Razer unveiled its new flagship gaming smartphone in October of last year with Android 8.0 Oreo on board. Today, a company executive confirmed that the phone's operating system has been upgraded to the latest Android version. And although the handset is not exactly geared toward mobile photography or videography, the update bumps up its video recording capability to 4K at 60 frames per second (fps) along with other improvements.
The Android 9.0 Pie update was initially known to be arriving for the Razer Phone 2 earlier this month. Now, Khang Thai, Razer's Global Marketing and Esports Manager, has officially confirmed that the update is currentlyrolling out to the gaming device.
In addition to the 4K@60fps support, Android Pie also brings with it a number of nifty enhancements to the Razer Phone 2 such as Adaptive Battery for adjusting the memory management. As expected, the updated phone has also received support for gesture navigation, notification management, digital well-being, the February 5 security patch, and bug fixes.
The latest update is currently for the unlocked version of the Razer Phone 2. The carrier versions are expected to receive Android Pie next month.
