Updated on September 10, 2020: Well, there are a bunch of devices along with the Asus Razer Phone 2, that is still waiting to get updated with the Android 10 update. What’s funny is that Google recently put the Android 11 update out in the open and other OEMs are already prepping up for the stable release of the update. And now talking about the Android 10 update for the Razer Phone 2, a new update is indeed spotted for the device. But unfortunately, it is the September 2020 security patch. On one hand, it is the latest security patch but on the other hand, it is still based on Android 9 Pie. Kind of a frustrating scenario to be in. Anyways, The update is purely incremental in nature and just bumps the security patch level to September 2020. The update weighs in a mere 91.61 MB in size.
Updated on July 13, 2020: The future of Android 10 does not look certain for the Razer Phone 2 users. As per the latest information, the customer support reveals that there is no information as to when the Android 10 update will be pushed for the phone. In a chat between Razer Phone 2 owner and customer support, the customer support clearly does not seem to have any information related to the release of the Android 10 update. One positive thing that we can take out from the chat is that this query has been raised to the concerned team. Note that customer support does not always have the correct information, so take this piece of info with a pinch of salt.
Updated on June 4, 2020: Razer seems like they have no answer as to when the Razer Phone 2 will be updated to Android 10 or whether there are any plans from the OEM to update it or not? The device has already picked up two major OS updates (From Android Nougat to Android 9 Pie) and the possibility of Android 10 update looks thin. Customer support has no clue about anything related to Android 10 for the Razer Phone 2 and by the looks of it, it seems like Razer Phone 2 is done and dusted with major OS updates and it would be really special if Razer Phone 2 pulls out another Android OS update from the OEM.
If you own a Razer Phone 2 smartphone then there is a new update available for your to download. The new update brings in the February 2020 security patchset for the device and is purely incremental in nature. However, this also rules out the fact that the device will receive an Android 10 update anytime soon. To recall, Razer Phone 2 packs in some high-end specs like the previous year’s latest Snapdragon 845 chipset which is paired with 8 GB of RAM, a massive 4000 mAh battery, a 5.72-inch screen, along with 64 GB of onboard storage. In the camera department, it has a dual-camera setup with 12 MP primary shooters, and in the front, you get a single 8 MP camera.
Going by the software update plan for a normal smartphone, the Razer Phone 2 is still eligible to receive at least one major firmware update since it was launched back in 2018 and came with Android Oreo out of the box. The new update is based on Android 9 Pie and it seems unlikely that the Android 10 update will hit the units any time soon.
What we can do is keep an eye on this development and wait for any official confirmation from the OEM itself about the Android 10 update for the Razer Phone 2. Point to note is that being a capable device, there should have some information about the Android 10 update for the Razer Phone 2 which has not yet happened by the OEM. Users are also pretty annoyed by this fact. Whatever the reason may be, it is high time that the Android 10 update for the device arrives in time as Google has already panned out a plan for its Android 1 update and there still plenty of devices like the Razer Phone 2 from different OEMs that are still awaiting Android 10 updates.
