Razer Phone 2 latest update brings Android Pie with 4K recording at 60fps

28 February 2019 3

Finally, good news for Razer phones as the company starts rolling the Android Pie update for the Razer Phone 2. Last week we had reported that Razer laid off 2% of their workforce in the mobile division and also there won't be Razer Phone 3. At that time we also heard the company will be releasing the Android Pie update for the Razer Phone 2, today the company fulfilled the promise by releasing the update. The latest update brings overhauled UI with gestures support, optimized battery life and much more.

As the update is being rolled out as an OTA update so it won't be available for all the owners on a single day instead it will take few days before reaching out to everyone. The Razer Phone 2 was announced back in October 2018 running on the Android Oreo 8.1. At that time the company promised the Android Pie roll out but the exact release was not confirmed.


One of the new feature introduced with the Android Pie update is gesture navigation which isn't liked by everyone. The Razer Phone 2 owners can disable this feature from the settings. The update brings all the goodies of Android Pie including App actions, Adaptive brightness, Digital Wellbeing and much more. The security patch version is also updated to February 2019.

Another prominent aspect of the update is support for 4K recording at 60 frames per second. Last but not least the Razer Phone will also be available at a discounted price tag of $499.99 from March 1st for a limited time instead of regular $799.99.
