Android 9 Pie will hit the original Razer Phone soon

Vlad, 18 July 2019

The Razer Phone 2 received its update to Android 9 Pie back in February, but so far the company has stayed mum on any timeline regarding the same software hitting the original Razer Phone from 2017.

Today in response to an angry Reddit post, an official Razer account revealed that the update to Pie for the Razer Phone is going to become available in the coming weeks. Unfortunately no more specific timeline was shared, but this is still the first confirmation from the company that it's still planning to bring last year's Android version to its first gaming phone.

The upgrade will include "Android security updates", hopefully something from 2019. Again the wording is vague, so that's all we have to go on. Razer thanks its fans for their support and patience, the latter of which you did need a lot of if you own the original Razer Phone. According to some Redditors, it's been over a year since Razer sent the last security update to its first smartphone, so all of this is way overdue.
