MP) rear cameras and a single 8MP selfie shooter. A decent 4000mAh battery powered the Razer phone.
The Razer Phone 2017 had shipped with Andoird Nougat out-of-the-box and later got upgraded to Android Oreo as well. And, now the company determining to update the device (launched two years ago) to Android Pie is sure worth mentioning. The possibility of Android Pie rollout to Razer Phone 2017 could be expected by next month. Stay connected to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
